I do not believe that plastic pots cause root bound issues. It is simply how you water, how often you water, that determine rootbound issues. In no ways, does a specific type of pot encourage root bound issues. My opinion as an experience gardener. thanks.
Eventually you might realize that fabric pots and velcro tape are the way to go. Less harm on the plant and more places to tie down the plant. Plastic pots will cause root bound issues. Fabric pots allow air pruning on the roots. There's no wrong way to bend the plant. But, I prefer to cut off the top at that size and train the branches instead of the main stem. It's also a whole lot easier to move the velcro strips as the plant grows compared to wire. Check out my early video "LST & Garden Update 9-02".
