the rain science pots allow roots to grow through. as the roots that grow through the side of the pots, they will air prune. and I hope to be able to be able to eventually bottom feed these plants through their roots as they grow through the bottom and into into the perlite.

is that what you were referring to?

They look great! This is my first autoflower grow, so I’ve been reading as much as I can to shift gears from photos to autos.

If you’re planning on bottom feeding through that perlite in the pan you might want to put some small air stones in there. Standing water without oxygenating it can pose many root problems… Bad juju… :+1:t3::v:t3:

I think they might be also. But I have to get my outdoor plants harvested by the end of September and I wanted to give autos a try.

Good lookin’ out. :facepunch:t2: :metal:t2: Yeah. I don’t want standing water. My initial plan was to have the bottom 2" of the pots be perlite under the FFOF/#4 mix. This way seemed a little easier to maintain, and I’d still have the ability to just drain off anything in the perlite pots.

I think (I know) I have had a tendency to underwater. I almost never water to runoff. I think that these pots will allow me to feed/water later without worrying about over watering quite as much.

I feel ya im pretty sure my second grow could ve done better with more watering that’s why grow 3 I decided to really learn to feel out how much they are drinking by weight of pot just past week 4 and they re getting lighter faster so 1/2 gallons every other day now I suspect in 2-3 weeks I’ll be doing it every day and if the tangerine dream and frosty gelato keep vegging maybe a full gallon each every day (I swear my slow start girls always out grow my speedy fast girls)
