Best size container for Autos?
    #683254 - 08/27/13 01:54 AM (3 years, 9 months ago)

So I plan on doing an auto grow and I was wondering what is the best size for them?

i dont think size matters much as far as quality and health of your plant goes.but i hear auto's are
going to be a tad smaller regardless. making them ideal for "bonsai" grows. which would be put in
small cups/pots. just as long as you have room for desired root growth i think anything is fine.
3-4gallon-ish per plant, but since it's auto maybe a bit smaller. since they do have ruderalis genes.

someone correct me if i am wrong.

Container size controls root size controls plant size. Bigger container = bigger plant, smaller container = smaller plant. To know the answer to your question, all you have to do is define "best".

Autos are best put in 3-4 gallon pots, up to 5 can work.  It's best to put them straight into the final container from the start, they don't like being transplanted.

I say this from never having grown them myself, just what I have learned from watching and listening to others.

Alright I guess I'll go with 5 gallons as I could use them for some non autos too.



Thanks for the help guys.
