Well done Longball. Spidermites are the devil. Will try the isopropyl and water next time I need to perform a blitz. Those pots are popular with commercial growers. Do they help with the plants not getting as root bound do you think? They would not get as hot as a traditional black pot outside either.

Thanks, crazyhorse73. Last year was first time using the air pots. After the season I opened the pots to see the root structure. Not root bound in the sense of the roots circling around the pot but I found it odd that there was no soil left in the pot! Just a big root ball! No wonder I had to water and feed the plants 3 times a day!?. They are all I used this year. Last year I tried air pots and cloth pots. Liked the air pots better. Both types worked fine though.08_16_20_p1030520_xcMlaM.jpg

The one to my left in the picture, Northern Lights. She was one hot tamale! Very easily multi-orgasmic! Have let people sample her and now everyone wants a piece of her! But, no, no, no, she's all mine! She's a keeper. :love: Wish I had taken some clones of her!

Before the show, the guitar pinky's are told they are to be used today or @n2ishun will come with big 'Jim Booyah' knife and chop off guitar pinky's and wave to the face. This is the big guitar pinky insult. With terror of the eyes the guitar pinky's are moving with extreme hybrid vigor! Wait! Who just asked if I have been dipping into n2ishun's stash again! No Autoflowers for you, comrade!

Was looking for picture of Autoflower Girls when, whoosh, the big smile is in the picture! WTF? Does anyone know this smile? Escape from gulag maybe? Hey! Across the street! Behind the tree wearing a green shirt. Is that n2ishunovich?

Can you spot the Autoflower Girl? Is like finding Waldo! To her left is the regular hausfrau. In Motherland is saying, 'If it cannot be unseen, you must take another drink!'.

With J-Dogg, the bass has the broken foot. The roadie, Longball, is with the broken wrist. The band, Glass Pony, is with the song, 'St. James Infirmary'. Much irony to be found. Keep those guitar pinky's moving guys! You too, J-Dogg!

That's all folks! Thanks for stopping by! Next season will be Medicine Man, CBD Shark Shock, and a bunch of MNS stuff mated up with this male G13 x Afghan Skunk! And a few surprises, I'm sure! 😉

Good question, musashi! Glad you asked! My neighbor has been doing it. He has a new John Deere tractor. Takes him about 20 minutes. Me? 3 hours with push mower. Will leave cast on til mowing is over ;) Funny thing - when word got out about my wrist I could not believe how many calls and texts were about 'do you need your lawn mowed?'. Damn nice folks around these parts. I'm still the 'new' guy in town so that was very nice!:love:

Hello @BuzzardsBay! :)

They all seemed to smell pretty good. Either the Star Dawg or Rosetta Stone smelled the best. I forget. One of the two Master Kush x Skunk smelled like blueberries, that was nice, the other one did not. With a couple sinus surgeries, many plant allergies, and 7 broken noses, I'm not one to give much of an aroma report. I would love to be able to smell a girls locker room again someday. Sounds wonderful!

Because of the sinus problems, I've always had to use the 'smoke test' rather than the 'aroma test' to determine how good something is.

How did your garden turn out? Interested in your Early Queen. Mine were all males.

@crazyhorse73 asked: " Those pots are popular with commercial growers. Do they help with the plants not getting as root bound do you think?"

So far, for me, they have worked better than other containers that I have used. They are very light and that works great for me as I have to container grow and move the plants a couple times a day to get the sun. I have grown 7 foot plants in these 5 gal containers. Bigger containers would produce bigger plants! The 7 foot plants in 5 gal containers seemed to have no soil left after I opened them at end of season. Roots were fine but bigger container might of been better. But then I would not be able to move them so Catch-22 there.

Here is the root structure of a 5 foot MNS Master Kush x Skunk plant grown in a 5 gal air pot. Roots are fine, maybe a little root bound at the end cap. Nothing a couple holes in the end cap would not cure.

Not an expert but roots seem fine and healthy to me. Can any knowledgeable folks see something that I am missing?

Plants were cut about 10 days ago so soil is dry and roots are aging.

I once worked in an advanced tree nursery and they used the same material.
They didn't use bottoms though, they were just sitting on weed mat.
Certainly stops the roots circling like they do in traditional pots and I imagine it has to let more air into the root zone.
Thanks for the reply
