Clone Style Fabric Pots

A Shorter, Wider Space

If you grow from clones, you may have noticed that the roots grow out and wide rather than down and deep.  This is because of the absence of a taproot.  When clones are grown in a classic style pot, they will often not occupy the entire depth of the pot.

Save on Soil Costs

If using classic style pots filled all the way with soil for clones, it is probable that you are wasting some soil.  Some growers solve this by only filling their classic style pots part of the way with dirt.  That is a completely viable option.  Another option is purchasing pots that are shorter in the first place and not limiting your plant in any way.  That way, you use less soil, and the space matches the clones’ root system better.

Watch Kevin Jodrey explain why he likes shorter pots for growing his clones at Wonderland Nursery in Humboldt.

Converting to a Shorter Size from a Classic Style

It can get confusing when choosing a shorter pot because the gallons of a shorter pot are less than the classic pots you might be used to buying.  We recommend choosing the pot’s bottom diameter first when planning your space.  Then you can choose the shorter pot with the diameter that matches what you’re used to.  That’s why we made this conversion chart:
