    COCO COIR 3X3 grow space pots

    Hey again! I'm just wondering if anyone else has a 3X3 feet grow space and if so what size pots you use? I know that 7 gallon will give more yield than 5 gallon and 5 more than 3 etc however I'm just wondering if there is an optimal sizing for a grow space that's quite small such as the one I've mentioned, any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Current Grow: 1X Mimosa Evo - 1X BCN Critical XXL
    Medium: Atami Coco substrate with 30% perlite mixed in 1 gallon fabric pots until 3 gallon transfer

    Space​​: 3 foot X 3 foot X 6 foot lined in pandafilm

    Lighting: Mars Hydro TSW2000 at 20 inches away using dimmer to control light output

    Nutrients: Shogun A+B, Vitamax Calmag, Shogun pK 9/18, pH up & down

    Average Room Temp: 22°C night - 25°C day --- 71.6°F night - 77°C day.

    Average RH: 50% - 80% in seedling stage, 50% - 70% in vegative stage, 30% - 50% in Flower

    Methods Used: TBD

    There is a guy called Mr Goodbuds on YouTube. He grows autoflowers in a 3 x3 tent using six 5 gallon pots. His grows look good, so that is what I would use. May want only 2 or 3 if photoperiods.


      I’m in a 3x3. I have 4 autos. 3 in 3 gallon and 1 in 2 gallon.


        I use 2 gallon geopots - autoflowers only - easier to move around and easier to control the plants growing in them.

          I like the 3 gallon in that space because it does allow for good root growth but it also keeps the plants bit smaller than if you used a 7 gallon pot. One thing I always ask, is how long will they be in the pots? Anything over 4 months, I usually try and do a 5 gallon or larger. But if you are vegging for a month and then flowering, the 3 gallons should be great.

            Yeah I should be vegging for around a month hopefully and then begin the flowering process and I'll try some 3 gallons! Thank you for the help!
