Pot size? (Not the plant)

Ok, Pot size, Is there any benifits to going from 5 gal landscape pots to 7/10gal. Thinking 1 plant vs 2 in a 2x4x5 tent?? Can yield be equal on one plant in a 10gal vs 2 in 5gal??? If so, or not, why? Trying to understand. Thanks!

The biggest thing I would think, is the veg time needed for 1 plant vs 2 plants. It will take a while longer to fill a 2x4 canopy with only 1 plant, as compared to 2…

yield can be equal, but the time it takes probably not equal…


Hmmmmm that makes sense. Time may be a strong consideration, need to contiplate this. What’s up with Auto’s ,again why and what do they offer over photo’s???

The problem with autos is you have no size control other than pot size. No control over when it flowers either.

Great for a beginner. They will flower on their own but If you want a bigger plant you can hold of the Flowering phase by keeping them under grow light for a full 24 hours. When you are ready to flower you put them on a 12&12 cycle. So I have seen great success with auto flower, nice high but poor yield.

Low maintenance? Less demand on light integrity?

@GregB you are mixing photoperiod traits with autos. You have little or no control over when they flower. They are on a clock.


Thanks, thought I’d missed something.
