Created out of a balance of recycled plastic bottles and natural fibers, Root Pouch fabric grow bags are a natural choice for nurseries, farms and greenhouses that want to reduce transplant shock and promote healthy root systems. Cannabis growers favor these fabric grow bags for a robust “flower stage”. They last several seasons above ground, or break down in about 3 to 4 years used in-ground. Above-ground use promotes air pruning. Pot-in-pot use stimulates root entrapment instead of root circling, leading to healthier growth.

Growers operating with a sustainability model use Root Pouch fabric grow bags because they have the least environmental impact being made from recycled plastic water bottles. Each pallet of Root Pouch fabric bags 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 bags, it takes 6 trucks to transport the same size of plastic pots.

Fabric Grow Bags: Root Pouch Durable Stitching Grey 15 Gallon with Handles
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.

Root Pouch is the only grow bag manufacturer that uses both recycled plastic fibers along with natural fibers, vegetable fibers or bamboo. These natural fibers mixed into the netting of the fabric will retain moisture much more evenly around the pot. While allowing the fabric to breathe, it is also now helping in cooling down the plant in summer as well as allowing the plant to stay warm in the winter, similar to a blanket surrounding the tender roots.
Root Pouch Grey Fabric Grow Bags for Root Entrapment Pruning for In-Ground Growing
There is air root pruning where the weave of the fabric bag is loose enough for roots to squeeze through and then stop growing once the root hits the air. At that time, the roots will signal the tree to send out additional roots. Then there is Entrapment Root Pruning where the weave of the fabric is too tight to allow for any root tips to squeeze through and instead traps them, so they send a signal to the tree to send out additional roots. Entrapment is a much healthier method of pruning roots if growing in-ground. While both methods will produce the same great non-circling dense fibrous root system, root entrapment prevents the roots from penetrating their bags and growing into the surrounding soil. Roots contained in bags eliminate transplant shock.
