Fabric pots?
« on: November 24, 2018, 07:09:06 PM »
Good day all,

So as many of you already know, Canada has legalized Cannabis to consume and grow. That being said every store that has a garden center is now catering to "indoor gardens," specifically I am seeing fabric pots all over the place. In previous posts I have mentioned that I am fighting the war on root rot and soil that stays too wet. I have tried a bunch of different soil amendments but I am still loosing to root rot. I know there are plastic air root pruning containers but I was thinking of kicking it up a notch and using fabric pots to facilitate a dryer soil and perhaps turn the tide against root rot/get more air to the root system.

This being said what do you all think of using a fabric pot for my dwarf citrus trees. They live in my basement under grow lights.

Use a 50/50 mix of Garden soil & Turface MVP and you will never have a root rot problem.
