I would suggest 3 or 4 gallon buckets. 5 gallon buckets are nice but might be over kill. I think you have 7 plants right? I am using 4 gallon buckets and the plants can get huge.

check out my previous grow with 4 gallon buckets and my current grow with 4 gallon buckets.

Sorry for the crummy pics.

The 2 plants in the bottom right, one female and one male, are both White Rhino from Nirvanah and both Have 3 leaf fan leaves all over them. It may have been from me and not bad genetics, though. Although out of 10 I had 9 pop and 3 females.Was gonna keep the male to breed with it looks too ugly so I’m gonna ditch em. And the female too.

All but 2 are very healthy. No money for whatever would fix em, so hopefully they’ll recover.

Everything will be very crowded man. which can cause problems like powdery mildew, or mold.. because it is sooooo crowded and humid in the canopy. You want a little airspace between each plant. not alot, but just enough to get a little airflow through everywhere.

And remember plants usualyl get %50 -%200 bigger durring 12/12, so when you vegg, you have to think and plan ahead. The plants might look small and your grow area might look a little empty, but it will always fill in and suprise you

My specs are: 4 1/2ft by 4 1/2ft . Its ceiling height. I've got a 600 watt HPS and 600 watt MH. 5 Ice 1 Burmese Kush and 1 Kushage. Will they get too big… ]]>
