Fabric Pots (or Cloth Pots), are breathable plant containers which "air prune" plants' roots as they grow and reach the end of the container. This process encourages roots to branch out and grow more fibrous feeder roots, which are much more efficient in taking up water and nutrients.

The very durable geotextile fabric is porous, allowing air into the root zone and provides great drainage creating a healthy environment for the roots.

There are many benefits in using fabric pots over traditional styles of pot:

AIR PRUNING:
Fabric pots encourage horizontal and vertical roots, but unlike the case with conventional plastic pots, once the roots reach the wall of the fabric pot they are ‘air pruned’. The root effectively stops growing and will not grow round and round the inside of the pot (pot bound). The plants' energy instead is focused on growing new feeder roots, creating a dense, healthy root system.

ROOT ZONE AERATION:
Fabric pots allow the movement of air from outside the pot, through the pot wall, and directly to the root zone. Oxygen is able to reach the root zone from all sides enabling roots to breathe and beneficial microbes to thrive. When in direct sunlight, heat is not absorbed by plastic or terracotta which heats the plants root ball, causing sweating and stress to the plant. Instead the breathability of the fabric effectively cools the root ball in the same way evaporative cooling cools a house.

EXCELLENT FOR HYDROPONICS:
Fabric pots can be top watered, or used in a flood and drain (ebb & flow) system where nutrients can be absorbed through the pot on all sides.

PREVENTS OVER-WATERING:
Over watering is a major problem for all potted plants. Fabric pots allow free drainage through the bottom as well as the sides, making it nearly impossible to over-water.

PORTABILITY:
Like traditional pots, fabric pots are very portable, and can be easily moved.
