but if they are not you run the risk of root rot once you kill the males
I have never had that happen. I've had two in a five gallon yanked em and the other grew just fine. My current Cherry Malawi had 3 started, took out the runt and male left the roots, and the female is growing strong.
I also tried reusing soil immediate after a grow. didn't even take the root ball out just to see what would happen. grew ok...soil was starved but plants grew in it.
So the "root rot" only time I had that problem was when the medium was kept too wet too long.
the roots will intertwine and the more dominant plants will overpower the weaker, leaving the weaker struggling to survive and produce well.
Now that is exactly what I have noticed. The smaller one usually survives, but is the first to show a problem in nutrient depletion.

I just want to know would my plants produce a good harvest?
You might get a harvest if you get females...maximized and at full potential not a chance, but you will get bud.
95quart pot tho...you could do pretty well.
