Choosing the right container for gardening is equally important as picking out the right potting soil and plant varieties. The material and shape of a container are vital to the plants’ life cycle. The investment of time and energy, as well as environmental impact, also need to be factored into efficient planning. DYNAPOTS are lightweight cylindrical pots that come in a variety of sizes; they are a lightweight and collapsible and perfect solution for any seasoned gardener. The structural makeup of the DYNAPOTS and the cause and effect of breathability and moisture flow offer distinct advantages over traditional pots and containers.
BIGGER THE ROOT, BIGGER THE HARVEST
If a plant is left in a plastic pot, roots grow outward and inevitably hit the wall of the pot which results in a few large roots wrapping and circling around the edges and eventually chokes itself out. This stunted growth leads to a smaller harvest.
How can we maintain a healthy root structure for potent growth and abundant yields of plants? Enter Air Pruning.
Air pruning is a technique that exposes root tips to relatively dry air which stops their growth. When the root tips stop growing, the root develops a series of lateral roots – secondary roots that branch out from the originals within the growing media and spread until they reach the thin layer of air at the walls. The cycle keeps repeating while the plant is producing smaller, more fibrous roots through air pruning.
IMPROVES ROOT STRUCTURE
With DYNAPOTS, the plant’s root mass will be housed within that container and the roots are a plant’s direct connection to water and nutrients uptake. This flourishing increase in root mass which increases more area of root matter contributes to the accelerated growth of the plant and ensures prolific yields.
AERATION + TEMPERATURE CONTROL
In plastic containers, heat can reach up to 125 degrees Fahrenheit; with no place to escape, it “cooks up” the roots. DYNAPOTS offer heightened breathability to allow essential airflow into the soil. These pots regulate temperature through evaporative cooling and absorption of solar radiation. This aeration provides not only a healthy environment for the roots and supports microbe and essential bacteria but also gives roots adequate access to oxygen to diffuse carbon dioxide away from the roots caused by the respiration of root cells and microorganisms. DYNAPOTS’ ability to release heat allows plants to continually develop healthy root growth despite excruciating hot summer days.
BETTER DRAINAGE TO FIGHT ROOT ROT
Traditional plastic and clay containers have poor drainage mechanisms that result in various soil-borne diseases responsible for root rot. DYNAPOTS fight root by preventing overwatering. These containers are made to drain excess water and keep moisture at an ideal level for healthy plant growth.
