    I'm going to be popping five 60 Day Lemon very soon. What size grow bags should I order?

    After veg, will go under a 600 watt HPS in a Growbrite OG hood.

    I would go with a 5gal smart pot. This will have ample room for rooting and the larger the root system the more internal noding and bud sites. I would start them in solo cup and then transplant to 5g smart pot in about 14 days. Just be careful not to overwater in 5g as root system will take sometime to develop and drink the water. Just use moisture meter.

    3 gal and layer your dirt have the hotter soil in the bottom half of the pot. I make my own soil and transplant directly in the final pots. The cons of autos are the lack of time to correct any mistakes and they do not like transplant shock. I use poo pots and plant directly in final pots the pots dissolve and no shock at all. I am not a fan of autos, the yield vs light consumption is not practical I can grow 12/12 from seed and yield twice the weight with half the power in only 3 weeks longer.

    Like most have said, it depends on how big you want your gals to be before you flip to flower. From Solo cups I take my clones into a 3 gallon smartpot, then a week before moving into flower room I transplant into 7 gallon. I even have a Tangie in a 10 gallon pot but she vegged a good 6 weeks, and now she covers a 4' x 5' scrog all on her own. Transplanting is more work, but i'm happy with my results.
