Superoots Air-Pots

The Superoots Air-Pot is a recyclable, reusable plastic container that actively enhances the quality of the root systems of plants. Superoots Air Pots revolutionary approach to containerizing plants and trees produces fabulous, non-spiraling root systems that are impossible to develop in any other available container.

Superoots Air Pots & Containers by TerraHydroare made of recycled HDPE in the UK, the Superoots Air-Pot is circular in shape with a perforated sidewall. There are no flat surfaces due to the inward and outward pointed cones, which eliminates any chance of starting the spiraling process as well as dramatically increases growth rates.

The inward pointing cones direct the root towards the hole in the outward pointing cones where the air density in the soil is too great and therefore the apical cells at the very tip of the root dehydrate, or are air-pruned. The response of the plant to this air-pruning is to send out more roots to compensate for the loss, which leads to the build up of a dense and fibrous radial root system in a dramatically short time. Superoots Air-Pot containers can be made to any diameter in a variety of heights and can be used as pots complete with base or without a base. The real benefits of using Superoots Air-Pot containers are that they:

  • Eliminates root circling
  • Reduces growing time in the garden
  • Increases yields
  • Simplifies production
  • Minimizes the need to transplant
  • Ensures Superior Performance in Extremes of Weather
  • The Air-Pot is made of recycled HDPE plastic
  • Reduces the chance for overwatering

    Air-Pot™ Containers Get the Best Out of All Plants
    Because They Develop a Remarkable Root System

    Like many clever tools, it is actually very simple – the Air-Pot “air-prunes” roots and this constant pruning prevents any root circling and promotes the growth of more and more feeder roots. It is these fine, fibrous roots which use all the available water and food very efficiently. This develops a great top growth and excellent fruit. Air-Pot containers allow more air and better drainage than any other container. This vital element makes Air-Pot grown plants healthier and happier.
