The general growth rate of the three plants remained equal for the first 2-3 weeks of the vegetative stage.
At the end of the 24 day vegetative stage, it was observed that the Octopot plant was slightly larger than the plant in the plastic pot.
The plant in the plastic pot was slightly larger than the plant in the fabric pot.
It was noted that all three plants were healthy, disease free and pest free during all stages of growth. Keeping in mind the slight variations, all three plants were nearly 30” tall when moved into the flowering mode.
A longer veg time would most likely have resulted in a larger difference in the plants sizes. This is due to the fact that the strongest root growth occurs in the Octopot Grow System after the roots enter the reservoir, a couple weeks after planting.
