12L Rhizo Pot (Pack of 5)
Reinforced straps for easy lifting and moving of plants
Made from fabric which is breathable, enhancing aeration and drainage.
Fibre which manages the temperature of your plants and encourages the even evaporation of water.
Made from eco-friendly, biodegradable materials for sustainable gardening.
Reusable for added value.
Because traditional pots create an impenetrable wall, once a plant’s roots hit this barrier they are forced along it. The result is that your plants have roots concentrated around the wall edge, leading to malformed and circled root structure and wasted space in the centre of the pot.
This means your plants aren’t as effective at soaking up nutrients or water, stunting growth and becoming more vulnerable to changes in temperature. Ultimately, hard pots allow plants to develop roots until they hit the wall, after this growth is slowed and you have to re-pot your plants.
With soft walls Rhizo Pots encourage air pruning. Air pruning occurs when a plant reaches the breathable fabric layer. This causes the root tip to dry, halting its growth forward and encouraging the plant to grow secondary roots into the wasted central space. In time the effect is multiplied, leading to fibrous and dense roots that are better placed to absorb water and nutrients.
A root approaching the wall comes into contact with the air
The air causes the root tip to dry, pruning it and triggering secondary root growth
The result is denser root structure, less wasted space, better nutrient uptake and faster growth
Whether you are using them in the garden or within a hydroponic drip line system Rhizo Pots are the perfect alternative to plastic, terracotta or ceramic pots. They can be used effectively in the propagation stage to ensure health root development and prevent your plants from becoming pot bound.
