Root Pouch explained !

Join the Root Pouch revolution

Root Pouch the original fabric plant container is a bestseller in the UK and USA, but just why are people switching from plastic plant pots to Root Pouch ? And what makes them so much better than other fabric plant containers on the market ?

Most growers want an easy and affordable method of growing, hand watering and drip irrigation are popular choices for feeding plants but these methods leave a little scope for increasing yields. 


Step forward Root Pouch !

Root Pouches unique fabric container design gives you the grower an extra edge when trying to achieve healthier plants and bigger yields.


Here’s how it works

Root Pouch fabric containers are made from porous materials which allow air to penetrate the root zone meaning your plants root systems not only receive more oxygen but also benefit from air pruning


What is air pruning ?

 In a traditional plant pot as your plants roots grow outwards they hit the wall of the container and have nowhere else to go so circle around to create a ball of tangled roots, this is known as root circling and it restricts your plants ability to absorb oxygen and the crucial nutrients it needs to thrive. With Root Pouch when your plants roots hit the porous fabric wall they detect air and light, the roots then send a signal to the plant to stop that part of the root growing further and instead use that energy to create routes elsewhere in the root system – effectively pruning itself.

The results speak for themselves with plenty of untangled strong and healthy roots your root system has space to breathe and freely uptake those vital nutrients. 

Root Pruning with Root Pouch can help result in more vibrant lush green foliage, faster vegetative growth, a healthier root system, healthier plants, increased nutrient uptake and of course bigger yields
