In the last few years a new kind of planting container has exploded in popularity among medical marijuana growers: the fabric planting container. Fabric containers have been around for years in the nursery industry where they were used as transport and temporary containers for trees. Fabric pots allow oxygen to reach the entire circumference of the container which causes the roots to “air prune” themselves. This was an advantage to trees in the nursery industry because it encouraged the air pruned roots to branch out into multiple tiny feeder roots. When a tree was transplanted with air pruned roots they established more quickly and were less affected by transplant stress.
The fine fibrous roots branching out in a fabric container are an advantage to medical marijuana growers because they offer more channels of uptake for the valuable nutrients commonly used. Fabric pots also offer a heightened aeration of the medium because of the exposure to the air. GeoPot created a fabric planting container that is stronger and more practical than other fabric pots on the market.
The GeoPot Transplanter Series comes complete with velcro seams and are designed for fast and easy transplanting. GeoPot Transplanters are set apart from other fabric containers not only because of their proprietary velcro seam but also the thicker fabric that is used in its production. The thicker fabric is very porous and offers all the same benefits of any other fabric container while lasting longer. GeoPot Transplanters are able to be washed and reused over and over again. GeoPot also doubled up the fabric on the top flap of each pot to make filling and watering easier by eliminating “fold over” (a problem common with other fabric pots). The GeoPot Transplanters come in 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 gallon sizes and are available in both black and tan.
