Do we need to have runoff for super soil?I have heard you dont need run off.
For living soil u don't want run off point of it is to reause it eventually I'll get better in time . Grab some mulch that dryness u worried about won't b an issue. Layer of mulch will keep top layer moist . Like outside.

curently have clones in both fabric and plastic in a tent and maybe can see some differences. tbh I like plastics more because they evaporate less water so less work less rH and soil stays more moist. I can't think how MO's stay alive at the edges of the fabrics plus the root pruning effect means roots dry out, die and have to be recreated again from within. that sounds cool for veg but in flower plant should focus on putting her energy into buds.
also repotting with fabrics is such a hassle as they just don't release the ball easily.

I have heard the fabric pots are getting dry faster and the idea of supersoil is to keep the soil wet all the time, so which pot is better ?Fabric or Plastic?
I grow outside using a mix of organic garden and potting soil boosted with organic compost. I chose to use BPA free 7 and 5 gallon fabric pots so I can move my plants around my patio for optimal sunlight. They drain well, dry out quicker than clay pots and are more cost effective. I think they allow more oxygen to the roots. Great for my autos. Everything is growing great after 7 weeks. BTW. I water (just until I get a slight runoff) every other day when the conditions are hot and sunny.

While both plastic and fabric pots are reusable, plastic pots usually do not last as long as fabric pots. A fabric pot's material may stretch and wear with time, but it will endure longer than a plastic pot, which may eventually fracture or break.

Something went wrong. Usually a finished pot is full of roots. What happened?
not in fabric, no roots to be seen, they grow in the soil not around the inside of the pot like in plastic.....
