    For what its worth , this is 3×3.5 closet ... Those are 5gal fabric smart pots. I think you can do the same.

      I use 3 gal. plastic pots. I started of with 4 plants in a 4x4 tent with a 1000w HPS light. Found out that I was wasting light. It is just as easy to grow 6 plants with the same amount of light. It's a little more of a pain in the ass to water, but it is worth the trouble.

        1.89 liters in .5 gal... So im guessing like close to 19 liters is the same size as 5gallons. Lol hope this helps.

          It depends on Medium

          If your Medium is Coco - it depends on your ability to fertigate frequently.

            I just got a package of 5 fabric pots from Ebay for $11.00. Had them within 5 days, free shipping!

              Looking to grow in soil. Photoperiod for now.



              I was thinking;



              Party Cup

              maybe a 5 litre

              end in a 20litre/25lite smart pot



              dont really want to transplant more than twice.

                10L seems a bit too much to me.. maybe 7.5L and then 20L ... leaning more towards a 20L than 25L

                Yeah, I'd lean the other way in soil, but up to you... 7.5 then 20 should be fine.
                I'd do 10 and then 30!

                Ive rang a few hydroponics stores.. They are saying 17L would be big enough so i am thinking to go for party cup -> 5-7L -> 17L

                I’ve got an air cooled tube reflector. It’s compatible with both bulbs but I have yet to run it through a cycle. I’m definitely worried about heat. If you’re able to pull a pound with a 600w than maybe I won’t even need a 1000w

                I am guessing your gram/watt would decrease with the 1000 watt, also if you’re going to be doing manifolds is grow from seed it’s much easier than from clones. And I think it’ll show in your yield.

              My whole goal was to cut the seedling and germination time out. I planned on having 1, maybe 2 mothers (different strains if 2). Then just veg rooted clones for a week or two before throwing them into the flower tent. Am I naive for thinking like that? Please explain if so. I love to gain further understanding.

                Yeah, Locrian99 and I are of one mind with regard to plant training.
                The other advantage of clones is $, if you are keeping a mother, it may be cheaper than buying seeds. But in my opinion, there are better ways to save money!
                Locrian99 haven't seen you on my journal in a while - come say hi to my girls!

                I do agree with you guys and believe seed is a lot more fun as well. Campesino you’re correct about money. It’s the only real advantage other than a few days cut off each harvest. With two tents even at 4 plants a tent it’s close to 80 bucks a month in seeds alone (if you’re growing premium strains which I plan to be). I have a lot of friends that grow and I feel like if I put the time into it, and grow really fire mothers, I’ll be able to hook up friends with quality clones and instead of spending 80$ a month I could make that back monthly and have free, solid, stalk to choose from when growing my own.

                All dandy right!? I live in a la la land

                I think you are pretty dramatically over-estimating the cost of seeds! If you buy in any kind of volume, even top self are cheaper than that. Can't be buying one at a time though. You also end up with loads of freebies, I mean it really ends up cheaper than you're thinking.

                In hydro it is possible that clones save a little time, but I am skeptical. In Coco, my clones absolutely take longer than my seeds. I have started twice with really good clones from a dispensary. So I am not even thinking about the time it takes to get them rooted. I start with rooted 8" healthy clones - and starting with a seed is faster. They cannot keep up or compete with seedlings... it's not even close.

              I use 7 gallon air pots. The plants love it.

                  I think the topics were all related!
                  All set-up, # of plants, length of veg, training, etc. There wasn't much specific to size of pots, but it all relates

                    I have been using 7 gallon air pots for all my plants. But I think next grow my larger photo plants are going into bigger pots. Havent decided on size yet but some of my plants just got so big this time that 7 gallons just doesnt seem big enough. That was vegging the plants for 8 weeks though.
