Enhance Your Plant Growth with Round Fabric Pots

Round Fabric Pots are made from a breathable, 350gsm fabric, providing a durable and efficient alternative to traditional planting pots. These fabric pots encourage healthy root development, prevent overwatering, and create a thriving environment for your plants, ensuring optimal growth and vitality.

Features and Benefits

  • Durable and Reusable: The 350gsm fabric is thick, offering increased durability and reduced transpiration loss compared to other fabric pots on the market.
  • Air Pruning Technology: Fabric pots "air prune" roots when they reach the edge of the pot, promoting more fibrous feeder roots, which enhances water and nutrient absorption capabilities.
  • Root Zone Aeration: The breathable fabric ensures oxygen flow to the root zone, encouraging root growth and a healthy microorganism environment.
  • Overwatering Prevention: With excellent drainage through the fabric's sides and bottom, the risk of overwatering your plants is significantly reduced.
  • Hydroponics Compatibility: Ideal for top watering or flood and drain (ebb & flow) systems, offering improved nutrient absorption on all sides.
  • Portability: Easily movable like traditional pots, fabric pots are flat packed for convenient transport and storage, with larger sizes featuring a wire rim for self-supporting structure.

How to Use

  1. Choose the appropriate round fabric pot size for your plants or seedlings.
  2. Place the fabric pot on a flat surface or tray to ensure proper drainage.
  3. Fill the fabric pot with your preferred potting mix or growing media, making sure to leave room for your plant's root ball.
  4. Plant your seedling or transplant into the fabric pot, carefully covering the root ball with additional growing media.
  5. Water and fertilise your plants as needed, ensuring proper drainage and nutrient absorption.
  6. Monitor plant growth, air prune roots as needed, and enjoy the benefits of healthier, more vibrant plants!

What are the benefits of using Round Fabric Pots over traditional pots?

Round Fabric Pots offer multiple benefits over traditional pots, including increased durability, air pruning advantages, enhanced root zone aeration, prevention of overwatering, suitability for hydroponics, and portability. They also come flat-packed, making them easy to transport and can be reused after washing.

How do Round Fabric Pots promote air pruning and healthy root growth?

When plant roots reach the walls of the fabric pot, they are 'air pruned.' This process stops the roots from growing in circles within the pot, preventing them from becoming pot-bound. Instead, the plants focus their energy on developing new feeder roots, leading to a denser and healthier root system.

How do Round Fabric Pots improve root zone aeration?

The breathable geotextile fabric used in Round Fabric Pots allows air to move from outside the pot through the pot walls and into the root zone. This encourages root growth, allows beneficial microbes to thrive, and keeps the root ball cool to prevent plant stress.

Can Round Fabric Pots help prevent overwatering issues?

Yes, the porous nature of the fabric used in Round Fabric Pots allows for free drainage through both the bottom and the sides of the pot, making it nearly impossible to overwater your plants.

Are Round Fabric Pots suitable for hydroponic systems?

Absolutely! Round Fabric Pots can be top-watered, or used in a flood and drain (ebb & flow) system, allowing plants to absorb nutrients from all sides of the pot.

Are larger Round Fabric Pots self-supporting?

Yes, larger sizes of Round Fabric Pots (15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50 & 90 Litre) have a wire rim that self-supports the pot, making it easier to fill with media and maintain the desired shape.

How thick is the fabric used in Round Fabric Pots?

The fabric used in Round Fabric Pots is 350 g/m2, which is thicker and more durable than many other fabric pots available on the market.

Do Round Fabric Pots produce better plant growth results?

Aqua Gardening has conducted trials comparing Round Fabric Pots with regular plastic pots and found that plants grown in fabric pots grow faster and healthier, with overall sizes around 50% larger. Additionally, Round Fabric Pots can be washed and reused, making them one of the best pot options for plant growth.
