Yes, that's right: Matching the substrate you use to the pot size you use is very relevant to the performance of your crop.

Substrate offer different characteristics in different pot sizes

As you can see in this image, the support provided by a substrate mixture changes when you use it in different pot sizes. When the same mixture is used in smaller pot sizes, the air content drops, while the moisture content within the substrate rises.

Substrates should not only be optimised to meet the specific demands of a crop, but they should also match your growing methods and strategy to the fullest.

A comparative trial conducted by the North Carolina State University in the United States shows the importance of using tailored substrate mixtures.
