The patented Smart Pot is for the gardener who wants a container that will grow the best possible plant. It is a new and unique advancement in container technology that is better than any other method of container gardening. The patented Smart Pot is a soft-sided, fabric container that has the rigidity to hold its shape and can even support large trees.

The Smart Pot is an aeration container. It has a unique ability to air-prune and enhance a plant's root structure. A highly branched, the fibrous root structure is the key to growing a better plant - with more flowers and fruits, and more resistance to insects and diseases.

  • Soft-sided fabric container
  • Multi-purpose
  • Aeration container for growing great plants
  • Provides air root pruning
  • Excellent drainage and releases excess heat in hot weather for superb, fibrous root systems
  • For growing vegetables, flowers, herbs, and fruit
  • Lasts for years
  • Can be left outside all year long without worrying about winter damage

Air Pruning in Smart Pot
  • As roots grow in containers they eventually reach the container walls. In hard-sided containers, these roots, upon reaching the walls, start circling and continue to circle, seeking a friendlier environment. Upon examination, these root systems exhibit a few strong roots growing in circles with very little branching, often are bound or girdled upon themselves, and, depending on the type of plant, can produce a strong taproot growing through the bottom of the containers
  • These characteristics can hinder the plant's rate of growth and in some cases its chances of survival when transplanted. Roots that have grown in a Smart Pot come in contact with the fuzzy, fabric inner wall of the bag and penetrate or grow into the fabric. The bag's tough fabric prevents the root's continued longitudinal growth, in effect pruning it, causing the root to develop masses of lateral fibrous roots. Upon comparison, root systems that developed in a Smart Pot have a much greater mass or volume than those found in hard-sided containers
  • Plants grown in Smart Pots have root balls that contain many more roots than found in a hard-sided container of similar size. The fibrous root systems produced in Smart Pots are more efficient and enable plants to maximize water and nutrient uptake in the limited surrounding soil mass
Controlling Plant Temperature Using Smart Pot Containers
  • The Smart Pot's black fabric quickly warms up early season soil, enabling plants to get off to a quicker start. Yet the same fabric, due to its porous nature, allows heat to escape from the container through evaporative cooling during the summer's hottest days
  • Even in northern climates, root systems of container-grown plants can be damaged from too much heat. University studies have also shown a direct relationship between soil temperature and slow-release fertilizer activity. Cooler containers do not allow for premature fertilizer release
Indoor Gardening
  • Gardening indoors can be as fun and rewarding as gardening outside. It can also be less of a headache! When you garden inside you bring everything to your plant: light, water, and food. Using a hydroponic system is one of the best methods to do this
  • When you garden using hydroponics you control everything. Your system delivers everything your plant needs so all your plants have to do is grow. When you're indoors you're in charge
  • The hydroponic industry for a long time has done a great job in providing the hydroponic hobbyist a nice selection of good quality lighting, nutrients, additives, pH testers, and balancers. But it has had a limited selection of containers. This meant that the gardener was forced to place their plant in a system that provides the best light, the best food, and an environment for optimal performance. However, the container they had available for use was limited
  • Not anymore. The Smart Pot is the perfect complement to any hydroponic enthusiast's system. The Smart Pot provides an environment for the root system to allow it to do what the lights and nutrients are asking it to do. Most other containers don't do this. The fact is the Smart Pot is the best container for gardening in a hydroponic system
  • The Smart Pot is made of a porous fabric that allows water to flow freely while keeping medium inside – no more clogged hoses
  • The Smart Pot air prunes the roots which create more roots through branching; more roots means more root tips and more opportunity for the plant to feed
  • The Smart Pot stimulates beneficial bacteria because of the aeration – beneficial need oxygen
  • The Smart Pot allows the plant to use all the space inside the container for root growth, thereby letting the plant grow bigger than traditional hydroponic containers allow
  • The Smart Pot doesn't allow roots to circle, making it the ideal container for a mother plant
  • The Smart Pot releases heat, keeping the plant free from stress
  • Give your plants what they want: room to grow, air to breathe, and an environment to thrive. Give your plants the Smart Pot
