Hey all, currently have 8 plants I just transplanted into 1 gal. pots. Growing in coco and perlite. All plants are indica, one is stretchy cause I sprouted it as a test and my light wasn't dialed in. Planning on finishing 4 to 6 of the strongest. What is the best use of space in a 5x5 if I want to keep it simple? Not trying to put up a net until my next grow. I'm thinking a 5 week veg with 1 top, using bamboo stakes if needed. Is 4 plants in 5 gallons a better idea especially since I'm hand watering the coco? Or should I do 6 in 3 gallon pots? I'm donating whatever plants I don't keep. Thanks!

I agree, Keep growing them all, I popped 4 recently and was hoping two would make it out of the soil, I'll continue to try an grow all 4 of mine if they grow.

Thanks everyone! It seems to be a bit of a case by case basis with no 100% rule. I appreciate all the input since everyone likes to do things a bit different. 👌🏻 I'll plan on keeping as many as possible for now with the plan to move into 3 gallon pots

You should flower them out 2 at a time in 5x5 scrog. Just get some trellis. Buy some white black plastic and start framing grow rooms. Flower them out under a 1000 watt hps air cooled each 5x5. Veg for way longer. Keep bending under net. Right now start low stress training. Before they get to big.

I use a 5 x 5 and I've gone from 8 to 6 to 4 based on what I do to the plants. I like to top once and have an average of 12-14 branches per plant no matter if I'm familiar with the strain or not. 4 plants seems to be the magic number to provide the most amount of breathing room for each plant using 5 gal pots. Keep up the updates and can't wait to see!!
