Air-Pots are robust and use a perforated, dimpled, 100% recycled plastic with holes that expose the tips of roots to the outside atmosphere. This revolutionary design leads the growing tips towards the holes. Any roots that reach these holes are "air pruned".
Air pruning occurs naturally when your plant's roots are exposed to dry air, external to the growing medium or pot it is growing in. "Air pruning" is the process of roots naturally drying out and falling off. Air pruning causes more new roots to grow, further back along the main root. These growing tips absorb nutrients much better than established roots. Air pruning increases the amount of new hair-like, lateral roots, increasing the plant's access to nutrients. This leads to you growing stronger plants in a shorter space of time.
Air pruning reduces the number roots circling around the sides of the pot. This leads your plants to fill more of the available growing space inside the pot. More roots = more fruits.
In short, with an improved root system, your plant can access nutrients and water easier, leading to faster, stronger growth.
Air Pots are rigid and can be moved without disturbing the root zone. Due to their robust construction, Air Pots can last more than 10 years.
Air Pot technology is not limited to one media, such as soil, coco coir or clay pebbles. Air Pot's are compatible with any potting medium as well as hydroponic systems.
Air Pot's are a horticultural revolution. Long-standing research and conservation projects, such as the Royal Botanical Gardens - Kew (Kew Gardens) and the Great British Garden at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, have utilised Air Pots to grow several species of plants and trees.
Building and using Air Pot's is easy, they're arrive flat packed and are simple to build and use. To build your Air Pot, lay everything out on a flat surface:
The revolutionary design of the Air-Pot container enhances the growth and health of plants. The below short video explains how the Air Pot system works and benefits how you grow.

Air-Pots make great seed trays and are perfect for herbs and salads. Used either in the greenhouse or outside the kitchen door, they can provide you with fresh organic greens all year.
The larger Air Pots make great potato planters and allow you to grow many plants in a small space.
The unique design of the Air Pot container transforms the quality of your plants right from germination.
To make good compost, you need healthy bacteria, which thrive in a well aerated environment. Air Pot's innovative plastic composter "Compost Air" is designed to encourage air flow all round the walls as well as up from the base of the compost heap. Compost Air not only looks good, it's simple to assemble and will last you for years. Like all Air Pot containers, it's made from 100% recycled plastic.
