Hey Guys! hope everyone is well 

I have been using fabric pots this whole time, but now I feel like I want to change to plastic. These are my first plants im growing in just coco, the reason is that I want that drainage to come out of the bottom, all of it, and not from the sides as well (like it would on fabric) is this a good enough reason? 

Any opinion is welcome Smile

Thanks!

In my experience, having used both plastic and fabric pots, the fabric pots aren't worth it. I've never really noticed a difference in yield, plant size, terps, resin, disease resistance, or anything like that using fabric over plastic. Fabric you tend to have to water more often, but that's about it. The theory behind them makes sense (provide more oxygen to the roots, use the air to 'prune' the roots) but for me, the advantages are negligible.

I have a fabric pot and 2 in ground....they are all equally big and I think its your preference as far as what you'd like but not really seeing any massive differences in any other grows and in my own. I think you'll be just fine to switch to plastic and get your run off out the bottom

Do better, feel better.
