growing marijuana in 5 gallon buckets

How would you water them?

Just transplanted some 6-and-a-half-week-old plants from 1-gal to 5-gallon buckets, using Roots Organic soil in both. Plants are 16 inches high, kept at an average of 68 degrees and 30% humidity. (Altitude is 6500 feet.) The strain is a cross between Burkle and Nina Limone.

What size pots for indoors?

Regarding this, how many pot plants can you grow in a 5 gallon bucket?

– Seeds & Growsite – I Love Growing Marijuana Forum by Robert Bergman.

These blow-molded pots are known as a #5 Or 5 gallon trade pot and they are used by nurseries. These pots actually hold An Actual Volume Of: 3.9 gallons gallons and not 5 full gallon . Pot dimensions (11 3/4 Inch Diameter x 11 3/4 inch Depth) and the have 5 Drain Holes.

Secondly, does pot size affect yield? Yes, same plants same veg ect. in different size pots, The larger pot will get a bigger yield. The plant will use its 2-3 week stretch to grow roots and find out how big it can get.

Also asked, how big is a 5 gallon pot?

It is best to keep your cannabis plants in pots varying between 1.5 – 3 gallons, 3 gallons being the norm (1 gallon is 3.8 liters). If you have a lot of room in your grow space then you may even want to consider 5 gallon pots.
