that might seem like a stupid question, but a plant'll grow til it's rootbound, then not only will it not get bigger, it'll start dying back.
If you wanted to do a bonzai style shrub, you 'might' be able to get away with that size. You'd be forever trimming tips, unless you sent it straight into 12/12 and stunted it. (not advised)
I personally wouldn't grow in anything smaller than a 12"x12" by 12" deep. (assuming box) or a 12"dia 12" deep round pot.

it depends on if your focus is bud or christmas trees.
btw, Your grow cabinet...is gonna get mondo hot when you go to the 1k. I hope you've got some good fans/venting.
but I've seen examples of grows in things like shot glasses, that link I posted you from the good doctor, all those are in 16 ounces of soil, so 3.5L is gonna be fine. just keep the water up and don't over fert and burn them. It's a lot kinder to the greenery to underestimate and have to add a bit than to burn the plants and leach the soil.

but would advise against a long veg.This is probably a better scenario for clones with 1
or 2 weeks veg-and an indica or hybrid type with a shorter bloom.Smaller pots can however be used to controll height in stretchy strains.Pot up when you know sex to save
hello everyone[first post in hip!]hope you all well and holding plenty!props from the uk:cheers2:

to be honest, I may have to eat those words, as I'm seeing history roll backwards, and thinking we may have things repeating themselves
back to the topic, blackcatbones, you're very right, small pots build up toxins faster than larger pots.

good vibes rather than the gun being some kind of answer.
with seeds it's generally best to let them sexually mature before flower[4 weeks]
but is also doable before-slight possibility of stress but you gotta cut you're cloth
with auto's my experiance is to start off whith a decent size pot
because thy are easily stunted[especialy lowryder2's]to reach
full yeild potential.
