I've read about them also and noticed when buying them from certain shops pot size related to plant height 15l are 100cm I think.
Also they advise the plants use 15% more water etc.
I'm a noob so can't compare to other grows I'm afraid.

How many grows you done without the airpots and were yields pretty consistent etc before?
Thanks again for the info.

As I said, they did OK, but not sure they're worth the extra effort. This year I may just use them for my toms.I do think they are over hyped.

I have noticed a lot of people dont put them together correctly. You will notice 2 or 3 rows of the outward facing nobbly bits do not have holes. This side should be at the top of the pot with soil filled up past the holes. I set them up this way round and hardly any water comes out except for a few tiny trickles.
I have just potted up 9 Greenhouse Seeds Great White Shark from smaller normal pots into 10L air pots. This is my second grow and things had not gone smoothly before potting up to these pots. They seem to be recovering nicely now though it is probably too early to tell. I will keep an eye on the stretch but I have nothing to compare it to really.
My last/ 1st grow was in the air pots (Royal Queen Amnesia Haze) which I seemed to be having constant slight discolouration but it looked like they were not getting the nutrients they needed and not related to the air pots (I read a lot of threads blaming bio bizz products on this so i think it was a combination of this and me being a novice!). I got quite a nice yield off them for my first grow and was very chuffed. And they did almost double in size during flower.

Dunno if can help cos its my first grow and using airpots. so no comparison to normal pots.
I started in 1 ltr pots? (4 inch diameter). Then at 4 weeks they went into 10 ltr pots.
my growth slowed at 3 weeks so prob should of put them in 10s at week 3. The roots were packed and very heathly (with noob eyes!) but when i put them in the 10s nothing happened for 3-4 days then when roots peeked out bottom of pot i put into flower. They were about 12 inch when i went into flower.
Now at week 3 of flower they easy double height ( is this what you mean by stretch?) if so i have deffo 100% stretch!?
Im using biobizz soil and nutes but was using root shot 1ml p/ltr for whole time in small pots and used it for first week in 10 ltr pots. All going well so far But have no idea what my yeild will be like?
I have 6 lemon skunk under a 600w and 400w and i do bout 15 ltrs per feed.
Hope this helps (and makes sence)
I also use a dripper system
Just re-read your post again
JUst a stab in the dark but maybe its cos your starting in normal pots and then to airpots? your getting root coil in normal pot and then when you transfer to air pot this could be screwing up root system cos air pots supposed to stop this by root pruining and no coiling of roots ( youtube vid on this) thus transfer from airpot to airpot has a quick pick up cos roots dont have to uncoil they just grow straight out to holes. Again hope this helps!
