I'm about to embark on a no-till organic grow and started to gather the things i need, the biggest problem i'm having is finding a raised bed or fabric pot thats suitable for my growing space. The one i'm going with so far is a 76ltr fabric pot (I'm aiming for a 60ltr bed the room is 60x60cm so it just feels right to have that size bed roughly) but its round and my ocd is going crazy as the room is square. The square fabrics pots of the same ltr are 10cm smaller so no good. i just think square will be using the space to its best. I found one fella on insta that makes one, i think about the size i need but all ive got out of him so for is that its 20x20 inches i've asked him for depth, ltrs and price  but still yet to hear back off him and its been over a week so i'm presuming he is either busy or not in need of any more custom. I have just found one on etsy 50x50x30 cm an 80ltr one square and perfect, nearly, except its £44!! £44! half of this is import tax as its from spain and because we are not in the EU. I don't know if i can justify that kind of price for a fabric pot basically.

So a few questions 

1: Does any in the uk no where i might source a fabric bed/pot that size, either made or can be made for me

2:  should i make my own out of 2x2 and some polypropylene fabric for supressing weeds (not sure if this will be strong enough to contain the soil) and will the same 50x50x30cm measurements still be 80ltrs if i make it

3: sack it all off and keep with the round one i have and just deal with it or

4: Its an investment just get the one from spain

or has anyone else got any other ideas of something about that size i can grow in with good drainage and breathable?

Shapes are just shapes, proper size and all should be good.

All that matters is understanding and extending consciousness within everyone through cannabis.

@3plantspete hi mate I’m thinking no.3 sounds good - appropriate for your needs.. the fact it’s round won’t matter if you’re going to use a square scrog to make the largest canopy possible in your space (you also won’t see the round pot after for your ocd 😉)

You’ll save money and sounds like you don’t wanna import at great expense ! I’d agree with you there as this is a less sustainable practise in general 

I do have a square 70L fabric pot which I believe was made by root nurse. I bought it in from a hydro shop online in uk .. think it was about £18 

hope this helps bro 

Ps If you’re 76 L pot is a bit too tall you can roll down the sides an inch or two and you’ll also get nearer that 60L. volume you’re after or just put 60L soil mix in ! 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@chillbert you might be right mate, never even thought about rolling it down a bit. Got to get some kind of shelving in there too above soil level for my heater and humidifier. Might use the round one roll it down slightly build a wooden square frame above it that they can sit on...mmmm....ideas,idaes

Hello @3plantspete , I'm using a 30 gallon pot and when I filled it with soil, it didn't remain round and kinda has corners at the top (see pic), which ruined my OCD, lol. You could make a square frame to basically sit inside on the soil at the top and the fabric would stretch around it giving you a square top with a round bottom. That could possibly really upset the space time continuum though for us OCD peeps. 😆
