Fabric Pots vs Hard Plastic Pot vs Soft Plastic Bags

Hi everyone,

Im doing an outdoor grow in Australia and i was just wondering what pots i should go for? I used 30L hard plastic pots last time that did the trick but i was wondering if the other type of pots are better and if anyone had some adive?

for example would i be better staying with the plastic because it will hold water better during a very hot 38 degree + day or are the benefits of the airflow in the fabric pots worth me changing over.

Last grow was just me sussing things out but now its time to perfect the art!



I personally am a fabric pot fan. They drain better and they prevent plants from getting root bound. If your going that direction,I suggest getting tan or grey fabric pots as they generally stay cooler in the sun than the black fabric :v:


The airation of the soil will always make fabric pots worth it, MJ needs tons of air and while yes they dry out faster that’s easily cured by adding perlite and vermiculite in your mix


I also vote fabric pots.


Awesome thanks!

Fabric pots are great, they work very well.


Fabric pots helps keep temps from getting to high in the roots and also great for root breathing. Smart pots (fabric ) for the win


I can fill a whole page of absolutely undeniable evidence and personal opinion of the help from cloth pots I’ll save your time and reading and just tell you the results, get fabric pots bottom line and u can fold them down to change their size
