    They're fine, plants actually grow better in them. You don't get those huge rootswirls In the fabric pots. Not sure if you actually end up with more roots necessarily but they seem to be more efficient.

    because the bags are black the baby cannot see the bubbles inside, so yeah, they must be safe, at least for babies to use.

    I love those root swirls. My plants dont even take off until those swirls reach the bottom and begin twirling up.
    no matter what size bucket I use, even up to 55 gallon....those roots swirl at the bottom for great success.
    whenever I pul a plant out of the ground and the roots are loose and not swirled....I know I didnt veg long enough in the up pot for best results.

    Like airpots and stuff?

    Then yeah. They're pretty good. Could even make some with a potato sack and soil.

    Fabric pots are great! My understanding of them is that they help to air-prune the roots, and cause a larger root mass. I've been using them (both smart and air pots) for years now without issue and prefer them over plastic pots. :)

    The girl in the picture was in a 7 gallon smartpot, and my two girls outside in the same pots are doing great as well.

    I have been using those Tyvek bags you get at the shops for groceries. Put two in each other for strength. It takes a crapload of soil.

    Generic plant bags are fine, just punch it FULL of holes with a paper punch for a cheap effective root making grow bag.

    I went with the manifold technique (not perfectly executed by any means lol, she spent a little too much time in veg). Feel free to check out the journal here. http://www.rollitup.org/t/2x-big-diesel-under-2x-900w-leds.940339/page-5#post-13772373

    I chopped her about 10 days early (as soon as the trichs were where I wanted them) and still pulled a qp off the girl. :)

    As long as what you have gets the job done, the manufacturer is irrelevant. I used some generic 4 gallon fabric pots for a few years with great results. :)

    Technically... once... lol

    I don't want to hijack the thread with a drawn out explanation; however, here's a link to where I found the idea.

    I used to scrog my grows and this girl was the test run for the new technique, and I have to say it's pretty awesome!

    I top mine at the 5th node, then again at the 4th node of new growth from the first topping get 8 or more nice cola;s that way, as for buying smart pots at box stores i have never seen them i have gotten mine at local hydro store and they are actually cheaper and can buy in bulk on amazon
