Product Spotlight: Root Pouch

Product Spotlight: Root Pouch Fabric Pots

What is a Root Pouch?

Root Pouch is a fabric planting container made from recycled plastic water bottles. They have several different fabric densities, colors, and patterns depending on what the need and decor is. They are safe to use in growing edibles as well as decorative plants. Perfect for drip systems, overheads and hydroponic flood trays, as well as the use for the home grower.


Why fabric pots?

Root Pouch fabric is a mixture of PETE (recycled plastic water bottles) and natural fibers that creates a mesh like surface. Once roots reach the fabric it signals the plant to send out new roots, instead of circling and strangling the plant like other containers. Thus creating super dense, fibrous healthy root systems for plants. Root Pouch containers achieve a superior root system over the traditional plastic pot. These natural fibers mixed into the netting of the fabric will retain moisture much more evenly around the pot.


Why Root Pouch over other fabric pots?

Root Pouch is the only fabric pot on the market made from recycled plastic water bottles and mixed with natural fibers, such as jute and cotton. It has always been a frustrating feat to want to purchase and use earth friendly items, but when they are usually far more expensive then their less earth friendly counterpart it is sometimes difficult to do. Root Pouch decided to keep their prices low and affordable. Growing in Root Pouch not only takes the water bottles out of the landfill, but it also diminishes the use of the traditional black plastic pots (that also end up in the landfills), lessening the carbon footprint. 


Root Pouches are not only earth friendly and affordable but they also create an ideal environment for the plant to grow in. Their handles and stitching are industrial strength and make planting and growing in them that much easier.


Does the recycled material leech contaminants into my plants?

No. Root Pouch uses recycled plastic water bottles (known as PETE) in the making of their fabric. PETE is a plastic resin made from water bottles that have the recycled symbol surrounding the number 1, which is FDA-approved as safe to drink and eat out of. PETE is used along with natural fibers because of its strength, thermal-stability and its resistance to UV rays.

Mammoth P Vendor Days!

The Challenge

The MAMMOTH® mission is to provide solutions for a range of challenges that cultivators face. They have polled thousands of growers and have identified:

Nutrient Uptake and Yield:
Cultivators must maximize nutrient delivery to plants to see the full potential of the plant’s quality and harvestable yield. When fertilizer is added to soils or hydroponic systems, up to 70% becomes immediate unavailable to plants. Unutilized fertilizer represents wasted money to the grower and can have negative environmental impacts.

Pest Prevention:

Pests like spider mites and thrips pose the potential to cause huge losses for cultivators if they are not addressed before they become a problem.

The Solution

Biostimulant:

Their microbial biostimulant, MAMMOTH® P, unlocks phosphorous that is chemically bound in soils or hydroponic systems and converts it into soluble forms that plants can easily take up through their roots. MAMMOTH® P contains a consortium of live microbes that function as self-replicating bioreactors that are 30x better at liberating nutrients than the average soil microbial community. Like micro bioreactors, our beneficial bacteria continually produce enzymes that function to mobilize nutrients in the growth medium. MAMMOTH® P naturally accelerates the nutrient supply to plants to increase plant health, quality, and yield.
Biocontrol:

Their pest prevention solution, MAMMOTH® Biocontrol Preventative Insecticide (MB-PI), utilizes compounds found in thyme oil found to be highly effective in pest prevention and control. MB-PI is made entirely from plant-derived ingredients which means it leaves zero toxic residue, and is safe for testing.
