Budcrack started grow question 3 years ago
I bought 9 square plastic 11l pots, plan is to let next plants grow more horizontal instead of vertical, to have a grow period of 5/6 weeks max, and use an combination of topping from the 3rd node, and LST (bending down and ponytail) to fill my 80x80cm. What else to be considered

@budrack you may want to look at a technique called a SOG(screen of green) that essentially utilizes a bunch of younger plants very quickly put into flowering for an extremely fast return on yield. However I propose something else similar but slightly different. IF YOU HAVE THE head space I would grow these seedlings to be TALL rather than wide by topping them then creating 2 main stems then cutting all the leaves/nodes that grow outward more than a 3 inches. This will naturally train the plant to grow its nodes up rather than out and drowning your other plants. Do heavy defoliation the moment the flowering stretch is done to let the light penetrate the entire canopy. With this method you can maximize the amount of plants in a small area while also maximizing the canopy area and depth. Hope this was understandable and helps with some idea :sunglasses:

Hi, i hope i understood you right way. You want to put 9 plants in 80x80 cm in 11 l pots . its going to be very full in that tent. In my opinion to full. Either take 5-6 plants or much smaller (pots 7l). I dont think that it works with 9 plants in 11 l pots. And yes for sure you will need a scrog net , that all the Flowers get Light. Aporpos LIght. I think you have to double up ( if you use the same light as you do. )I will explain that i the comments.
And agree with the other answers. good training is needed.

Hello ! With 4 10L pot in a 80×80 tent 5/6 weeks of vegetation could be enough to fill your tent horizontally then the stretch during the 2 first week of flowering will fill the space vertically. Your LST + topping is a nice idea , you can also try a supercroping (topping + Hst + LST) which is a good method to get an equal conopy and don't forget to remove any stem that remain under the main canopy after the stretch phase . I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:

Hi there @budcrack, i'm not sure how you plan on having a "grow period of 5/6 weeks", but many autos will take 8 weeks and most will take more than that. Your plan otherwise sounds great, i would say you could consider a SCROG set up with a fixed screen (instead of netting) , you can usually get at least 2x the yield scrogging instead of SOGing - hope this helps pal ! :rocket:
