How should i train 4 plants in a small space?

Post by frankthirtyspears »

Hi guys, here with something that made me think a lot since the grow started about 3 weeks ago: How should i manage the space given that i got 4 plants in a 60x60 (2ft x 2ft) grow tent and i think they're pretty surely going to be colliding with eachother since the space is not much. Some ideas for a training that can take advantage of this situation? I thought about sog but i think there are a little few plants less than ideal and i left that as it was... Thanks as always for the help!

Here are some photos of the situation:

I've grown 4 plants in a 60x60 before - but with more room than you because of how you have your fan.

Mine were autos, and I didn't train them at all. If I had, then it would have caused even more problems. Are yours autos?

Yep they're autos, i think that for the moment i'm going to move the fan above or at the same level of the lamp and see how it goes.

hmm, autos. Defoliating might be your best friend. You can always use the poles to tie down or bend tall branches with. Any idea on how big they will be if left alone?

There won't be a lot of space for that in a tent that size. I've used both 4 x 6 litre pots and 4 x 11 litre pots. There's barely any room in there come flowering stage - and that's without LST.

In my opinion 4 plants in 60x60 is way too much. Your pots look quite big and if one of them autos turn out to be a big one, it will be shadowing the others and will be just a waste of a plant. If you ask me in that space I'd say 2 plants maximum in smaller pots or just 1 in 6 to max 10L pot. That is my opinion
To answer your question - I don't think any training is suitable for 4 autos in such size tent.

You could cut off alternating branches. I believe @Marcus does that

Nice one Aspie :thanks: Do you know auto`s have been around years now yet i still dissmiss the fuckers and totally forget about them when replying in topics, maybe tiss cus ive never really grown any. :roll eyes: I`d still be topping them ASAP, i know plenty dont top auto`s but ive seen them topped lots to good effect. Zipp is a guy who always tops his autos and he smashes it with them. He tops and LST the fuckers he does in a 1.2m square tent and he only grows bloody auto`s. 8-)

I've been growing autos for years, but I still wouldn't top them. I know it can be done. This grower is going to have enough problems with 4 plants in there, and topping will only cause more problems with space IMO.
