I’m used to growing Auto’s and in 3 gallon Smart Pots but now going to try growing"Regular" fems. My question is What size pot should I use, 3 or 5 gallon?? Thanks
7 or 10.
Look at the actual dimensions of the pots, you’ll a 10 gallon is surprisingly similar in size to a 7 gallon.
Think of it this way, gallons in a Cubic foot, 7.4. A cubic foot does not seem that big to me.
We have the room in our tents to give our ladies at least 7 gallon pots. They deserve the best.
So you don’t think 5 gal will work?
It will just fine. If you already have them, cool. Use’em. If you’re going to purchase, go 7 or bigger.
Seriously, look at the measurements of the dimensions. You’ll see how big you can go.
I have my first grow in 5 gallon buckets. I’m doing ok. Check out my journal.
I have 7 gallon smart pots for my next grow and I’m going to see about ten gallon smart pots for the grow after that.
Was that your very first grow?? I’m on my 5th and getting ready to start my 6th. I’m going to use what I already have and see how that works. When I first started I had no clue just went into growing. I thought it was going to be Easy… but I was Wrong, lol!! I understand the hesitation because my state TN is not, shall I say very fond of God’s Medicine and I could lose Everything I have if “they” found out!! I’ll stop right there because my blood pressure gets to boiling when I think about it! LoL
If you plan on transplanting into a bigger pot anyway, just use the cheap assed black nursery pots, the plug comes out so much easier that clothe pots.
