Air root pruning pot is a reusable container, made of high-density polyethylene that can be recycled after long time use. It is claimed that the pots improves quality of plant roots, therefore produces a healthier plant.
The air root pruning pot is circular shape with a perforated side wall all around it, there are no flat surface. The airy wall dries out the root tips, causing no further growth but making them branching. Plants’ response to this air pruning is to send out more new roots to compensate for the loss. This leads to a dense and fibrous root system that radiates from a central point. The new root system is created in a short time. A better root system will result in a bigger, healthier plant.
