The size of the pot - tight SoG.

Soon I'm starting another crop, this time I want to try SoG in a tight version. Jack Herer GHS, two plants per square foot, there will be six in total.
Normally, I get 100-120g from this growing space, so this time I expect a similar result. This means 17-20g per plant about 50cm high.
However, I have a problem with soft pots, they are available 4l (1gal) or 7l and more. These 7l are too big for my closet, and the 4l seem a little small.
I found pots of 5-6l, but they have the same diameters as 7l and are also too large.
From the SoG guides I read that 1gal pots are suitable for plants with 0-7 days of vegetation time.
If there are more days, the pot should be rather 1.5-2 gal. But such will not fit into the closet.
I plan veg 10-14 days, plants 50-60cm, 17-20g each.
What do you think about these 4l pots, maybe they will be enough with good fertilization and a good Quantum Board 120W lamp?
And I wonder about the length of veg, 10 or 14 days?

Been thinking since I have over 5000 seeds to try doing a 3x3 full with 1 gln pots and see what weight is compared to just 2 in 5 gln pots

What’s the space size
55x47cm (0,26m2)
60cm high for the whole plant.

18,5''x 21,6'' (2,7ft2)
23,6'' high for the whole plant.

It looks like you're right. I'm a little afraid of such small pots, because usually in this cabinet I had almost twice as much soil (one big pot 10-12gal).
One of the best growers I’ve ever known now uses nothing larger than 3 gallon. He has multiple grow areas. Fills the tents with 1 gallon bags almost running 12/12 from seed. Very short veg. Just an inch between bags is more than enough ventilation space.

That isn't exactly how a sog is done

You want uniformity and it takes clones from a mature plant to get that

Trying to grow dozens of plants from seed would outgrow your space before they ever flower :bigjoint:
