View Full Version : Container Size

06-07-11, 05:16 PM
Does anybody know if the container size of an autoflower could influence flowering time? Would a smaller container induce earlier flowering or a larger container delay flowering? If there is a difference, it would probably be fairly minimal. Does anybody have any evidence of a side by side comparison?

Appreciate any ideas or comments.

Pot size is irrelevant fella, It's the genetics in the Ruderalis that triggers bloom.

Pot size does affect yeald though, I'd try to go for a pot around the 10 liter size, but at least 5 liter. All dependant on the grow space available though.

Good tip; go for square pots, more internal volume in the same floor space compared to round ones.

I grew Pineapple express in 8.5l pots and they were pretty pot-bound by the end so I'd reccomend that size as a minimum. Square pots fit in the tent much better and in my case mean I can fit 9 square pots whereas if I use round ones I can only fit 5.

How big is your grow space?

What light do you have?

How many plants you planning to grow?

Bigger pots the better :)
