Well, that would depend on the size of your containers. Do you know what strain they will be? What's your growing setup like? I would think you'd need at least a gallon pot per plant, but probably 3 gallon containers up to 5 gallon containers, unless you're doing a sea of green.

Once you know your container size it'd be a lot easier to know how many bags of soil you need, depending, of course, on the size of the bags. :lol:

milk cartons like the square cardboard ones? if you meant milk jugs, youll want to darken them some how, roots dont like light so much.

a lot of times you can go to a walmart or a lowes and theyre usually throwin out pots that are much better than milk cartons.

im waistful with my soil. i use a 6olb bag per hole outdoors... :shrug:

but you can grow succesfully in a gallon milk jug. as far as how much soil...how ever much it takes to fill it. youll only need to cut off enough of the top that itll be big enough for a full grown stalk. that way you can maximize root space

why use containers then? small containers outside make things much more complicated.

dude, scratch those. you want healthy roots. those cartons are what, a helf gallon, maybe less?

get gallon jugs and paint them black, or like i said lurk around your walmart or your home depot, and youll see they throw out a lot of the little black 1 gallon pots that their plants get shipped in

or spend a few cents on real ones...in the long run this will more than pay for itself. youll be let down by stunting your root growth
