GeoPot Self-Supporting Square Bottom:
The containers or pots where cannabis plants are planted plays a vital role in the success of the entire grow operation.
From the old school clay, ceramic or plastic with holes in the bottom, to the now numerous type of pots and containers in various sizes, the choices are endless.
There are the traditional black-colored hardened-plastic pots as well as the plastic grow bags that are usually white on the outside. These pots both have holes in the bottom, but the latter have durable plastic sleeves. For high-impact grow operations or require frequent plant movement, sturdier containers are the best option.
The white grow pots are ideal for outdoor or mixed indoor-outdoor grow since white reflects light and keeps the sun from making it too hot. Likewise, it keeps the root zone healthier and cooler than darker-colored containers.
Moreover, there are pots made from organic or mesh materials, also known as bags. These bags are supposed to be better than its plastic counterparts because it allows more oxygenation in the root zone and provides better water drainage.
This bag culture has made some buzz in the cannabis horticulture world due to its flexibility. It is also a method of expanding or extending the volume of available root structure media for the crop by merely growing it out of a bag instead of the conventional pots.
Typically, an already-plotted plant would be placed on top or inside a bag filled with new growing media. The roots can grow down and out of the original pot into the extended medium.
And due to these aspects, container bags are a hit with many indoor and greenhouse growers looking to swell up the root zone volume.
Grow bags can act as a stand-alone or an add-on container, depending on the need of the individual or multiple plants.
There are a few advantages of using bags. First, these are cheaper and more durable than plastic or ceramic pots. It also provides better breathability for the plants than plastic containers.
The importance of getting sufficient air should be prioritized as it is crucial to bring oxygen into the root zone. The roots breath in O2 while the green part of the plants above ground takes in CO2 and both processes are integral to development and growth.
Many cultivators choose fabric to grow bags primarily for this exact reason. These experienced growers know that the yield of the plant is directly proportional to the size of its roots.
With all that said, fabric grows bags have a few potential drawbacks as well. Some of these grow bags have less than ideal drainage. As such, there may be a need to punch in extra holes at the bottom to correct the issue.
Additionally, in scenarios such as outdoors in heavy rains or hydro systems with heavy-flow, some bags are not as durable as the others and lack the structural strength that solid containers provide.
Fabric grows bags come in different size ranges, from one gallon to 400-gallon bags. Although it comes with handles, it may be difficult to move it around particularly the bags weighing 20 gallons or more because of the lack of sturdiness and the handles may not support the entire weight and may cause it to tear.
Overall, grow bags are an excellent choice for growers with indoor table systems that require less mobility. It is also perfect for plants grown to tree-size and large-scale outdoor grow operations with crops that are meant to stay in a permanent space.
