Professional Growers Know The Container Matters
The planter you use will help the growth of your plants. Smart Pot fabric planters are the result of 30 years of experience serving growers and gardeners of all kinds. Our unique containers are advancements in technology that enhance the growth of your flowers, vegetables, herbs, and other plants.
More Roots Produce More Fruits
Remove the plastic container from a plant; you will find roots circling. Root circling is bad for plants. It stunts growth. With Smart Pot aeration fabric containers, roots reach the fabric side and stop. Then they send outside roots instead of circling. It means more roots in the center of the pot to take up water and nutrients from the soil. This promotes healthy plant growth.
Pruning Over Circling
When your plant hits the side of the Smart Pot, it stops. The root then initiates lateral root branching as fibrous feeder roots begin to grow from the main root. As the process repeats, the plant develops a full, fibrous root structure that fills the entire container area. Alternatively, when the root reaches the side of a rigid plastic container, it continues growing longer and starts circling the container – with little to no pruning. As the root circles, moisture and nutrients traveling in the root have further to feed the plant. Plant growth inevitably slows.
Optimized for Bigger & More Fruit
In case after case, plants grow faster in a Smart Pot than in other traditional containers. With more finger roots, the entire system can absorb and take in more moisture and nutrients. And the plant becomes fuller, with more branching, buds, and fruit. A Smart Pot, filled with a healthy soil mix, is often a better place to grow than an in the ground. With the Smart Pot, ideal nutrition and ideal drainage help your plants thrive.
Plastic containers get very hot in the summer when exposed to direct sunlight all day. The temperature inside the pot can easily exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit on the hot side of the pot. This causes root damage, stunts growth, and stresses the plant.
The Smart Pot aerates the soil. That means there is airflow through the container walls and your potting mix. This results in cooler temperatures that don’t damage your roots.
No More Overwatering
Smart Pots' patented fabric is durable enough to withstand the elements and porous enough to release excess water. So porous, in fact, they’ve become the pot of choice for many hydroponics gardeners. But “Smart” enough to distribute moisture evenly. In Smart Pot planters, moisture moves by capillarity – going from wetter areas to drier areas throughout the pot. So you don’t get the “crispy tops, soggy bottoms” experienced in standard pots or all the other drainage issues that come with in-ground gardens. Even water distribution and excellent drainage mean no more root rot from overwatering – just lots and lots of healthy roots and

How do I clean my Smart Pot?
After use, dump out the soil and let the bag dry. After a few days of being dry, the dust and small roots will easily brush off. For most people, this is good enough. At this point, the Smart Pot folds easily for storage. However, a lot of our customers will wash the bags in OxyClean or peroxide to sterilize. They use a washing machine or dip the bag in a tub. Do not put the Bags in a dryer.
Why is the Smart Pot better than hard-sided containers?
The Smart Pot aerates and plastic does not. Aeration stops root circling and releases heat, helping your plant build a better root structure. Better roots will give you a better plant.
Why does the Smart Pot have a fabric bottom?
To help you grow a better plant. The Smart Pot is made with a heavy porous fabric bottom that gives a plant intimate ground contact. This ground contact helps the plant maintain a ground temperature, as opposed to a plastic container temperature. Also, small roots may penetrate the bottom of the Smart Pot. These roots will help intake moisture and nutrients.
