Air Pots vs Fabric Pots vs Plastic Pots - Wilson Garden

What is an air pot?

An air pot promotes this healthy root structure with just what you'd expect: air. With air pots, you can use any type of potting mix and give your plant optimal drainage. Air pots create aeration and excellent airflow around the root system, allowing more oxygen for healthy root development.


Air pots are made from plastic. Air pots are a great way to keep flowers and other potted plants hydrated. Air pots free your plants from the confines of a traditional container and allow you to grow much larger plants. An air pot will work with just about any kind of plant -- ivy, herbs, flowering houseplants.


If you leave your plants in a bucket, they will become waterlogged and the root system will start to rot. By using air pots, you can avoid watering your plants too often by regularly draining the water that has been collected at the bottom of the pot.

Smart Pots vs Air Pots

Smart pot vs air pot: Are air pots better than smart pots? The answer to that question depends on numerous factors. Air pots are taller/thinner and made of plastic, while smart pots are wider/shorter and are made of fabric.


An air pot is a plastic container with holes around the sides. Air pots are used for growing plants indoors and outdoors. Air pots allow a lot of air flow, which is needed for healthy plant growth. Fabric pots are made of polymer fabric that allow excellent water drainage and air circulation through the medium.


Air pots provide great advantages over fabric pots. They are lighter, and because there is no fabric, they have no risk of having roots trapped underneath them. Air pruning pots also dry out faster than fabric pots; this keeps your plants healthier as there is less risk of over-watering.


The air pot is designed to create an environment that is similar to when it's sitting in soil, so it will adequately provide enough oxygen for the plant. As air pots let the roots grow in free air instead of potting soil, they do not cause plant problems such as “root rot” or root diseases which are caused by soil-borne virus.


Air Pots can provide better aeration to roots because there is more room for good air flow around the roots. Air pots are a great way to store plants and make them last longer. Air pots differ from other containers because they leave room for air and water to circulate among your plant’s roots, which is better for the plant than soil potted in regular pots.


Smart pots are made from breathable fabric, can help improve the root environment for plants, they allow roots to grow naturally. Smart pots can also be used in multiple ways, from seed starter potting to transplanting and fruit/vegetable growing.


The benefit of smart pots is that they are easy to move around and clean. Fabric pots are made of durable, washable fabric. With fabric pots, you can easily fold them up to store them when not in use. You can easily clean the dirt off of it. Finally, fabric pots can be easily customized with a variety of designs.

What is a smart pot?

Smart pots, also known as fabric pots, are a new type of material which can prevent root rot. They are made of non-woven fabric which allows water to evaporate more efficiently. Fabric plant pots are soft sided containers and they seep water through the sides. So the roots are exposed to moisture, but not sitting in water.

Fabric Pots vs Plastic

Fabric vs plastic pots: Are fabric pots better than plastic? While both plastic and fabric pots are reusable, plastic pots typically won't maintain their quality for as long as cloth pots.


Traditional plastic pots restrict air flow and can make your plant's roots sweat and rot. Fabric grow bags are made of non woven fabric that allow roots to breathe.


Fabric pots are lightweight and breathable, which allows for good root aeration and keeps plants healthy. We use plastic pots for larger plants and in our hydroponic systems.


As we know, both of them have pros and cons. Which kind of flowerpot to choose depends on the plants you grow. Whether you’re growing herbs or flowers, our pots fit the bill.

Air Pots vs. Smart Pots for Growing Cannabis

When it comes to growing marijuana, there are two main types of pots that can be used to grow your plants: air pots and smart pots.


Air pots are a great choice for cannabis growers who looking to increase the size of their plants and improve yields. The main benefit of using an air pot is that it allows roots to breathe, which helps prevent root rot. They can also be used in conjunction with other growing mediums like coco coir, perlite and more.


Smart pots allow air to pass through them so that your plants get enough oxygen too! Smart pots are especially important for growing cannabis outdoors because they give your plants enough room for their roots to spread out and thrive even when it's hot outside or there isn't much sun available to them.


The smart pots come in various sizes, so you can pick one that fits your needs best. The smart pot is reusable, so when it starts getting too small for your plant or if you want to start over with another seedling, all you need to do is empty it out and let it dry before reusing again!
