Ultra Oxy Pots – Air Pruning Planting Containers
Unlike growing bags, standard nursery pots or grow pots, Ultra Oxy Pots have no flat surfaces that allow root spiraling. Ultra Oxy Pots are cylindrical in shape with egg-carton-like contours. This unique design may look unusual, but it is actually the key to enhancing the air pruning pot technique. The concave or inward pointing cones direct roots into the convex cones which are open at the tips. When roots reach the opening and are exposed to air, apical cells at the root tip dehydrate or become air-pruned. Plants respond to air-pruning by generating more roots in the inner root mass to compensate for the loss, which quickly leads to the development of a dense radial root system that will produce healthier, higher-yielding plants. Better roots mean bigger fruits!
Ultra Oxy Pots are constructed of durable recycled• HDPE that holds up to the elements better than similar pots and they can be reused for many grow cycles. Their unique collapsible design also reduces transplant shock and stores easily as an added bonus. Ultra Oxy Pots can be disassembled from around the medium when it’s time to transplant, which disturbs the root zone less than any other type of grow pot. All of these features combine to offer the ultimate intelligent container design. Ultra Oxy Pots aren’t just smart pots, they’re pure genius!
