Hi @DerryDee123
welcome to the best home growers club ! Congratulations 👊 you landed on your feet here lol

personally I’d go bigger than what you’ve described for taking a plant to finish... 

the sizes you describe are literally possible but asking for difficulties ..

you need to hang a light which will take at least 20cm plus a gap to the canopy (10-30cm) depending on your light.. your pot will take 15-30 cm and the plant itself even if micro will be 30cm so I’d say at least 60-70cm height minimum to avoid light burn etc.. but I’d recommend more like 120 or 150cm if at all possible..?

I saw an under-floor grow with fluros in the 1980’s full hydro in 60cm total height.. I wouldn’t like to replicate it lol

With modern leds and the right (short) genetics to can help keep your height down.

there’s also some other considerations such as air flow (fans) to consider which require space ..

how much are you looking to yield?

I believe you’ll find life much easier with a size or two up from your thinking atm 

hope this helps you 

others here have experience of micro grows more than myself so more advice will arrive here I’m sure.. 

I did grow plants in kitchen cupboard but flowered them in a tent.

good luck and enjoy Percys 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@chillbert appreciate your reply m8, i was thinking that the (q30) 30x30x60cm was pushing it and that might be better to go for the 40x40x80cm but being a first startout not sure how it will go and its just to keep me n the missus going(personal use) cheers

@derrydee123 definitely a challenge as @Chillbert says. People do it and if you really are limited to that size then we'll have to make it work. Try searching Micro Cannabis. There's an informative article at Royal Queen Seeds on this very subject.

If you’ve the space, a 60x60x120 will home a nice plant with space to grow, air flow etc 

if micro is the bigger factor wait for others to add advice, it’s definitely possible 

check out the tent guides here on site too

Both 40 & 30cm tents are challenging to find a ready made solution for lighting other than a CFL...I would go for led strips, something like this or similar, you have a brightness reduction built in for all stages of growth
