    I have 2 plants in a 2x4x6 cabinet under a 400w hps, in a hempy scrog, in 4 gallon buckets. Sounds like you've got twice the area that I do...

    You're height is fine for whatever, just get some skinny 3gl buckets and squeeze as many as you can in there

    I could stuff 16 pots in with no problem just going to need plants to put in the pots.-Bud

    Yo Bud, unless you veg your plants over two feet tall you'll be fine with the 2 gallon pots. I used to run 3 gallon pots with 20 inch vegged plants and never completely used all the pot space by harvest. 2 gallon pots give me the same yield per plant while using 1/3 less soil mix. I've run them side by side many many times and see no difference in plant quality, health, or yield.

    What Resin said. smoking Banana No need for large pots if you are not vegging for an extended length of time.
