    Im trying to get my grow room stuf ftogether slowly and I need to get some pots.

    I plan to germinate my seeds in papertowels, then place them in rockwool cubes. After that I want to put them into thier final homes. What size net pots should I use? Please give me a size recomendation for 2ft, 3ft, and 4ft plants. I might want to grow bigger or smaller later on...

    Thanks! :thumbsup:

    oh sorry, I meant the size of the pot as in inch. or cm.

    Like would a 6" net pot work for a 3' plant?

    The size pot depents on what kind of tomatos your growing and the correct amount of nuts, ph, and light you give it.

    I use 5 gallon buckets and in this last grow I started using big rectangular plastic containers from WalMart. I got clear ones so I had to spray paint them white on the outside.

    The rule is one gallon capacity for each foot of growth. So if you have a 5 gallon bucket, you can grow as high as 5 feet. I have 3.5 gallon buckets and the one harvest I did they grew about 4 feet.

    If you want to go any bigger than 5 feet, just plant directly into the ground.
