Air-Pot ® – The expert’s choice

Nurseries in many countries are reaping the benefits of the Air-Pot system, from the small to the very large, the Air-Pot system is truly unique in its ability to containerise any size.

Fruit and vegetables growers, both commercial and competitive, are realising the benefits of the Air-Pot system, with improved lead times and prize winning results.

Horticultural Institutions across the globe have adopted the Air-Pot system for their work in research and conservation. The top botanical experts have embraced the benefits of Air-Pot ® .

Landscape Designers appreciate the instant establishment and almost 100% success rate of Air-Pot ® grown stock, top landscapers are increasingly specifying Air-Pot ® use for prestigious developments.

Around the world the Air-Pot system is effective from the Tropics to the Arctic circle, Air-Pot ® for all species.

The Air-Pot system, an overview of how the Air-Pot system works, why improved roots mean better plants and how this has led to experts adopting Air-Pot.

Air Pot

The Air-Pot is a recyclable, reusable plastic container that actively enhances the quality of the root systems of plants.

The Air-Pot allows your plants to develop a remarkable radial root system that simply can not be matched in any other growing container. Whether you chose soil or hydro, the Air-Pot will push the boundaries of your growing experience.

Made of recycled HDPE, the Air-Pot is circular in shape with a perforated sidewall, which is textured like an egg carton. There are no flat surfaces to deflect roots and start the spiralling process.

The inward pointing cones direct the root towards the hole in the outward pointing cones where the air density in the soil is too great and therefore the apical cells at the very tip of the root dehydrate or are air-pruned.

The response of the plant to this air-pruning is to send out more roots to compensate for the loss, which leads to the build-up of a dense and fibrous radial root system in a dramatically short time.

All these advantages can be yours just by changing the pots you grow in.

  • Improved root development
  • Improved oxygenation
  • Improved nutrient uptake
