FAQ

  • Is FDA approval required at this time for Grow Bags, Nursery Pots, or any Horticultural containers?

    Short answer is no not at this time. Our understanding is that at this time the federal government does not view growing Cannabis as a federally legalized act and has not yet required that they meet FDA standards test 21 CFR 177.1630 (contact with food, drugs, biologics and cosmetics).

    The FDA requirements are of course inevitable since it is important that container manufacturers create safe non-toxic containers for the use of growing plants that will be consumed by humans.

    We at Root Pouch believe it is important to our customers that our containers have been tested and have passed safety test for contact with food. We have decided not to wait until it is required and have taken it upon ourselves to ensure that the containers we produce are free of harmful contaminants that my effect the quality and safety of the plants grown in them.

    All our grow bags have undergone rigorous testing by BACL (Global testing and certification lab) in accordance with FDA contact test 21 CFR 177.1630

FAQ

  • What are Root Pouch Boxer Pots made of?

    Root Pouch degradable plant pots are made of PET derived from recycled plastic water bottles. This material is melted back to a sterile liquid state then spun into fibers.
    Because the plastic is re-melted it is once again sterile making it a great choice for growing plants for human consumption. Root Pouch does not use new petroleum as some other fabric companies do. So Root Pouch does not contain any toxins and It is BPA free and UV resistant.


  • What makes Root Pouch the best choice for healthier plants?

    Root Pouch fabric does not simply hold dirt it provides a healthier root environment.

    • The fabric is breathable allowing oxygen to reach the roots
    • The fabric has superior insulation protecting the roots from heat and cold.
    • The fabric weave traps the root tips preventing circling and girdling of the roots, encouraging the plant to produce a dense lateral root structure.
    • The fabric disperses the suns rays preventing root tip damage from direct sunlight.


  • What makes Root Pouch plant pots a more sustainable choice?

    Root Pouch is made from recycled plastic water bottles. These water bottles were destined to end up in landfills. This not only prevents the water bottles from ending up in oceans and the environment but also eliminates the need to make additional pots or bags that are petroleum based using natural resources.


  • Is FDA approval required at this time for Grow Bags, Nursery Pots, or any Horticultural containers?

    Short answer is no not at this time. Our understanding is that at this time the federal government does not view growing Cannabis as a federally legalized act and has not yet required that they meet FDA standards test 21 CFR 177.1630 (contact with food, drugs, biologics and cosmetics).

FAQ

  • Why is Root Pouch the best choice for in-ground growing and pot-in-pot?

    Root Pouch fabric does not air prune like other fabric pots, rather it prunes by entrapment.
    Air pruning fabrics allow the root to squeeze through the fabric. Root Pouch traps the root tips creating dense fibrous root systems while containing the roots within the bag, making it the best choice for in- ground and pot-in-pot applications. When used as an in-ground grow bag another advantage Root Pouch offers over all other bags is the natural fibers in the fabric draw water towards the pot from surrounding soil lessening the need for drip systems.


  • What are Root Pouch natural fiber pots made of?

    Root Pouch degradable plant pots are made of PET derived from recycled plastic water bottles.
    This material is melted back to a sterile liquid state then spun into fibers that are mixed with natural fibers which degrade over time. Because the plastic is re-melted it is once again sterile making it a great choice for growing plants for human consumption. Root Pouch does not use new petroleum as do some other fabric companies, so Root Pouch does not contain any toxins. It is BPA free and UV resistant.


  • Why are natural fibers beneficial?

    Natural fibers are bio-degradable, depending on the mixture amount of natural fibers and synthetic fibers (PET) will determine how long the fabric will be able to restrict the roots from penetrating the fabric once the fabric is exposed to soil on both sides. When the fabric starts degrading, the roots can then penetrate into the surrounding soil. Root Pouch offers 5 different densities and natural fiber blends to fit all types of growing.


  • What makes Root Pouch the best choice for healthier plants?

    Root Pouch fabric does not simply hold dirt it provides a healthier root environment.

    • The fabric is breathable allowing oxygen to reach the roots
    • The fabric has superior insulation protecting the roots from heat and cold.
    • The fabric weave traps the root tips preventing circling and girdling of the roots, encouraging the plant to produce a dense lateral root structure.
    • The fabric disperses the suns rays preventing root tip damage from direct sunlight.

FAQ

  • Can I plant my plant in the ground with a ROOT POUCH on it?

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words, this picture was a tree that was planted 3 years ago with the bag left on.

    (Pictured is the Grey, 250 g/m2 bag) As you can see the roots are fantastic, they are strong, fibrous and very dense.

    Depending on the fabric used and how long the plant has been in the pouch, the answer varies, the tree photographed has been grown in a Root Pouch now for three seasons and the roots are fibrous and dense.

    With the exception of our boxer line, the fabric is made of a blend of natural fibers as well as PET. Root Pouch has perfected the process of mixing natural fibers into the fabric. No other company has this ability. The natural fibers are biodegradable and will start the degrading process quickly once dirt is on both sides of the fabric (buried with the tree) the bag when in the ground almost acts as a healthy membrane protecting and nourishing the roots. The PET does not break down, and thus our boxer line will not break down at all..

    We created the natural fiber bags for the sole purpose of having a product that could be planted with the plants in the field, and then allowing growers to dig up.

