I used those before but haven’t had too much experience with em but they worked pretty good and helped retain moisture.
Earthboxes a dope but they are a bit pricey and you gotta be careful not to fill the res before letting it dry out a bit. I found out the hard way on that but in flower the plants drink so much it doesn’t seem like it would be an issue. They do work great tho if you’re really busy or want to put time in elsewhere.
I’ve recently started using promix
HP which doesn’t have any castings or nutrients and I’m strictly top dressing everything and have had pretty good results so far. It’s going to be the way I run living soil from now on. Top dress your amendments and castings and let it rip!! I will still amend my already used soil tho so it can cook until the next run. Big containers really do make things easier I think you will crush it with some 15 gal pots. I would top and train this next run bc I’ve said it before they are gonna stretch like crazy! Here’s the before and after from that run with the Okie Wedding Cake X The Real Sour and Oreoz X Okie run. They just kept growing 😆
