What pots to use for 12/12 from seed growing?

  1. Since the plants won't be very tall I wonder what size pots can I use?

    6in pots?

    1 gallon pots?

    How many quarts are in a 6in pot?

    Anyone know how many pots or plants can fit in a square foot?
  2. I'd say 3-5 gallon buckets for everything.
    Germ in cup - then transplant to at least a 3 gallon bucket.
    questions 2 and 3 depend on the dimensions of said pot.
  3. You wouldn't need a 3-5 gallon bucket for a 12/12 grow. 12/12 grows are naturally not very big because you skip the vegetation phase.

    I was looking at these 5"x5"x6" square pots in this hydro catalog I picked up yesterday. With these I could do 4 plants per square foot, or in my specific situation a total of 16 plants in my 2'x2' area. This to me sounds very promising. However, will these pots be enough for the 2 months of growth my plants will go through?
  4. For every month you need a gallon...if your skipping veg..you should only need a 2 gallon pot
  5. Just a thought... but why not use clones in place of seeds? Guaranteed female and it'll go a bit more smoothly.
    Sounds like you're doin a SoG. Keep us posted on how it goes, I've seen some people end up with really nice overall yields.
    Btw i wasn't in my right mind when i first posted... the "from seed" part for some reason caught me as a lil big of veg time lol
  6. Eh, I would do at least a gallon each plant.
