*Includes Air-pot base + fixing.
‘Whatever you are growing it’s the roots that matter’
The Air-Pot is a recyclable, reusable plastic container that actively enhances the root system of plants. The Air-Pot is suitable for use with a wide range of growing media and is used in passive or hydroponics systems.
Whether you choose to grow in soil or hydro, The Air-Pot allows your plants to develop a remarkable radial root system that simply cannot be matched in any other growing container.
The Air-Pot is delivered to you as flat packed kit that assembles in seconds. After harvest, the Air-Pot is quickly removed from the root complex and can be stored flat until the next time it is needed.
The Air-Pot is made from extra tough 100% re-cycled HDPE plastic and can be used again and again and again…
- Prevent root circling
- Increase root mass
- Improve nutrient uptake
- Improve oxygenation
- Reduce crop times
- Reduce transplant shock
- Faster growth rates
- Higher yields
How the Air-Pot works?
The walls of the Air- Pot are made up of inward pointing cones and open ended outward pointing cones. There are no flat surfaces on the inside of the container to deflect the roots and start the circling process.
The inward pointing cones direct the roots towards the open ended cones where, because the air density in the medium is too great, the root tips dehydrate and are “air-pruned”.
The plant responds to this “air-pruning” by sending out more roots to compensate for the loss. This very quickly leads to the entire volume of medium being filled with a vast number of highly active root tips and no unhealthy circling roots. The shear mass and efficiency of the root system increases the plants uptake by approximately 15% leading to accelerated growth and higher yields.
The porosity of the Air-Pot ™ also creates better conditions for bacterial activity which further increases the amount of nutrients available to the plant.
The raised base prevents plants from standing in water or on cold surfaces providing superior oxygenation and better conditions for growth.
