- Better than Standard Black Plastic Containers
- Better than Ceramic (Clay) Containers
- Better than Raised Beds
- Better than Decorative Containers
The patented Smart Pot is a soft-sided, fabric container that has the rigidity to hold its shape and can even support large trees. In fact, the Smart Pot was originally developed for and has been used by commercial tree growers for over twenty years.
The Smart Pot is an aeration container. It has a unique ability to air-prune and enhance a plant’s root structure. A highly branched, fibrous root structure is the key to growing a better plant – with more flowers and fruits, and more resistance to insects and disease. Roots grown in a Smart Pot come in contact with the fuzzy, fabric inner wall of the bag and penetrate or grow into the fabric. The bag's tough fabric prevents the root's continued longitudinal growth, in effect pruning it, causing the root to develop masses of lateral fibrous roots The fibrous root systems produced in Smart Pots are more efficient and enable plants to maximize water and nutrient uptake in the limited surrounding soil mass.
Benefits of Smart Pots:
Fruits, vegetables and edibles are often grown by gardeners in raised beds. The Smart Pot duplicates this aerated atmosphere. And even the largest Smart Pots are easy to install and use.
Five gallon Smart Pots have a 12 inch diameter base (.62 cu. ft. or 19.3 liters).
