Nurseries and grow rooms purchase in bulk Root Pouch 1-pint fabric seedling bags because it supports excellent root development and propagation in budding seedlings. The unique square bottom of the bag fits nicely into propagation trays. When you turn it inside out, it becomes a traditional circular-bottomed fabric seedling bag. Thin, breathable and flexible, they encourage even watering, drainage and air pruning for robust plant growth. Built to last one season from a combination of natural fiber and recycled plastic bottles, they’re an excellent choice for growing businesses. Request a wholesale quote here.
Growers operating with a sustainability model use Root Pouch grow bags because they have the least environmental impact being made from recycled plastic water bottles. Each pallet of Root Pouch fabric pots diverts an average of 10,200 plastic water bottles from the landfills and oceans. The carbon footprint of transportation & storage is reduced: for every truck of Root Pouch pots, it takes 6 trucks to transport the same size of plastic pots.
Root Pouch 1-Pint Thin Black: The Best Choice for Propagation
This propagation fabric bag prunes roots by entrapment rather than air pruning. Air pruning fabrics allow the root to squeeze through the fabric. Root Pouch traps the root tips in the fabric crating dense fibrous root systems while containing the roots within the bag. Young plants can then be planted directly into the next shift up pot or into the soil with zero transplant shock. The fabric material will degrade in 12-18 months. The propagation grow bag is uniquely designed in the form of a square bottom, so it fits standard propagation trays. When turned inside out, the fabric propagation bag forms a round bottom like traditional pots. Perfect for seedlings, clones, veg and young plants.
Root Pouch 1-Pint Propagation Bag: Durable Stitching
Unique to the industry, Root Pouch uses a type of stitch called “Industrial Lock Stitch” for the topstitching of the fabric bag. Side seam stitching utilizes “French Stitch Seams”. The Industrial Lock Stitch is named for its use in outdoor products where unraveling is a concern for the overall wear and tear of a product. Outdoor products require the ‘rough and tumble’ durability to withstand abuse. Other grow bag companies use an “Overlock Stitch” which is commonly used in the garment industry. How many times have you had a stitch unravel on your clothing? The same thing happens on grow bags using the Overlock Stitch. It is a stitch commonly used in items such as clothing where its functionality is more aesthetic than utilitarian. Industrial Stitching along with durable custom woven fabrics make Root Pouch the most durable fabric bag on the market.
Are these washable?
Yes. Recommended to use earth-friendly detergent and then air dry.
Why are natural fibers beneficial in Grow Rooms? Natural fiber blend offers thermal consistency and retains the distribution of water throughout the fabric wall which lessons water usage.
How is recycled plastic material safe? The PETE plastic is melted back to a sterile liquid state and then spun into fibers that are mixed with natural fibers which degrade over time. Because the plastic is remelted, it is once again sterile making it a great choice for growing plants for human consumption. No new petroleum is used so none of the pouches contain any toxins. Each fabric bag is BPA-free and UV resistant.
