The patented Smart Pot is a soft-sided, fabric container that has the rigidity to hold its shape and can even support large trees.
This size is great for growing Cucumbers, Potatoes, Summer Squash (Zucchini, Patty Pan, Crookneck), Eggplant, and Tomatillos.
Resulting from over 25 years of research and feedback from commercial agriculture tree farmers and nurserymen, the Smart Pot is convenient solution over other growing containers.
The Smart Pot is a fabric aeration container. It is foldable and made with a UV stabilizer. It will last from 3 to 5 years, depending on location.
Unlike traditional plastic containers where roots are only on the perimeter circling, Smart Pots let the roots grow out to the side of the pot where they come in contact with air. The root tips then dry out and cause the plant to create more roots laterally, filling the container with more roots.
The aeration also releases heat, up to 30 degrees more than traditional plastic. With a cooler container, roots will grow even in hotter temperatures as well as keeping microorganism life alive and working.
Even though the Smart Pot is completely porous, there are no large holes. This allows the consumer to use any medium they wish without worrying about particles leaching out.
The Smart Pot is reusable and easy to clean making it environmental and convenient. They can even be put in the wash machine with bleach.
Do NOT put the Smart Pot in the dryer
I used these smart pots to grow one tomato in each. The tomatoes did great! The pots are easy to use and look great too. I was a little concerned that with the light color some spotting or staining might occur from the soil inside, but so far that has not happened. After the season, they can be moved to another location, if needed, and brought out again for next year. Great for a small yard or where the ground soil is not suitable for gardening.
