I had to make the conversion for the rest of the world: 380L. How long for the roots to take over the fabric pot?

At the moment, the weather in my region is cool and damp, so not exactly ideal for chillies.
The tomatoes are already taking a beating, so I hope the chillies will cope well over the next week before the good weather returns... maybe...

Takes about 7 months or so. This is my latest plant out to date so we will see how it goes. I’ve decided to make a slight modification to my approach with these fabric bags, so will be interesting to see how this year compares to last.
 
My chosen plant for the growdown. Still hoping it is not a cross. Got a stake on it now, not pictured. I do not have containers the size of Rich Blood's containers but I will give it a go.

Weather was disgusting for the last 2 month, no sun, lots of rain and not so warm. And they still predict rain for the two next weeks...

The one lagging isn’t really lagging though. What’s happening in the root zone is why it will soon surpass the rest in that back up tray. Looking good!
 
The weather is disgusting on my side of the globe... all we get is rain, very little sunshine and temperatures much lower than normal. We must be the only ones in this situation, given that the last few months have been the hottest on Earth.

As a result, my plants in general are struggling. Those I've planted in the garden are at least 2 or 3 months behind schedule due to the endless rain, and those on my balcony in pots are suffering from lack of sun.
not to mention the slugs that wreak havoc in my garden.

I don't know if I'll get a single harvest from my competition plant this year... only time will tell.
