Benefits Of Using Root Pouches Over Plastic Pots
Unlike traditional plastic pots, fabric pots allow water, air and nutrients to flow through its structure freely. This allows the plant roots to take up plenty of oxygen and allows them to breathe efficiently to nourish the plant.
Especially in the winter time, keeping your plants warm is important for keeping them healthy. The insulated fabric material of these pouches helps to keep out the winter cold. Imagine going outside and trying to keep yourself warm with a sheet of plastic – a fabric blanket would do a much better job wouldn’t it? Root Pouches work on exactly the same concept. What’s more, in the (slightly) hotter weather during summer time, the breathable fabric allows your roots to stay cool!
Root Pouch is the only fabric pot company that offers natural fiber blended fabric. Natural fiber blends are specifically designed for optimal water absorption and temperature control. These natural fibers create a superior in-ground growing bag. The natural fibers will draw water toward the pot from the surrounding soil.
Another advantage to the Natural Fiber blended, 3-4 year semi-degradable pouches over other fabric bags is that Root Pouch Pots do not air-prune. Rather, plant roots with prune by entrapment, making them the best choice for in-ground and pot-in planting. Whether you plan on using the pouches for in-ground or above ground growing, Root Pouch Fabric Pots will offer the most advanced root pruning technology available.
What are Root Pouch plant pots made of?
Root Pouch plant pots are made of PETE (polyethylene terephthalate) derived from plastic bottles. This material is melted back to its original sterile liquid state then spun into fibers that are mixed with recycled cotton fibers, which degrade harmlessly over time. The resulting geotextile is available in four versions, each with a different degradation schedule—from six months to six years.
