The 9 gallon fabric FlexiPot fits our Auto5 tray or can be used in an open garden tray with the easy2GO Kit. Either way, it allows you to combine our power-free, water efficient, low maintenance, irrigation and feeding with a high performance fabric pot.
FlexiPots are an excellent alternative to plastic pots in that they stimulate plant growth by training the root structure rather than merely containing it.
When root tips reach the porous side of a FlexiPot they are ‘air-pruned’ – deterred from extending any further by the air outside. Secondary roots then develop, creating a fibrous root structure with vastly improved moisture and nutrient uptake. Root circling is also thus eliminated making it possible to produce bigger plants from smaller pots.
The porous BPA-free, lead-free FlexiPot material also allows improved gas exchange in the substrate. Free to breathe the root zone can see dramatically enhanced oxygen levels – supercharging growth.
Extremely durable and reusable the FlexiPot is easily cleaned between uses if desired. Once emptied the FlexiPot is best left to dry. After a few days any dust and small roots are easily brushed off. Whilst this level of cleaning is completely sufficient the FlexiPot may be machine or tub washed in peroxide in order to sterilize.
Do not put the FlexiPot in a tumble dryer.
When growing with FlexiPot in an Auto5 or with easy2GO it is essential that your AQUAvalve is sat in a weighted AQUAvalve PotSock to provide root control. Room humidity may be increased when growing with multiple FlexiPots indoors due to the exposed surface of the fabric pots.
