[New RhizoPots] How they Work
Rooting plants just got easier! The new RhizoPots have landed!
They're made from a 'breathable' fabric that air prunes roots!
Switch to RhizoPots to:
- Stimulate root branching
- Increase nutrient & water uptake
- Reduce the stress of potting on
They don't cost much but are truly amazing. To cut costs further, you can reuse them!
And they fold flat for handy storage! What's not to love?
What are they?
They're fabric pots that naturally air prune roots. Let us explain.
Whatever pot you're using, roots grow out towards the edge of pots.
In most pots
When roots reach the edge of the pot, forward growth continues.
Instead of branching out into the centre of pots, roots tend to circle around the pot.
- Fewer secondary and tertiary roots form
- There are fewer root tips
- Water & nutrient uptake is slower
On top of this, nutrients, water and space in the centre of pots are wasted!
When roots reach the edge of pots, they hit air.
The air dries root tips and stops forward growth.
Instead, roots start branching!
- Lots of secondary and tertiary roots form
- There are more root tips
- Water & nutrient uptake speeds up
Roots grow into the centre space, so they can use all the nutrients and water.
What about Propagation RhizoPots?
Propagation RhizoPots are slightly different.
They're made from a thinner fabric. Roots grow straight through them!
Transplanting is easy - you keep plants in their propagation pot.
It's better for you, because it's easier. It's better for plants, because they skip the stress of repotting.
When roots start emerging, you know it's time to pot on.
