? I grow in a 7 gal pot in a tent and never have had a root bound plant as of yet and it looks like you live out west where it is legal to grow pot outside but here it Texas we have to hide in tents.Thanks KYF looks like you are growing in a tent. This is my first totally organic grow outside I'm happy with the results other than a bit more yellowing off than normal due to the smart pots root bounding my plants . Next year I'm growing them right in raised beds I'm done with the pots i thought about the no till method but the 30 gallon pots are so root bound thats not possible. My old metal pots had the bottoms cut out so the tap root had room to grow down but the smart pots prevented that from happening thus yellowing off started earlier than expected but they all finished off nicely it just made the trimming part a bit more tedious.
