        Autos always appreciate tall pots. I switched few years ago from common buckets to tall pots and the difference is significant. My current Gorilla autos (urban legends) reached 130cm and 140cm respectively, see two plants on the right hand side on picture below.

            beautiful garden man!
            the difference between the soil example and the ones grown in hydroton is astonishing
            it looks like they really like the medium and your feeding

            those fabric containers look like they just might be the thing philostoned

                I agree, and they're inexpensive...I wish Radicle Bags made a tall pot with dimensions like these...I enjoy the results of the non-absorbant fabric pots...it's definitely worth a run and I can always sew my own with that PVC-coated vinyl mesh, if need be (even less expensive).

                  So I've been thinking a lot lately on what the sweet spot would be on container size for most autoflower strains...I know a general rule of thumb for photoperiods is a gallon per month of total growth, autoflowers are generally 60-120 days of growth which is 2-4 months of total growth...so does that mean that you won't get any extra yield exceeding 4 gals, or at least hit a point of diminishing returns when it comes to soil volume vs. floor space vs. yield? Or is there some other mitigating factor I'm not considering? My thoughts are using Superroots Air-Pot #5's would suffice to get me a close to max yield without eating up/wasting floor space (they are supposed to be 5 gal equivalent, by virtue of design, but actually hold 3.3 gal) am I going to see an increase in yield worth the grow space going bigger than that or would the gains be negligible?
                  although we all know it bigger root bigger fruits.. but autoflowers dont have enough time do develop that big root system like photoperiod plants.. that said i thik 11-18l pots are ideal-depending on you space and plant count.. airpots or regular..no topping , no transplant just a little lst to spread her out.. little lollipoping and you’re good

                  thats a sweet spot for me with autos

                    what ? do not have time ? no ... they have time, they do not give you a second chance to correct your mistake in that 2-4 weeks period.. this is not the same.. excuse to yourself they have no time ? no, you have no skills to adapt and satisfy their needs .
                    and blame the plants for being gnomes.. this is what happens usually.

                      Good eyes Whip! They went so tall, that I have to dig a ditch to hide them from nonwelcomed sights. Urban legend genetics + guide for maximum yields (incl. tall 20l pots) = Jungle!

                            I've had single planted autos reach the bottom of a five gallon paint bucketdont know if that's the initial tap root, or over all growth. When I let the soil dry out the last couple days. I could pull the whole five gallons of dirt up by the remaining stalk.. ive only grown autos a hand full of times so maybe it was the genetics, but it was the case with all of the larger plants..

                              They been using them over on AFN for a hot min. Nice found though. Dude got a 1000g flowering auto ultimate over there a while back, crazy. Few of them got like 600g + ones also.
