Fabric Versus Plastic Plant Pots
Review your project details
To understand, quantitatively, how much bigger a plant will grow in fabric pot versus plastic pot.
Fabric pots are associated with a higher yield, up to
, as well as thicker stems.
Air pruning, a
benefit of fabric pots
, is said to facilitate a mature root system and "top growth has been reported to be
20% to 25% greater
than for plants in a traditional pot."
Healthy root systems
, those that facilitate new feeder roots branching off other roots,
yield better plant growth
, which is a benefit of fabric bags.
Fabric pots promote
, which has been shown to increase the "
total length, surface area
and volume of roots."
Fabric pots can be used for
plants, which are said to
grow 30-50% faster
