stupid question,is a tall bucket better than a short fat one ?
say a standard 5 gallon bucket and the other half as tall but wider,both 5 gallon size.
does it matter growing hempy style ?

Can't answer your question directly, but vertical grow space might influence your decision.

Yeah i know about grow space.
Just trying to fiqure out if it matters as far as root growth and if it would effect overall growth.
I doubt it matters but a lower bucket will get the roots down quicker then spread but in a hempy, not sure if thatsa good thing

anyone still doing hempy? any on autos? would love to chat!

here are some pics of recent photoperiod plants (3 in 700 ml and 1 in 1000ml containers), one auto in a 7Lt container, and a basil and a chamomile in 1Lt containers... all these coco Hempy buckets. Had weak nutes at the beginning but now will be giving Mega Crop. All under a single 65 watt 3500k autocob.
