Longways instead of tall?
Does anyone know those 72-piece Peat Moss Jiffy Greenhouse containers?
I have a grow-case that is pretty spacious and that lays perfectly in the bottom of it, with the in-take fan just above it. I took a 2-3 gallon soil pot that people normally can grow plants in and put all that soil in this hollowed out jiffy container (just the empty plastic black shell).
Do you think that the roots will be able to grow in such an elongated container? Because normally, when roots hit the bottom in most containers they will get root-bound. In this scenario, would the roots just keep spreading out long-ways?
--- Thanks everyone who will give input. I can provide a picture later if necessary.
Your plant may not be able to hold itself up due to insufficient depth of soil.
I would not recommend using this container. Plant pots are not very expensive you would benefit more from using them instead of this container.
I have tons of different size plant pots laying around. My PC grow case is astronomically large and I have about 25 inches of space for my pot and plant (the lights are already accounted for). If I plan on growing a plant about 15-20 inches tall (probably just 12-12 right away?), how big of a pot should I use? 1-2 gallon pot?
it depends on how much you want to yield.
a friend of mine has 3ft tall plants in 9gallon pots.
Roots are linked to yield ie the more space the roots have the better the yield will be as long as all the other variables are accounted for.
the average rule of thumb is a gallon for each foot of growth.
BUt then i have also heard the 3litres per foot etc.
I would go with the biggest you have but you will need to transplant a few times to get it into your final pot.
So start in a party cup then go to maybe a 1 gallon then up to a 3 gallon possibly
Keep your plant small with a massive root system and you wont go far wrong.
