Root Pouch is the only fabric pot company that offers natural fiber blended fabric. Natural fiber blends are specifically designed for optimal water absorption and temperature control. These natural fibers create a superior in-ground growing bag. The natural fibers will draw water toward the pot from the surrounding soil.
Another advantage to the Natural Fiber blended, 3-4 year semi-degradable pouches over other fabric bags is that Root Pouch Pots do not air-prune. Rather, plant roots with prune by entrapment, making them the best choice for in-ground and pot-in planting. Whether you plan on using the pouches for in-ground or above ground growing, Root Pouch Fabric Pots will offer the most advanced root pruning technology available.

What makes Root Pouch plant pots a more sustainable gardening option?
Root Pouch plant pots used reclaimed plastic bottles that would otherwise be sent to our landfills. This not only recycled old plastic, it prevents the need for new plastic to be created, which saves petroleum and fossil fuels from being used.
What makes Root Pouch plant pots a better choice for healthier plants?
Root Pouch plant pots are more breathable and water-efficient, encouraging a more fibrous, dense root structure and preventing roots from circling. They also provide superior insulation, protecting plants against winter cold and summer heat.
What are Root Pouch plant pots made of?
Root Pouch plant pots are made of PETE (polyethylene terephthalate) derived from plastic bottles. This material is melted back to its original sterile liquid state then spun into fibers that are mixed with recycled cotton fibers, which degrade harmlessly over time. The resulting geotextile is available in four versions, each with a different degradation schedulefrom six months to six years.

Colorado State University compared black plastic nursery pots to Root Pouch and Smart Pot Fabric Pots in a Field Nursery environment. See Study Results
i like these much better than smart pots or other knock off brands-
i did a cycle with 4different fabric pots root pouches outperformed them all
So much better than plastic pots. Roots don't circle outside of the pots. Helps with soil drying.
Working out well. Plants growing better than in plastic pots. Neighbors have asked about them because they like how they look. Very pleased with purchase.
Very disappointed in the fabric pots. The size was 5 gallons and apparently they are measured differently than I thought because these pots look to me like they hold about 2 gallons. They're not useless but I now have 100 fabric pots that are nowhere as big as I needed. Had I known this I would have ordered a much larger size. I guess education can be expensive. Lesson learned.
I've brought both gray and brown pouches to try out. I have been very happy so far with the brown ones but not sure about the gray ones, there thinner in materials and i know somewhere down the line I will use them in some other application and they well be great but at this time I've been using the brown ones for now. I like what I've seen so far and will be buying more in the future thanks
My tomatoes love them.
I'm growing trees, shrubs and some perennials in root pouch for resale. They're so much easier to dig out of ground and the roots are much healthier. At age 62, I need easier wherever I can find it. Root Pouch is the best quality grow bag I have found. BTW, GreenHouse Megastore really delivers. They are second to none.
Loves the pouch, it's hold water a little longer.
These are not 5 lb bags. They are 1 on bags. 1.5 at most. I like the fabric and look but very dissatisfied with the misleading size
Love these root pouches in grey. Better than any other plant container I've bought. They work just as described. Thanks
