Root Nurse Fabric Pot

A Root Nurse Fabric Pot is an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plastic plant pots. They consist of recycled fibres and plastic bottles, and their lightweight yet robust, durable structure helps promote faster root zone development and healthier plants.

The manufacturers produce these products without using materials that harm the environment, and each unit is reusable for approximately three years. Once the fabric pot has come to the end of its workable life, it is biodegradable; therefore, growers can dispose of it safely in the knowledge that they are doing so in an eco-friendly manner.

These fabric pots are an ideal addition to any hydroponic growers’ setup as they offer the following handy features and benefits:

  • They promote increased plant development.
  • Fibrous structure to help generate more robust root zones
  • They provide better aeration and drainage
  • Fibre pots prevent root circling to generate thicker root mass
  • Eco-friendly, made using recycled materials
  • Better for the environment and biodegradable

How do these fabric pots work?

Hydroponic gardeners often refer to these pots as air-pruner pots, Rhizo pots or dirt pots, but they all function similarly to let air pass through the tiny holes within their fabric structure.

This air movement process significantly affects plant roots more than those grown in more traditional plastic pots. The outer perimeter of the growing substrate gains extra exposure to far more oxygen than is usually available, affecting the plants’ roots as they grow towards the pot sides.

As the roots reach the sides of the pot, the air naturally prunes them, forcing the plant to form another one from its root zone. This procedure creates a dense radial gathering of root growth, perfect for removing conventional issues growers experience with root circling.

Root circling arises when plants grown in plastic containers develop roots that can only grow around the inner periphery of the pot over and over again. Growing plants this way is less effective because the root density forms around the pot’s internal wall, underutilising the available growing room and access to nourishment within the growing medium.

How do I use these fabric pots?

These fabric pots are available in grey and black and various sizes ranging from 1 to 76-litre capacity.

Using these pots is straightforward. It’s always good practice to decide where you want your plant to grow before you begin, as once filled, fabric pots are flexible and are best left unmoved once planting is complete.

Position the Root Nurse pot and fill it with your preferred growing media. Position your plant, ensuring that you take your time to water it thoroughly. Because these pots dry faster than their conventional counterparts, you may need to water them more often, particularly in warmer temperatures.
