If you're thinking of air pruning pots consider Rhizo Pots - better performers than rocket pots and air pots and at a fraction of the price. A Rhizo Pot is a fabric pot which allows extra aeration in the root zone, for rapid root growth and better root health. All pots are black and self-supporting. Sizes 16L and above have handles.
Rhizo Pot Durability and Re-use
Rhizo Pots are breathable fabric plant containers "air prune" your plants' roots when they reach the end of the container. The air root pruning process forces the roots to branch out with 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.
Rhizo Pot Results
We have trialed Rhizo pots against regular round plastic pots (and "geopots"), and the results are impressive. Our tomato planted in the fabric pot grew faster and healthier than the regular pot, with the overall size around 50% larger. Combine this with the fact Rhizo pots can be reused after being washed, they are definitely one of the best pots available.
