    Oh and i just looked it up. 7 gallons is 26.4 liters if i did my math correctly. So you would be using close to what we are calling a 5 gallon pot. If growing autos, or smaller photos, that is probably fine. Alot here use 5 gallon pots. And many even use 3 gallon. I just like my plants a bit bigger than most. Just takes longer from start to harvest with a larger plant but i think it helps yields even in the long run.

        I posted some pics in another thread of plants in 7 gallon air pots. Next grow im going to bigger pots on my photos. Im pretty sure i could get better yields with a larger root system. The autos are so far doing just fine in 7 gallon pots.

          Nope they are 7 gallon fabric/air pots. They are just big plants. I have 1 gallon, 3 gallon, 5 gallon, and 7 gallon. All those in pics are the 7s.

          I thought the same thing when i first got them. That they were not that big. Until you fill them with soil. Takes a full bag of ffof to fill 2 of them.

          I think about earlier pot sizes...
          In Soil, I'd do a second step at 2-3 gallon or 7.5L - almost regardless of final container size.
          In Coco, my second step is much smaller, only 1/2 gallon.

        I start in a rapid rooter. When i see the roots i then go to peat pots that are about the size of a solo cup. The roots will just grow through the pot itself. So when its time for a bigger pot you just plant the whole thing, pot and all. When i see roots in the peat pots i go to a 1 gallon air/fabric pot. When the plants get big enough i then go to the 7 gallon pots. Even with autos ive never had a plant show signs of slowing down due to transplanting this way. This makes it very easy to water and not have to worry about under or over watering.

          I tried going from 1 gallon to 3 gallon but the plants are growing so fast by the time they leave the gallon pots that it seemed like an unnecessary step. They fill the 7 gallon pots very quickly.

          Yes, 3 stages is really ideal. I like and agree with your transplant regime.
          I think peat pots are a great idea in soil! I'd line the hole with a little perlite before lowering in the peat pot at "transplant"

        So I went to a hydroponic store to get a quote of all my required items. looked at pot sizes.. and have finally come to the conclusion of starting in a jiffy pellet.. 2L pot, 10L pot and finally a 26L smart pot

          Just out of interest does anyone have any views on circle pots or square pots?

            As long as its an air pot (what i think you are calling a smart pot) i dont think it will matter what shape the pot is.

              In related news, I have been tempted to switch to air-pots for some time, and every time they come up it tempts me again.
              I love drainage and aeration!

              My brain kind of adds the 2 together. They both have the same purpose. Better drainage, better breathing, and thus a better root system. Air pots are just more expensive. Lol But as long as he is talking about one of those 2 types pots the shape shouldnt matter.

              Yes, round or square doesn't matter.

              But if you can choose dimensions, tall and skinny is better than short and squat. Again, love of drainage. There are two different styles of 7-gallon fabric pots, for example - a short/squat one and a tall skinny one.
