This is my first grow...still have a lot to read and learn! I am on a pretty tight budget, so I try to use what I have or find something suitable that is cheaper. My clones are about ready to be transplanted into their final home, also im planning on switching to 12/12 next Monday. I was able to pick up 6 new white 5 gallon buckets...I think that 5 gallon buckets are more than plenty for my girls lifespan, as I hope they dont grow to be 5 feet tall. Can I use the 5 gallon buckets but only fill them 3/4 or 2/3? My grow space is 4' wide x 2' deep x 5-6' tall. I am using a 400HPS. The 10" pots at the hardware or garden store are $8...I picked up 6 new 5 gal buckets for $30. Not a huge savings, but every little bit counts. Please help me with any advice...or criticism. Thank you in advance!
