The Air Planter is designed to promote healthy growth by aerating the root zone of the plant and prevent anaerobic condition in the soil. Once the plant roots reach the fabric container wall the roots are air pruned. This pruning of the root tips at the wall of the container forces branching of thousands of fibrous feeder roots throughout the plant container. Without this air pruning, the roots as many of you have witnessed, reach the container wall then circle around the wall of the container until they finally strangle the plant (root bound). Studies have shown that the fabric planters create an air barrier to insulate the root zone during cold weather, while letting air flow around the container edge to prevent over heating of the root zone during hot weather.
The Air Planter comes in a wide range of sizes, designed to fit both the home gardeners and the commercial growers’ needs. It comes in a compacted package, that can be easily shipped or transported in the trunk of a car (no truck needed!).
The Air Planter is a geotextile gardening container made from the highest quality polypropylene fabric. It is UV stabilized for years of use in direct sunlight. The polypropylene fibers are resistant to degradation from biological environments normally found in the soil.
