Smart pots make it difficult to over-water your plants, but that also means you will end up watering more often
The shape is taller and thinner than a regular container, so it may be possible to put more plants in a smaller space as long as you have the height
However, there’s no one size fits all when it comes to growing weed. All types of containers have their strengths and weaknesses for growing weed, which I’ll outline for you quickly:
At the same time, it’s a lot easier to overwater your plant in a regular pot, and you may find your plants quickly become rootbound if you keep them in a too-small container. When a plant is suffering nutrient deficiencies and droopiness from being rootbound, there’s not much you can do to fix it besides transplanting the plant to a bigger container and that can be tough, especially if your plant is already in the flowering stage. I like that you never have to worry about plants becoming rootbound with smart pots or air pots.
Regular Pots vs Smart Pots vs Air Pots
Air dehydrates the tip, prunes it and stimulates root branching.
Air-Pot containers come flat, are assembled round a base and held together with one or more fixings.
