Still very much a newbie here trying to learn. My runoff has been really high sitting around 1800.. i am courious if the fabric in pots hold salts in and screws with the ppm of the run off? thank you

little confused by your answer or I confused my question.. will the cloth fabric itself hold the Salts in the fabric so when you do the test it would be higher than if it was in a normal pot.. I took a little bit of soil out about halfway down and ran a little water through it and my PPM was 450. Just wasn't sure if I was getting the correct PPM reading from the fabric pot. thank you

Yes the fabric will retain salts. Which is why I don't recommend those pots. The caveat: Retained salts can & will leach back into the medium, potentially causing issues.

I too am curious how to flush the salt out also of the fabric.. and is that why my ppm might be high.. is there a good way to check the correct PPM.. thank you
