The Air Root Pot is a recyclable, reusable plastic container that actively enhances the quality of the root systems of plants. One advantage of Air root pot is the ability to continually “air prune” roots. Air pruning occurs when the root tip reaches a pocket of air, which causes the tip to desiccate and forces the root branch.
Plastic air root pot have unique look. Instead of smooth sides like most plastic pots, they have series of inward and outward pointing cones. Plant roots never encounter smooth surface. Instead they are directed out the many holes in container sides, where they dry out and are naturally air pruned. Through root pruning produces healthier plant root structure.
