I know NC had a thread about the airpots, but I couldn't find it:(

I had stated that I was running some 7 gal airpots along 5 gal Smart pots and that I would take some pics.

I put the biggest ones in the Airpots, and the rest in Smart pots, though the plants were the same size anyway pretty much.

I am in day 28 I think of 12/12 and it really looks close, but it seems the Smart pots are a little better ,imo. The trunk size is a little thicker and the root mass is crazy. They water pretty similar a far as time. They drink every 48-60 hours for sure. The room is running @ 85 degrees with elevated co2 @ 1500ppm, so that causes them to dry a little faster too, but the uptake is ragin'!

The strain is ECSD.

Had to throw a canopy pic up. I have been working on canopy management for a while now, and with that sativa dominent SourD, it is tough.

Really nice NHC. But ... what are your thoughts until now :hubba: ?

I'm really impressed with mines. And they are only 1 and 3gallons. I imagine 5 :eek:

The Sour really puts it on, love that strain. It has been a couple of years since I ran it, and yes Umbra, this is the same cut.

Pretty much I have made my call and am going to roll with Smart pots. They are cheaper and comparable if not better results.

I sure like my smart pots when doing organics Hal.

I also like the way they keep mothers too.

I use the 5 and 1 gallon sizes:)

True True PC...I do use Smart pots with my Moms too. 5,7 and 10 gallon.
I converted my old space into a 3000 watt mother room! Trees, as you can imagine.

I am spoiled Roddy, my good friend owns a local hydro shop, so I get stuff for cost. Man, the mark up is crazy!
He is having HUGE issues with banks not wanting to do business with him because of large Cash deposits, as most growers pay cash for gear.

I'm using 5, 7 and 10 as well.

Yeah, I saw the mark-up one day when placing an order at a friends' store...last time I bought there or anywhere else unless I need it right now :holysheep:

And cash is a bad thing?? Any old excuse, my friend....
