Root Pouch Degradable Pots

As low as 32 cents a pot - much cheaper! A more economical and environment-friendly nursery pot!

Plus, since they're lightweight and compact for transport, you save on transportation costs since they require less fuel to ship than plastic! And, save on warehouse space -- these require 40% less storage than plastic pots!


Award winning technology takes a mixture of recycled natural fibers and recycled bottles otherwise destined for our landfills and turns them into a lightweight, breathable geotextile that is then crafted into plant pots that breakdown (degrade) once they are planted in the ground. These fabric pots are wonderful for plants - roots can cool in summer, and not suffocate from over-watering. The fabric material lets water permeate so there's sufficient drainage without holes in the pot.

A healthier alternative for the environment! Every year, millions of plastic pots require petroleum and fossil fuels to be created, and then eventually they are discarded to clog up our landfills. Made from 100% recycled materials, our root pouches can be used, washed, reused, and then even composted when done. Plus, because they're made from flexible fabric, there's no worries about pots chipping or breaking, or having to clean up pot shards like with clay pots. Also available custom order with logo imprints and with handle and no handle options. Sold by the bundle.

4 Stars

eric from HI wrote (May 30, 2012):

I use this for my hot peppers and they loving it...its cheap and space saver at the same time!

4 Stars Satisfied with pouch pots

David C from VA wrote (May 25, 2012):

These pots are working great so far. I've used other more expensive fabric pots and for the money, these are great. The only draw back I can see is you have to use both hands to pick them up compared to small plastic pots that I can pick up with one hand.

4 Stars Great Potential

Greenhouse and Garden manager. from SD wrote (May 24, 2012):

We used the 3 gallon pouches on 90 David Austin bareroot roses in April and they worked great and are bigger then the dimensions claim because they are more flexible then a plastic pot. On the con side they do dry out faster then plastic pots because they are so breathable. I have not planted the roses yet in the gardens so I can't testify to how well the rose will do compared to growing them in plastic pots. Will report later on my results.

5 Stars Root pouches...so far,so good

Janet C from OH wrote (May 22, 2012):

I got these to start a bunch of little tree whips. The great environmental factors convinced me to buy vs.using odds and ends around the farm. So far, they are all they claim, very tough in an above ground nursery situation with excellent drainage. I won't be putting them on the ground until this fall or next spring so final appraisal still to come.
