If I were to use tall containers, instead of wide, how would that affect the growing potential of a plant?
Kewl I'm thinking of utilizing rubber-maid trashcans in my closet because of the oval shape, enabling more larger plants psi in the area.I have read, done and believe that deeper is better, it allows the tap (from seed, clones will throw a couple of semi taps more to anchor themselves though) to get down further which results in increased access to the goods... makes sense don't it?
In fact, if you have ever done or seen tree "planting tubes", they are tall and skinny!
I'm not saying use the real skinny ones but yeah, I like deeper than not.
Crickey! You must be one lean, mean dude!Thank you my new friend...
I wanna use like either 5 or 10 gallon black canisters...

I don't mean mean, but... you know what I mean!
Lugging around 5 gallon pots with the OMM was exhausting! But I'm a little dude who dreams of giant plants, so I will figure a way around it. Maybe I will attach wheels to the bottom of the pots...
Or maybe that can be my exercise to get big and strong...
The OMM told me about a friend of his that cuts 60 gallon barrels in two so he has two 30gal. pots! Talk about monsters!
I used to use Smart Pots but recently found Geo Pots and they are much better made IMO and the same price.You can also use smart pots if you are worried about root bound/circling! I have used them and still do, outside 200 gal. (30 bucks a piece) ones and can tell you... they are the shit.
They work just like air pots... check them out, for a lil investment, IMO the returns are well worth it!
I see I see... I am a closet gardener. I live a shitty state, NY!!! But I am researching moving. Whenever I can get away from this site... lolSmart/Geo Pots are fabric containers which air-prune the roots which prevents your plants from getting root-bound. They're also breathable so they keep the root zone much cooler than traditional pots.
Welcome to 420mag.Indoors, the Larger Pots dont really help. Unless you happen to have a massive grow room. I would think that a plant will only grow as much as the light source also allows, My opinion would be to try and find the right size for your available space and light, so you can maximize your overall production,ie. Plants per square foot related to lumens psf.
