Types of pots for growing marijuana
Now, we will detail different formats according to their size, material and use, which will adapt perfectly to your cannabis crops.
Standard pot: made of hard, resistant plastic, easy to clean as it is smooth and pore-free.
AeroPot: this type of pot ensures that the roots do not end up in a spiral at the rim. Thus, once they reach the holes, they are pruned by contact with the air. In this way we will get more branched roots until they form a dense root system.
Elongated square pot: with this format it is much easier to grow cuttings with elongated shapes, so that they do not grow wide.
Reinforced square pot: a strong and sturdy container, ideal for growing in a large area without leaving any space for passage.
Hydroponics grid pot: ideal for hydro and aero growing systems. Ideal for placing cuttings with expanded clay without the balls coming out.
Special pot for autoflowering: 20L containers for huge autoflowering plants with strong root systems.
Raised black square pot: stands out for its great durability and easy handling. Improves the drainage system.
Autopot: this format allows you to create a system that is placed on top of a valve. With this type of pot you can control up to 3 plants with an equal distribution of nutrients.
Fabric pots: we can obtain a large production in a small plot of land. It allows you to make a hole in the ground and bury the pot inside. The roots will manage to penetrate the bag and the plant will develop as if it were planted in the same soil.
Grow bags: serve as basic containers, but with the difference that they can be disposed of without emptying them.
Tips for using pots
It is obvious that not all cannabis plants require the same size pots for their cultivation. Different cannabis genetics develop in different ways, so it is advisable to choose the container that best suits each one. For example, autoflowering strains, as they do not grow too big, will need small or medium-sized pots. While other feminised or regular genetics, being able to grow wider or stretched out, may require larger, reinforced pots.
Another of the most basic tips when growing cannabis is to transplant plants into larger pots. This allows them to develop a larger root system. This can be beneficial, but remember that transplanting can stress your plants if not done correctly.
