About Air Pruning Pots
Pots are widely used in all kinds of gardens. Many people choose solid plastic or ceramic pots, but plant roots can quickly become stifled in these traditional containers. That's why serious growers choose air pruning pots for better plant growth.
What Are Air Pruning Pots?
Air pruning pots allow air to pass through and oxygenate your plants, which stimulates root branching for an effect known as air pruning.
As your roots grow, they will eventually meet the walls of your container. In traditional plastic and ceramic pots, the roots become tangled as they try to wrap around the inside of the pot. In air pruning pots, the air naturally prunes the old roots and stimulates the growth of new roots that deeply penetrate the soil in all directions. When the roots spread throughout the soil, they can better absorb nutrients and water for improved plant growth.
The increased airflow in an air pruning pot also helps cool your plants so they do not start to bake. Heat escapes through the porous fabric of air root pruning containers, while traditional pots retain heat. Because they are made with a porous material, air pruning pots also allow water to drain so that the soil does not become oversaturated.
Air pruning pots are sometimes referred to as air pots, not to be confused with the trademarked Air-Pot brand.
