AIR POTS 1L Original – Amazing Roots = Amazing Yields ..! GENUINE AIR-POT
The Superoots Air-Pot is a recyclable, reusable plastic container that actively enhances the quality of the root systems of plants.
The Air-Pot allows your plants to develop a remarkable radial root system that simply can not be matched in any other growing container.
Whether you chose soil or hydro, Air-Pot’s will push the boundaries of your growing experience.
The Superoots Air-pot is a growing container which is circular in shape but with a unique perforated side-wall which is textured like an egg-carton. In a conventional pot, roots grow outwards from the plant and when they hit the side-wall they begin to spiral around it. This process is relatively inefficient as the root-system ends up being densest around the outside of the pot leaving much of the soil within the container devoid of any roots.
The Superoots Air-pot works in a very different way. Roots begin growing out from the plant as in a normal pot but when the roots hit the side-wall they are guided into a cone and then towards a perforation on the outside. As the roots do this they hit higher air-density and stop growing, an effect called “air-pruning”. This causes the plant to send out more and more root-shoots which fill out the soil with a full and dense root-system.
Made of recycled HDPE, the Air-Pot is circular in shape with a perforated sidewall, which is textured like an egg carton. There are no flat surfaces to deflect roots and start the spiralling process.
The inward pointing cones direct the root towards the hole in the outward pointing cones where the air density in the soil is too great and therefore the apical cells at the very tip of the root dehydrate, or are air-pruned.
The response of the plant to this air-pruning is to send out more roots to compensate for the loss, which leads to the build up of a dense and fibrous radial root system in a dramatically short time.
