Santa & Cole presents the Air-Pots TM, a challenge for the future
The last and new bet of Santa & Cole Forestry Division is the Air-potTM container. Much more than a simple container, as it carries out air-root pruning. The plant develops a dense system of roots and one of the main problems of container growing, the circling of the roots, is avoided. The shape of the container’s walls leads each root to a hole where the increase in air dehydrates the tip, pruning it and stimulating the branching of the roots. Each new root follows the same path to the air hole and the process is continuously repeated. The plant thus quickly develops a great mass of fibrous roots positioned toward the outside.
