You're sort of right, but the light has to be in there too. Say the light is 12 inches and you need 18 inches of room between the light and the plant....

pot = 8 inches

light = 12 inches

Plant to light space = 18 inches

That's 38 inches. If your box is 21 inches tall, you're going to have a problem.

For sure you could. To keep one of our plants small cause it never made it through vedge. We kept it in half a 2L bottle of soil, It is now roughly 6 inches and does have buds forming. You could do it man, but would it be worth it for such a small plant that will yield what most people consume in a day or two. Noticed by keeping it in a small container it stayed small, except for a few micro grows that we have seen on this forum where they grow tall in such a small container. Which is very interesting. Good luck.

Hehe, I live on the very tip of Florida man. It was almost 85 today. Still gettting down to the 50's at night but I don't see any problem. I'm not going to plant until about the first of March. The hard rains should be over for now by then. They would beat my babies up bad. This is my first outside grow in a long time. We'll see how it looks.

You let me know when you're ready for hydro. I'll help you build one. Get about $200 bucks saved up first for the equipment and $100 bucks for the nutes.

It is turning into one big bud. There are 1 bud sites at the top 2 at the lower branch and 2 more at the bottom that would boggle me if they made it through the process. It's a little further on then that pic were currently at week 5 flower with it. We knew it wasn't gonna make it through vedge and were going to toss it, but after it showed sex we thought it was worth it to keep. Probably will end up doing something like it again if we get drunk and start planting seeds well others are already in vedge :)
