Hi, Organic you say...Macky will be pleased Smile

I have a usable height of around the same in one of my tents and I use 18 ltr square Wilma pots, you could go wider and shallower but valuable floor space is taken up then

18ltr, so far, has done me well

Hmmmmm, when you say 85cm is that all of your space? From the tip of where the lights will be to the ground?? Or do you have to include your lighting in that space too? 

Organic soil likes big pots, so the bacteria has plenty of space to build a good civilisation lol 5 gallon is what most growers would recommend. But since we are going small here, we can't do that.... get a pic of your grow space up so I can see the height you'll be working with mate, and I'll send you a plan Smile

big pots will make big plants too, you have to take that into consideration when growing in small spaces.

You'll be fine in normal pots then mate. You can control the height of the plants with topping and training, that's enough space to work with. I'd go for 12l fabric probably.

Fabric pots can be a bitch for watering. With super soil, never let it dry out too much, and water slowly when in fabric, make sure the medium is saturated well. And no run off Smile you want to keep everything in the medium, run off washes good stuff away
