EZ Swap Pots F.A.Q.
Nothing could be more important than root health and fabric pots guarantee just that. Its proven fabric pots offer a larger, more fibrous root system by eliminating root circling. Fabric pots also provide better oxygen/air flow to the root system, temperature control (staying cooler in higher temperates and warming faster during cool seasons). When you have a larger healthier root system you are going to have less pests, disease, and a much better harvest.
Our snaps are sourced here in America and are heavy duty, BPA free plastic snaps made to be used over and over again. I have personally been using some of my 1st prototypes for over a year now and haven’t had an issue with the snap breaking or pulling through the fabric. Here is a durability test I did with my EZ Swap Pot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQ2PL3v01yY
I’ve personally switched to fabric pots in the summer of 2016 and have been using the same ones since. Since I don’t use bottle nutrients, I simply wash my pots with a hose which will make them last longer. Based on leaders in the industry they should last 3-5 years depending on growing conditions and exposure to weather elements.
We suggest rinsing them with a garden hose outside to knock off the majority of soil and any built up salts from nutrient use. Then we prefer to give them a hand wash using 25-30% vinegar to water to finish the process. They can be machine washed with COLD water and some bleach. NEVER PUT THE FABRIC POTS IN THE DRYER OR NEAR HEAT! Always hang dry and and store indoors somewhere dry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2tJMGkX_qY
In short Yes! With more oxygen and air flow at the root-zone, your plant will naturally use more nutrients and water. Coupled with more evaporation (If no extra preventative measures are taken) will lead to more frequent waterings. The nice thing about fabric pots is they act as a wick and can be watered from the bottom to extend the time between waterings. We are working to vlog about tips on how you can take preventative measures to help insure you get all the benefits of fabric pots without the hassle of extra watering! Check out our “YouTube Page” OR in the mean time look into SIPS Container Gardening and Mulching Container Gardens.
Absolutely! Our fabric pots offer the same great advantage no matter what your growing style is. The fabric has an excellent wicking capability making it great for many hydroponic applications.
EZ Swap Liners F.A.Q.
Our fabric is made of a premium, heavyweight non-woven polypropylene geotextile. This material is UV resistant, BPA free, and chemically stable so it won’t leach anything harmful into your plants. Our fabric resists rot and breakdown. The best part is these are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their usability!
Not at all! You can simply fill them just as if they were coco liners with potting soil and your favorite plants!! Check out our video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zHMgvBBWEE
At the minimum 3 growing seasons! After that the UV breaks them down and they start acting more like coco liners where they leak more water and dry out faster.
The fabric liner acts like a sponge and absorbs water 1st before allowing any to drain through. Unlike coco liners ours won’t leak nearly as much and will use less water to get the job done!
Luckily EZ Swap Liners Already Retain Moisture Longer Than Traditional Coco Liners. A Few Tips For Water Retention Would Be To Add Extra Perlite & Compost To The Potting Soil. Another Great Option Is To Add A Diaper Or Some Cardboard To The Bottom Of Your Liners Before Filling With Soil!
100% Yes! We hand craft and sew each one here in the Midwest.
