The Root Pouch has proven to grow a more finer, even rootball than the plastic type bag. This has a long term beneficial result on the health and wellbeing of the tree. Root Pouch also has strong environmental benefits over the plastic bag, being made of recycled and natural products therefore minimalizing wastage and keeping plastic usage down.”

  • Why is Root Pouch Thin Black the best choice for propagation?

    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 in the fabric creating dense fibrous root systems while containing the roots within the bag.

    Young plants can be planted directly into next shift up pot or into soil. Fabric will degrade in 12-18 months

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
