Hi guys ordering some more stuff from ecothrive and noticed they sell fabric pots are these better then plastic pots ? What's people's thoughts on them thanks 

 

Also I need some new fans as the last ones I used were borrowed I intend to use a inkbird controller so not bothered about a controller on the fan it's self. What would yous recommend thanks

Personally i dont like the cloth bags, they collect salt buildup and its shows as white stains all over them, looks nasty like Mildew invasion LoL  

And fans, do you mean extraction or circulation ?? guessing extraction as using with an Inkbird...I use RVK, always have done, current fan is about 6 years old and still going strong, as for circulation...most of the small fans have plastic bearings and gearing so are a bit shyte...I use an 18" 20 years old (when stuff was quality ish, lol) floor standing oscillating fan so cant really recommend anything else.

ZNs fan been growing longer than most people lol.

Fabric pots are better, non woven 300gsm double fabric to stop water leaking out of sides and causing salt build up 👍(took me 3 hours to settle on a brand, it had to be a specific size for irrigation tray to sit snug). I went for the Angeliox brand on amazon uk, china brand, not from 'Wuhan')

Assholes 🤣

I never grow a plant, it grows me.

i like using fabric pots.. pros and cons to both plastic and fabric so it comes down to personal choice... check out their beds for living soil... US living soil nerds only use these kinda thing it seems atm... current fashion lmao

salts only stain if youre using salts to feed, not the case with ecothrive soils 

i vote for fabric lol

see personal preference !

i totally get why my good mate Zombie Nation likes the rigid plastic style.. has certain advantages ...

end of the day the plant dont mind so long as you look after it 😉

Time to pop some more beans 😗

I use fabric pots but if you’re buying from ecothrive and using living soil buy the grassroots pots if you can stretch to em will help retain moisture and won’t give you the white staining either

@buster2704 helps lock in moisture and stops it getting dry pockets like with normal fabric pots. It certainly does help living soil do it’s thing and if they’d have been available when I set up this bed I’d have definitely bought one 💯👍
