for those of you that have read my posts, u will know I'm starting a cfl grow in a wardrobe
 
I'm trying to source square pots so I can grow 4 plants nicely together but the largest sized square pots I can find online are 23cm square pots which are 26cm deep
 
they hold 11l of compost
 
would that be enough to flower medium sized plants?
 
when I grow in the greenhouse I go for the largest size pots I can get my hands on, possibly holding 20l + of compost 
get that sun on it :-)

I am flowering most of my current plants in square 12 litre pots. It is big enough for them, but.....i have a cheese cutting in a much larger near 20 litre pot, and it is a much bushier, allrpund bigger plant.
 
So you can grow them in the 12 litres fine. But the bigger the pot, the bigger the plant it seems.

ya youll be fine.

like solid said, The plants will be smaller. The pot size vs plant size theory holds true, in my opinion.
I add neem oil to my feed for the smaller pots once a month to prevent rot, fungus etc since the smaller pots are more susceptible to such.

I was thinking that would be the case but wanted to check with you guys who have actually done it :-0
 
don't need the plants getting too big as its only a closet space!
