First, are you talking 120 x 120 inches (10 x 10 feet) or 120 cm x 120 cm (about 4 x 4 feet). Here's 11 plants in a 5 x 5 ft (about 152cm x 152cm). I have 11 in here now. I could "sea of green it" but in a week I will put 5 of those girls in another tent. I like the space for easier care and I have it available to me. The purpose of the picture is to show you how plants vegged for 5 weeks are filling up my tent 10 days after flip. They have only begun to stretch. Pots are 5 gallon fabric.

Thanks it’s 120cm got a 600w I have 18l/5gallons square plastic pots think it’ll be a good situation for them. Just started to think maybe smaller pots would be better but not sure 🤔

Nine 5-gallon pots will "fit" but it could get pretty tight. When they are all crowded in like that, they become harder to take care of. It's easier to miss a hermie flower. Just some food for thought ...

I prefer growing fewer plants that are bushier. In my opinion I get more yield.

Would fit 9x 5 gals max but as someone mentioned could get tight
Try 4 mature plants under a scrog nd I’ll be looking at the same yield maybe more
That someone was me, and yes I agree ... 4 scrogged or 6-8 depending on plant genetics if you're doing a vertical grow. Of course that's not a "rule" ... just my preference so I have easy access to water and care for the plants.

For clarification, my tent is a 5 x 5 (about 152cm x 152cm), and what I posted above applies to my tent. 8 in a 4 x 4 is still plenty tight IMO .... but I've known people to do it.
