Felt pots....

Should I have placed something under my 3 gallon felt pots to create an air space underneath them for ventilation?

      • I prop mine up on a paver stone so that it doesn't retain moisture at the bottom.

        • I use these risers and a plant saucer under it just in case I have run off. I use the bags outside with nothing under them and the roots grow into the ground below the bags.

          • I have the the 3 gal felt pots under the SCROG in one big drain table so that all the overage drains right away, but I was wondering about them still sitting on the plastic and not getting air on the bottom. I like the paver stone idea:) I'm also thinking of trying the Coco Loco with the Ocean blend underneath that next round. Oh, oh! I think I'll put a 1" bed of round pee stone next time under the pots....Thoughts?

            • If you ever water to run off, it's a good idea to put something under the pots to raise them off the floor.

              • If you are speaking of a flood table that you have them in won't be a problem...what the other guys said is a good idea as well...I don't hand water I flood mine just to explain...

                • I assume that you are just filling the flood try with water and letting them absorb the water from the bottom through the pots? I was wondering about that myself...

                    • Ok. Thinking of going coco on this next grow. Do you go with the 3rd super soil on the bottom them 2/3rd coco on top? Also, how do you start the seedlings in coco? Solo cups first with a direct transplant into coco? Dirt and all?
