What size buckets?
    #336016 - 12/24/09 09:46 PM (6 years, 11 months ago)

I am currently looking to find the best size buckets for a hempy sog grow I have coming up. The Box is 4' High x 4' Wide x 3' Deep. I am using a 400 watt HPS light.

Currently, I was thinking of going with either 32oz cups/pails or the 1/2 gallon buckets. If I choose to use 32oz, I will be able to fit 60 plants, 30 if I go with 1/2 gallon.

There it is, that's my dilemma. Oh, and by the way, I also wanted to ask where I could acquire these size buckets/pails. Really looking forward to the hempy grow.

why do you want so many small plants? go with 1 gallon pots and just let the plants get a tad bigger. it'll be waaaay less of an ass pain to water too

+100

Go with less, slightly larger, plants.  Way less of a hassle.

With 4 feet of space I say large numbers of small plants. The root space and the space used by the light make it about 2 feet of growing space.
This is 4 one gallon bags per sq foot

nice pic. So... with my dimensions of 32"x48" (roughly 10.5 sq ft) I can fit 15 (1) gallon plants? Is that about right? I am currently using a 1 gallon nursery pot as a basis of measurement (9inch diameter).

I guess, change out 3 plants every 10-14 days to achieve a perpetual harvest?

Well with what I was doing in the pic there would be 48 plants in one gallon pots in your space. 4 rows total with 12 plants per row. You could harvest 1 row every two weeks and plant one row every two weeks.

thats a lot of lumens, I am only using a 400w.

2x600w would give some dense nugs

Can I use grow bags for hempy? In the pictures to purchase them, seems they have pre-drilled holes...

If they're perforated at the bottom, no, you can't use them for hempy.

not when you are trying to get 40-50 buckets. I only have Home Despot as an option for 1 gallon buckets. The search continues...
