What are the advantages of growing in GeoPot fabric pots?
GeoPot fabric pots enable air root pruning, in which the roots reach the edge of the container and naturally self-prune, creating more lateral branching of fibrous feeder roots. These roots are more productive in the uptake of water and nutrients, resulting in healthier plants that utilize the entire root zone for optimal growth.
In addition, the geotextile material of GeoPot fabric pots encourages better aeration and improved drainage, which provides more oxygen to the roots and helps prevent root rot. The high-quality fabric can be washed and reused for many growing cycles.
What is the difference between your black and tan GeoPot fabric pots?
Both designs provide the same benefits of air root pruning, better drainage, and improved aeration while providing a cooler growing environment for the developing root zone when compared to plastic or terracotta pots.
Our original black GeoPot fabric pots are great for warming up the roots of your plants in the cool morning air as well as concealing dirt runoff or residue from your plants. Our tan GeoPot fabric pots are a great alternative for keeping the soil slightly cooler in hot outdoor climates (about a 2-3 degree difference in temperature compared to the black variety). Also, some growers prefer the tan GeoPot fabric pots for their more natural aesthetic and their ability to blend in with their surroundings.
Do you make custom pots or planters?
We do not make custom fabric pots. If you have a custom raised bed planter request, we require a minimum of 20 units to be purchased, with some size restrictions. Please contact us for more information.
What are GeoPot fabric pots made of?
GeoPot fabric pots are made from durable, UV-treated polypropylene geotextile fabric, and we use moisture and salt-resistant bonded polyester thread for our marine grade stitching. All our materials are chemically stable, inert, and BPA, and heavy metal-free, making them safe for organic gardening.
How long do GeoPot fabric pots last?
Designed with durability in mind, GeoPot fabric pots are constructed to deliver a long-lasting container gardening alternative that can last for at least 5 or 6 growing cycles when kept in good condition and cleaned and stored between use.
How long do your G-Lite fabric pots last?
Our G-Lite fabric pots are recommended for growers who are operating on a tighter budget and want to take advantage of the benefits of growing in our fabric pots at a lower cost. To satisfy this need, they are made of a slightly thinner material that should last for about 2-3 growing cycles.
Will I need to water my plants more often?
With GeoPot fabric pots, you may need to water slightly more frequently than with traditional growing containers due to the improved airflow and drainage. However, your plants will also be more protected from root rot, a potentially lethal condition that can be caused by poor drainage in both indoor and outdoor plants. Plus, improved aeration and drainage means that you will be rewarded with healthier plants and increased yields.
How do I assemble my GeoPlanter raised bed?
The GeoPlanter is framed with PVC to give you a rigid, framed garden bed. It can be assembled by inserting the long and short PVC tubes into the openings and connecting them in the corners with the included 3-way connectors, then adding the vertical tubes to complete the process. Watch our short video tutorial for our recommended approach to easily assembling your GeoPlanter with no tools necessary!
