The Air-Pot is a revolutionary pot that is in use all over the world with incredible results! Their unique design imparts many benefits to the plants root zone which makes them well worth the investment. It is the holes all around the pots that give the Air-Pot the edge over other pots. As the roots reach the edge of the pot, they come into contact with the air which naturally “air prunes” them. They then send of side shoots which eventually pack out the whole pot with a huge network of fibrous roots.
As well as this, the Air-Pot allows much more oxygen to reach into the media, increasing gas exchange. This keeps everything healthy as anaerobic bacteria has less chance of getting a foot hold. The whole root zone has much better drainage, which will prevent issues of over watering.
Is the Air-Pot easy to use?
Air-Pots come flat pack and require some assembly; don’t worry, it doesn’t take long! Simply roll it around the base and use the securing screws to lock it in place. All of the pots we sell use 2 screws per pot except the 1L & 3L versions which use 1. Apart from that, use the Air-Pot as you would any other pot. They are suitable for use with any media and are great for use in dripper systems. At Straight Up Hydroponics, we have a range of media that you can use which are on our site here!
