The revolutionary design of the Air-Pot container actively enhances the growth and health of plants. This short video explains how it works.
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 maximise aeration. Additional oxygen in the growing medium leads to healthy bacteria and better nutrient release. At the same time the shape of the wall eliminates root circling and encourages the development of a mass of healthy fibrous roots. The additional roots mean better take up of nutrients and water leading to faster growth and healthier plants.
Toughly constructed from recycled plastic Air-Pot containers can last up to ten years or more.
For plants to thrive they need healthy roots, but standard pots deform roots and this seriously compromises the health of the plant.
Air-Pot containers do the opposite, actively enhancing the plant by making it develop a mass of healthy fibrous roots. This maximises the ability to absorb nutrients and water leading to faster growth.
For Growers who know
For many years the Air-Pot container has been the choice of expert growers around the world who use it in all areas of horticulture from food production to growing the largest trees.
Only trees grown in Air-Pot containers were used for the landscaping of London’s Olympic Park and the system is relied on by the world’s leading horticultural institutions for their vital programs of research and conservation. At the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew over three thousand species of plant are now grown in Air-Pot containers.

Super Roots 5 Gallon Air Pots
Air Pot® #5 containers, AKA 5 gallon Air Pots, provide outstanding root-zone aeration for soil, coco, and hydroponic applications. Constructed of durable recycled HDPE with contoured and perforated side walls like all Superoots containers, the 5 gallon Air Pots provide ideal root growth conditions and prevent root spiraling or root binding for the best growth possible. Although the 5 gallon Air Pots hold approximately the same size as a conventional 5-gallon container, their specialized design actually permits the growth of larger plants thanks to the superior root structure they produce.
- Maximize your root growth and development with contoured and perforated sidewalls.
- Air Pots assemble quickly and easily with included base and screws, no tools needed.
- Size: 5 gal.

Air Pots 5 Gallon Equivalent – Air Pot #5
The Air-Pot® #5 (5-gallon equivalent) is excellent for transplanting seedlings and cuttings from smaller containers. Plants can be kept for one to two seasons before transplanting into a larger pot, or directly in the garden. It is also possible to continue growing in this pot past the second season with plenty of room for plants 2-6′ tall, just keep watering and fertilizing as required. The root system will continue to flourish and will produce abundant foliage.
Actual size: 3.6 gallons or 13.8 liters
Dimensions: 12.4″H x 11.5″ Outside Diameter (10″ base) – 5 gallon equivalent – green colored base

The Air-Pot is a recyclable, reusable plastic container that actively enhances the quality of the root systems of plants. This revolutionary approach to containerizing plants and trees produces fabulous, non-spiraling root systems that are impossible to develop in any other available container.
Made of recycled HDPE in the UK, the Air-Pot is circular in shape with a perforated sidewall. There are no flat surfaces due to the inward and outward pointed cones, which eliminates any chance of starting the spiraling process as well as dramatically increases growth rates.
