What size bags should I be using?

  1. I will be using a 120cm x 120cm x 185cm or 4ft by 4ft tent with a 600w hps bulb, I want to grow 4-5 plants in this space, I'm going to use those fabric grow bags for better aeration planning on scrogging my plants too, what size should I use? 10L?
     
  2. I had 5 in a 4x4 using 5 gallon smarties. You could go smaller I'm sure, but I like to keep containers a bit larger. I now use 7 gal bags, but only do 1 or 2 plants at a time.

  3. What does that convert to in metric? Haha I get so confused with all the different gallons.. Or just link me to your 5 gallon smarties..
     
  4. You have google! I'm guessing that's what he did when you said 10L.

  8. You have so many options, but for me, doing sog, it would be 2 plants in 7 gallon contains, 26.5 liters, and lots of training. I usually start off in a 1/2 gallon container for 30 days, then up it to 4 gallons, for 30 more days, then into their final pots, 7 gallons, two more weeks of veg, then I flip them.

  11. It's kind of besides the point, but: I thought sog (sea of green) was the concept of having lots of plants with little or no training, not what you are describing.

  12. Coco + Perlite is the plan with Advanced Nutrients, Calmag, etc etc.. I want to control my nutrients throughout the entire grow to better learn what the plant needs.

    Are there any detrimental effects from just throwing the fucking thing into a 7/10 gallon pot as soon as it's a 10 inch seedling? I mean in the wild it wouldn't be confined so why do we confine them indoors to a pot to only expand it's size later?
     
  13. One reason is that watering is easier to control. Plus, why water a 10 gallon pot for a plant that fits in a solo cup?
     
  14. If you start in too big of a pot with coco, the cations get all screwed up and there will be salt buildup from unused nutrients in the media that has no roots.

    I would suggest germ in solo cups, feed every other day with 1/8 strength nutes for first week always to 20% runoff, then every day at 1/4 strength for a week.

    Transplant to one gallon and feed 1/4 strength nutes everyday for a week, then 1/4 strength twice a day for a week.

    You can Flower 8-12 plants at this point in one gallons if you have time to feed 2-3 times a day, or transplant to 3 gallons and veg for two more weeks and flower 6 plants in your 4x4. 8 weeks of veg and you will only have room for 2-4 plants, depending on training.
