FABRIC ROOTING PLANT POTS – BETTER ROOTS EQUALS MORE FRUITS!
Fabric Rooting Plant Pots have amazing features such as:
AIR PRUNING ROOTS
One of the benefits of our fabric pots is their air pruning capability. Air pruning results in a thicker mass of healthier roots. More roots provide the plant more opportunities to absorb nutrients and water. Traditional pots cause roots to circle & minimal lateral branching occurs, resulting in poor nutrient uptake.
When the plant roots reach the container’s edge, its laterally branching roots grow through the fabric. The air pruning process creates more productive dense, fibrous root system that improves the uptake of water and nutrients.
The breathable, porous fabric pot allows air to enter the root zone from all surfaces of the container.
A common problem with traditional containers is poor drainage leading to anaerobic condition that result in soil borne diseases like Phytophthora, Fusarium and Pythium, responsible for devastating root rot. Due to the breathable, porous fabric, excess water can easily drain from the container, keeping moisture at an ideal level for healthy plant growth.
The construction of fabric Air Pruner pots allows air to penetrate the sides of the container. Plants will be less stressed during uncontrollable heat spikes such as heat waves, as well as better insulated against cold floors.
QUALITY & DURABILITY
Air Pruners give horticulturalists a single, extremely durable solution for all fabric-pot needs and growing environments. Perfect drainage and aeration allow optimal water and nutrient uptake. The fabric also allows air to easily reach your plants’ root zones, delivering superior drainage and creating a healthy, fibrous root environment.
IN HYDROPONIC APPLICATIONS
Fabric pots are the ideal container for some of the most popular hydroponic systems (Ebb-and-flow; Drip circulating; bottom fed) because nutrients and air can easily pass in and out of the porous fabric. The fabric can be used like a filter during the drain cycle, allowing only the nutrient solution back to the reservoir. This gives the grower the option to use peat, coco, soil and many other medium without clogging lines or pumps.
HOW LONG DO FABRIC PLANT POTS LAST?
Air Pruner fabric plant pots can be reused for up to 4-5 cycles indoors and have been known to last up to 3 years outside.
