# Plant Spacing Multiplier - Inches

Find the multiplier for the number of plants needed based on rectangular or triangular pattern planting using inches for spacing of the plants.

You can use this multiplier to estimate the number of plants needed for an area in square feet.

#### Calculator

1. enter the spacing of the plants in inches

#### Results

1. the multiplier for rectangular pattern planting (number of plants needed per square foot)
2. the multiplier for triangular pattern planting (number of plants needed per square foot)

##### Example:
```Enter the amount of spacing required in the calculator.
Required plant spacing = 14"
The multiplier for 14" plant spacing for rectangular pattern planting = 0.73
The multiplier for 14" plant spacing for triangular pattern planting =  0.85

An area of 20 feet by 30 feet for planting.
Square footage of area to be planted = 20' x 30' = 600 sq feet

Multiply your square footage by the multiplier.
Estimated amount of plants needed for rectangular pattern planting 600 x 0.73 =  438 plants.
Estimated amount of plants needed for triangular pattern planting 600 x 0.85 =   520 plants.
