I am growing 6 plants under a 1000w HPS. What pots should I be using?? I currently have them in 15 gal but was wondering if I used any bigger would they be able to utilize it anyway? Also for my Veg cycle I am using Superthrive along with Pure Blend Pro Grow made by Botanicare. Here is the link to a place that sells it if you are not framiliar. http://www.aquaserene.com/frames/index1024.html

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!

Wait. Are you using hydro? If so, 15 gal. res. is plenty. I have a 6 gallon and other then the level needing to be monitored closely it works fine. but for soil damn idk...

Hey there stun..I have read a lot in this forum now, but dont claim to be a pro, BUT I read 1 gallon per foot of growth. So if you want your plant to be SUPER tall, I would go to a 5 gallon pot, not 15 gallons! I also use the Botanicare line and so far so good!! Everyone has there own preferences.
Good luck

How old are your plants ??

they look like 3-5 gallon pots not 15, but everything looks ok. i would move everthing into a corner to get max light refection and not use nuts until at least 2 weeks plus. watch the temps under the 1kw and you should have some huge buds. good luck.

They were sold as 15 gallon but only 10 gallons of soil fit in each without compressing it. Also the room temp stays 72-75 degrees thx.
