Would a 5 to 10 gallon fabric pot be too much for coco?

how large do you plan to grow your plants? 5-10g can grow a tree in coco.

Less than 6 feet would be best.

thing is, you can put a bubbler underneath your plants roots in dwc etc, so not really comparable to coco. if you let a plant sit in wet coco you cant bubble it.

if I put a freshly rooted clone in a big pot of coco and drenched it, and kept it wet, it would take forever to build up the root system,
if you feed it little and often. unless you put it in a little cup which is really hard to overwater, and dries out far more quickly because of the cup size.

the only plants ive even been able to water constantly, in coco with no ill effects is if they are pretty much rootbound. then they love it.
I think its because everyones definition of ''wet'' is slightly different. id say ''moist'' is better than wet. but then fuck ive been growing in coco for years and still changing things up and experimenting.

You can root a fresh cut in a glas of water without a bubble stone.
You can grow a rooted clone in a one gallon water bucket without a bubble stone til the point where tge plant needs more oxygen in the root zone. Next step could be a bigger bucket still without a bubble stone. Thats the way it is.
When justiceman says keep it wet than he means not keep it moist.
Wet is wet, saturated and sodden.
Everyday a fresh flush is key.

I did it and it works exactly like he describes it since the beginning of this thread.

By too wet he clearly means wet to the point where oxygenation is compromised. And he’s right. We can get away with watering the underdeveloped or partially developed root systems of young plants if the container is appropriately sized, as your lovely pictures demonstrate. But I would urge you not to advise noob growers to water everyday without primarily noting the size of their containers.

You absolutely will overwater a seedling in a 2 gallon pot if you water it to runoff everyday or even every second day.

yeah you can root a fresh cut in a bucket of water. whats your point? an unrooted clone has very little demand for water nutrients and oxygen since it has no roots.
plants need to be rootbound or in an undersized pot. do share pics of your plants. lots of things ''work'' but yield and quality are the best indictors of how well.
