Root Pouch Degradable Pots

Less expensive and friendlier to the environment than standard nursery pots!

Do you want a nursery pot that is cheaper than the standard plastic pot - as low as 35 cents per pot? Do you worry about the environmental impact of those plastic pots? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Root Pouches are the perfect choice!


Every year, millions of plastic pots find their way into landfills. The petroleum and other fossil fuels used to create these pots, along with their inability to break down, result in a negative impact on our environment. Root Pouch uses its award-winning technology to convert a mixture of recycled natural fibers and recycled bottles into their patented grow bags. These materials, otherwise destined for our landfills, see a second life as a lightweight, breathable geotextile. Root Pouch then uses this textile to create plant pots that degrade (break down) once you plant them in the ground.

These fabric pots are wonderful for plants. They are breathable, so roots stay cool in summer and do not suffocate from over-watering. The fabric material allows for water permeation, so there is sufficient drainage without the need for holes in the pot. This product is perfect for in-ground as well as above ground growing. The uses are endless! Since they are made from flexible fabric, they do not chip or break like standard pots. You no longer have to clean up broken shards as you do with clay pots.

Awesome Grow Bags

LK from NY wrote (May 16, 2018):

This is the third year I am using these bags to grow my tomatoes, eggplants, beans & cucumbers. This allows all of your plants to air prune (strong root system). My yield of veggies is amazing!

Root Pouch 18-24 month

R&S Nursery from wrote (February 26, 2018):

We think they are a really good product. We like the ideal of air root pruning. The main drawback for us would be that they are a little harde to fill than a plastic container.

4 Stars

Great pots.

Tim from CA wrote (February 23, 2018):

3 gallons are a little smaller than a traditional 3 gallon nursery pot. Otherwise, great product.

Great Grow Pots and Biodegradable!

Horticultural Expert from CO wrote (February 05, 2018):

Personally I go through a few thousand of these a year, I use them for 4 to 6 months and throw them away after I harvest. The plants love them. And they always get a brand new clean pot, and we never have to wash pots!
