They maximize root growth and aeration, by using a technique known as air-pruning, these pots allow you to grow bigger plants in smaller containers
The ground-breaking design of the Air-Pot container has been continually refined over twenty years and is now in its sixth generation. Every detail has been enhanced to guarantee healthy root development and maximize aeration.
Air-Pots walls are made up of closed inward pointing cones and open-ended outward pointing cones. The plants respond to this Air Pruning by generating more roots, this leads to a fibrous root system with a vast number of active white tipped roots. Air pots are designed to continuously direct the growth of the roots toward the exterior, never allowing for roots to spiral. Air-root-pruning stimulates root branching without toxic chemicals. This way the plants can then absorb more nutrients and water which stimulates faster growth.
