Assembly

Understanding the design of the pot wall and correctly assembling the Air-Pot container is essential for your plants to get the full benefits from the system.

The shape of the container has been carefully refined over many years of trials, ensuring that the plant develops the best possible root system. Delivered flat, the containers are convenient to store and quick and easy to assemble.

Compost

Compost

The Air-Pot container is just one part of a total growing system. To reap all its potential benefits it is essential to use a suitable compost mix and give the plant sufficient water.

Lack of aeration and poor drainage are big problems when growing in traditional containers. However no such problems exist with the Air-Pot system. Increased oxygenation means that the compost can be compacted in the containers without becoming anaerobic. More compost means more nutrient for the plant.

Water

The same consideration must be given to irrigation and the delivery of fertiliser. The increased rate of growth and the much greater number of new white tipped roots means Air-Pot® grown plants demand more moisture and nutrient. Managing this demand is fundamental to the success of the system.

Ideally Air-Pot® grown plants should be watered with a drip irrigation system and this is the preferred choice of professional growers. Simple inexpensive systems can now be obtained from garden centres.

Hand watering is equally effective as there are two or more rows of uncut cones at the top of the container to form a water reservoir. Hand watering is equally effective as there are two or more rows of uncut cones at the top of the container to form a water reservoir.
