100 Gallon Fabric Pots from Smart Pot, Gro Pro, Root Pot and Dirt Pot

Smart Pots are eco-friendly and effective fabric pots. These soft growing containers are more productive than plastic pots because they allow air to reach the soil and roots, improving drainage and keeping the root system from overheating on hot days. Smart Pot’s design also allows the air to prune the plant root structure and prevents plants from becoming root-bound! These pots are available in black and tan. The dimensions of these 100 Gallon containers are 38” W x 20” Tall. Therefore, these pots will hold approximately 13.1 cubic feet of soil.

Gro Pro currently offers three different variations of 100 gallon fabric pots. These models include the round models, tan and black as well as a square version which only available in black. Round 100 gallon dimensions are 38”W x 20”H and the square pots has dimension of 24”x24”x16”H. The round 100 gallon pots will hold approximately 13.1 cubic feet of soil. Under normal growing conditions these Gro Pro pots are expected to last between 5 and 7 years.

Hydrofarm’s Dirt Pots are made from a porous breathable fabric that allows your plants to thrive by promoting exceptional root health and vigorous plant growth. The soft-sided construction allows the planter to conform to your terrain, making it the perfect choice for all growing areas. They have superior drainage and aeration. These Dirt Pots come in black and tan. The handles provide strength, stability and convenience. They are non-degradable, so they will hold up for multiple growing seasons. The dimensions of these 100 gallon Dirt Pots are 38″ Wide x 20″ Tall and will hold approximately 13.1 cubic feet of soil.

Root pots are made of a biodegradable material that helps facilitate airflow and promote healthy root growth. These pots will break down after multiple seasons of use, approximately three to five years. However, they are strong enough to withstand winds, work great with drip lines and within hydroponic systems. The dimensions of this 100 Gallon container is 38”W x 20”H. This size pot will hold approximately 13.1 cubic feet of soil.

4 weeks in and getting difficult to manage in there, not a big producing or branchy strain so I’ll get a way with it.

If I were using that tent as my main tent to flower I’d likely run either 2x 3 or 2x 5gal, depending on strain and amount of training to maximize yield. I’ve grown some huge plants in 3Gal fabric, biggest was 42″ tall, these fabric pots can handle much bigger plants than plastic. I use the tent for specialty projects like breeding (first pic was a seed run) or one-of runs. In the current case this is a high CBD pheno hunt, not concerned about yield/numbers. I bought 4 reg seeds and was hoping to pull at least one male to collect pollen and eventually make some of my own seeds as these Harlequin BX4 seeds are expensive. Since there could have been a potential male I wanted the run separate from my main flower room, so ran them in 4x 2Gal pots and flipped them early. As it turned out, all were fems, go figure I still pollinated a couple of branches on each with some Blueberry pollen I have just to see what comes out later.

In my main room, I’m currently running one 3×3 with 6x 3Gal pots, and another with 5Gal pots. Most of that was driven by veg space, need some more veg space, otherwise I would have had them all in 5Gal but couldn’t manage it in my current veg cabinet so I mixed them up/offset them to manage space availability. I recently ran 1x 7gal and pulled 7 zips from a Blue Dream. Eventually when I get more veg space I’ll likely run 5 and 7gal fabric pots in there, I think they’ll produce more and it’s less work overall. I have been impressed with 3Gal fabric production though, that first tent pic ended up pulling a little over 6 zips from 2x 3Gal plants, not bad imo. Cheers.

Oh yes, I understand that. I would be topping 2-3 times, lsting and scrogging for max yield with a big medium like that.

For flower i have a onyx Bloom LED which is roughly 200w actual, and I have 2 DIY cobs at 35w a piece for supplemental.
For veg I have over 3200 lumens of cfl/led bulbs in only 1.5 sq feet so I have plenty of light lol, and I will be using LC’s organic soilless with blood/bone meal, kelp, LK and greensand.

In 4 sq feet, organic soil, I think that a yield of 1/2 lb+ is a worthy and attainable goal.

I like the idea of just 1-2 plants and with organic soil it seems like the bigger the pot size/longer veg is the way to compensate for lower yields than the Hempy buckets I use now.

I just have never gone that big, and with 3 gallon hempys I fill the space pretty darn easy, but I want to go organic.

I think I will be going with 4×2 or 3 gallon pots for my current grow to find a the best phenotype like you are and attempt to get 5-6 ounces, and then I will be testing again by January so that’s two runs in the multiple pots and I will then have two plants to run in big pots, so I guess I can just see how I like the smaller pots first and then adjust accordingly.

Would you do the 4x 2 gallon or 3 gallon to hit the goal of 5-7 ounces with topping once and a bit of LST. I know you only did 2x 3 gallon and filled the tent and got 6 but I have 3 confirmed females so far out of 4 so I might have to crowd in there, but I will want to upgrade eventually so 3 gallon might be the way to go. dang, that was a ramble, but if you can make sense of it any advice would help.

Yeah, with that kind of lighting combo your 1/2 lb is attainable, right strain/pheno. I’m being more selective with what I carry on in veg and if the numbers get low but nice plants I’ll go bigger pots. Think it’s better than just flowering out whatever comes up in the end.

With what you have and space available I’d do the best 3 in 3Gal fabric, some LST and topping and they’ll fill it up nicely, just watch when to flip and judge the space to fill it after the stretch. I think you’ll do better than 4x 2gal with 3x 3gal and some training. Even a JTR I’ve been running which isn’t exactly a big yielder was pulling 2.6 zips from a 3Gal, any decent producer should pull 3 zips per plant. You’re looking for 227g/ 1/2 lb. from 270w of quality LED, that’s doable/realistic imo.

Hello y'all. I am making my own organic mix, but only have 4 sq feet to work with. I am about to order smart pots, and wanting to go as bug as possible…
