Compost and water
The Air-Pot container is only one part of a total growing system. To reap all its potential benefits it is essential to use the correct compost and watering regime.
Lack of aeration and poor drainage are big problems when growing in traditional containers.
However no such problems exist when using the Air-Pot system. We have designed and tested different mixes of compost with customers across the globe, adapting the mix to incorporate available local components.
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.
Please talk to us about your plans. We have 20 years of experience growing with Air-Pot® growers, which we are more than happy share with you.
