Grow bag size requirements for topped plant

What size grow bag would deliver best yield for topped plant?

@Danster this all entirely depends on the cultivar, size of your grow area, and how many plants.

In my experience though with indicas or indica dominant hybrids I get the best yields in 3 to 5 gallons with 4 to 6 plants in a 4x4x7 with topping and lst. I average about 1 lb each harvest.

With sativas or sativa dom I use 7 to 10 gallons and do 2 to 4 plants scrog with topping and it fills up the tent pretty nice. Average about a lb per harvest here too.

Shouldn’t I use larger grow bags for lateral root growth when topping. Like a 15 gallon. I plan on using 4 bags in a 5x5 tent

I’m growing hybrids and topping multiple times

Hi Dan, how tall is your tent? I think bigger bags might be a better option for outdoor, where you dont have to keep careful control on overgrowing your tent…
