No issues with the big pot or with no till, just a move towards better efficiency overall. I realized that my biggest inefficiency was the big pot itself. I maxed out the available space in the pot with the four starfighters, but the tent itself can hold a possible 9 plants. That's why I'm moving from a big no till pot to 5 gallon ROLS.
The no till pot was a great proof of concept tho, and a great way to learn the soil food web.
