Every detail of this kit has been enhanced to grow healthy roots and maximize aeration. Additional oxygen in the growing medium leads to healthy bacteria and better nutrient release. The shape of the wall of the air pot eliminates root circling and encourages the development of a mass of healthy fibrous roots. The additional roots mean better take up of nutrients and water leading to faster growth and healthier plants.
This kit is excellent for transplanting seedlings and cuttings. It also includes coco coir plugs so that you can go from germination to harvest. Plants can be kept for one to two seasons before transplanting into a larger pot, or directly in the garden. The Air Pots are 3 gallon equivalent and will accommodate a 2′ to 6′ plant.

The coco coir grow medium is a reusable product that retains moisture and provides a good environment. Coco coir is one of the most effective growing media for water retention out there. It can absorb up to 10x its weight in water, meaning the roots of your plants will never get dehydrated. There’s also a lot of growing media for roots to work through, promoting healthy root development. It is environmentally safe. Coco coir doesn’t have the same environmental concerns that peat moss poses. It’s also a repurposed waste product from a renewable resource, unlike the peat bogs where we get our peat moss, because it comes from the previously unused portion of the coconut. It is Insect-neutral because most garden pests do not enjoy settling in coconut coir, making it yet another line of defense in your integrated pest management system for your garden.
The Air Pots are recyclable, reusable food grade plastic containers that actively enhance the quality of the root systems of plants. This revolutionary approach to containerizing plants and trees produces fabulous, non-spiraling root systems that are impossible to develop in any other available container. Made of recycled HDPE, the Air-Pot is circular in shape with a perforated sidewall. There are no flat surfaces due to the inward and outward pointed cones, which eliminates any chance of starting the spiraling process as well as dramatically increases growth rates.
In a “Drain to Waste” reservoir the nutrient rich solution feeds the plants and the “run-off” gets drained out the bottom of the plants and runs to waste. This ensures that plants get fed only FRESH non-recirculated nutrients every time. The difference between “Drain to Waste” and “Recirculating” reservoirs is as follows: In a recirculating reservoir the nutrient solution starts out complete as per the original recipe contained in the bottles. As the waterings / feedings continue and the plants feed off of the nutrient solution for the course of the week the solution loses key minerals to the plants unique feeding needs. This also causes precipitates to form as certain minerals (now in new molecular arrangements) “lock up” and fall out of solution. Now the original recipe is no longer intact. With “Drain to Waste” this is not the case. The recipe stays intact and the plants always get the complete line of food requirements every time. This provides for healthier, stronger, and faster growth.
