Do Roots Go Through Mesh Filters (like For Bubble Hash) ?

    I would like to put several plants without the roots getting mixed.
    I know that roots will go through any cotton fabric or similar material.

    But will it go thought the filters like the ones used to make bubble hash ? the 73 microns might be enough to stop roots and still let water/gas pass.

    Please do not reply to give an opinion, anyone has experienced ?

    I use 120 silkscreen and no roots but I do have to back rinse it once or twice a run or it clogs.

    Not sure if I do but I'll look, it's a ebb and flow and I made up a cone shaped filter for the drain and it's tie wrapped to the pipe, works great, and I can reach in, pull it and clean, just slides back on. why are you hoping to seperate roots? Is this a flooded root setup?

    to be able to remove the plants
    yeah i know, and they get clogged all the time. same as your 120um filter.
    that is probably not a good idea, ok thanks

    No not all the time just once or twice a grow lol. Nothing else I've tried stops roots but if you find something that lets small debris through but not roots please let me know, it's something I struggled with.