    The reason we state on our website to remove the bag is because we distribute our product to every state and most all countries across the globe. Some countries as well as some states have restrictions on commercial horticulturist such as landscapers from planting any containers in the ground, to stay.

    Our direct customer base is not the end user, or consumer, it is the commercial growers and landscapers so all our advertising is directed on a commercial platform. That is why we advertise (website) that we recommend to remove the bag.

    Again take a look at the picture and I’m sure you will agree, that is a beautiful root structure. That is what you can expect of your trees roots with a little care in 2-3 years after you plant it.


  • Why are natural fibers beneficial in Grow Rooms?

    For grow rooms, the natural fiber blend offers thermal consistency. The natural fibers also retain an even distribution of water throughout the fabric wall lessoning water usage.


  • Why is Root Pouch the best choice for in-ground growing and pot-in-pot?

    Root Pouch fabric does not air prune like other fabric pots, rather it prunes by entrapment.
    Air pruning fabrics allow the root to squeeze through the fabric. Root Pouch traps the root tips creating dense fibrous root systems while containing the roots within the bag, making it the best choice for in- ground and pot-in-pot applications. When used as an in-ground grow bag another advantage Root Pouch offers over all other bags is the natural fibers in the fabric draw water towards the pot from surrounding soil lessening the need for drip systems.


  • What makes Root Pouch the best choice for healthier plants?

    Root Pouch fabric does not simply hold dirt it provides a healthier root environment.

    • The fabric is breathable allowing oxygen to reach the roots
    • The fabric has superior insulation protecting the roots from heat and cold.
    • The fabric weave traps the root tips preventing circling and girdling of the roots, encouraging the plant to produce a dense lateral root structure.
    • The fabric disperses the suns rays preventing root tip damage from direct sunlight.


  • What are Root Pouch natural fiber pots made of?

    Root Pouch degradable plant pots are made of PET derived from recycled plastic water bottles.
    This material is melted back to a sterile liquid state then spun into fibers that are mixed with natural fibers which degrade over time. Because the plastic is re-melted it is once again sterile making it a great choice for growing plants for human consumption. Root Pouch does not use new petroleum as do some other fabric companies, so Root Pouch does not contain any toxins. It is BPA free and UV resistant.


  • What makes Root Pouch plant pots a more sustainable choice?

    Root Pouch is made from recycled plastic water bottles. These water bottles were destined to end up in landfills. This not only prevents the water bottles from ending up in oceans and the environment but also eliminates the need to make additional pots or bags that are petroleum based using natural resources.


  • Why are natural fibers beneficial?

    Natural fibers are bio-degradable, depending on the mixture amount of natural fibers and synthetic fibers (PET) will determine how long the fabric will be able to restrict the roots from penetrating the fabric once the fabric is exposed to soil on both sides. When the fabric starts degrading, the roots can then penetrate into the surrounding soil. Root Pouch offers 5 different densities and natural fiber blends to fit all types of growing.


  • Is FDA approval required at this time for Grow Bags, Nursery Pots, or any Horticultural containers?

    Short answer is no not at this time. Our understanding is that at this time the federal government does not view growing Cannabis as a federally legalized act and has not yet required that they meet FDA standards test 21 CFR 177.1630 (contact with food, drugs, biologics and cosmetics).

    The FDA requirements are of course inevitable since it is important that container manufacturers create safe non-toxic containers for the use of growing plants that will be consumed by humans.

    We at Root Pouch believe it is important to our customers that our containers have been tested and have passed safety test for contact with food. We have decided not to wait until it is required and have taken it upon ourselves to ensure that the containers we produce are free of harmful contaminants that my effect the quality and safety of the plants grown in them.

    All our grow bags have undergone rigorous testing by BACL (Global testing and certification lab) in accordance with FDA contact test 21 CFR 177.1630

What is the difference of Root Pouch b&b fabric vs traditional burlap?

Burlap has been around since the 17thcentury and is still an adequate economical way to wrap a root ball for very short periods of time providing great care is given to watering and protection from the elements.

Our Root Pouch b&b fabric wraps act as a protective membrane around the root ball and are strong enough to last well into the next season. It is breathable, absorbent and will allow water to reach the root ball and not shed off as with burlap. It will protect the root ball from heat exposure, direct sun damage to root tips and even protect the roots from winter cold.

What is the Root Pouch b&b fabric?

Root Pouch has developed a strong lightweight 150g/m2 natural fiber blend as a root wrap for trees and shrubs. It’s advantages are especially noticed after trees are being held longer than 3-4 months. Growers typically are anticipating the trees will be purchased and transplanted, but when this is not the case, then the dug tree can live a long and healthy life in the Root Pouch b&b fabric.

What are the benefits of using the Root Pouch b&b fabric?

Normally field digging is limited to spring and fall, during this time growers face the challenge of anticipating which and how many units they should dig and project how many will sell. Always trying to project sales any unsold dug trees have to go through summer heat or winter cold and this makes holding the trees more than just difficult.

An advantage to this fabric versus burlap is watering the trees. Overheads work great with this fabric, water that hits the outside of burlap sheds off whereas the natural fibers in the fabric absorb the water allowing it to reach the root ball.

Growers can now with confidence harvest trees, ball and Root Pouch them knowing that with proper maintenance they can be held in a healthy viable condition for seasons not just months.
