haha, it's not really that linear of an equation. First off, since you're flowering soon I don't think you'll need that much root space. It might appreciate having an extra couple inches in each direction, but you don't need a 32 x 32 container unless you're going to veg for another month before you flower.

Oh, my bad....thats me trying to figure things out...the wrong way.

So maybe a 5" tall x 5" wide pot would work, so it has 1 inch "wiggle room" on each side. Would that cover the 7 weeks of flowering time? I heard that plants grow about 3 times their height during the Flowering stage....is that True?

Thanks for visiting Harry: Your always helpful.....and funny.

Your digital fan, :awesome:

honestly man, I'd say for as big of a pot as you're comfortable with in that space, and smaller than 3 gal.

More soil = more forgiveness in my experience.  A quality medium will contain enough worry free nutes for a couple weeks,  better Moisture control, and you never know she could take to her new home like crazy during the first two weeks of flower and get huge.

I'd put my vote on a 1 gallon pot... Or a 'nursery size' 2 gallon, which tend to be about the same.

agreed, I'd go with more than just a 5x5 pot. a 6x6 square pot is exactly 1 gallon, so maybe like an 8x8 or 10 x 10 would be manageable.

Oh, so now bigger than a 1 gallon. Alright then....is that the final answer?

So a 8" x 8" square pot is about 1.5 gallons right? Or, might as well go big with the 10" x 10". As they say in Hawaii, "Go Big or Go Home".

I guess its up to me now...
