Best Practices for Using Smart Pots by Monica Stockbridge

Ever heard of a Smart Pot? No, it’s not high-tech cannabis. Smart Pots are the world’s original fabric plant container, providing an alternative to plastic plant pots.

Smart Pots were first manufactured in 1984 by High Caliper Growing, the inventors of root-pruning technology, a practice that increases yields by improving water and nutrient absorption.

Smart Pots help professional growers and hobbyist gardeners develop a better root structure and stronger plant.

Fabric pots are also ideal for growing cannabis. “Cannabis should be grown at the highest standard of quality, free from heavy metals and other harmful chemicals,” says Smart Pots sales manager Dustin Locks.

“The growing practices should be environmentally responsible with the least amount of waste and benefit not only people but the planet.”

Smart Pots are making a name for themselves all over, including in Illinois’ Cresco Labs. 

Here are a few best practices for growing high-quality, high-yield plants using fabric containers:

Avoid contaminants from imported products

Not all fabric pots are created equal. In fact, some that come from overseas contain heavy metals that contaminate the end product and leach into waterways. These contaminants can affect the end product, which could fail lab-testing and result in waste and financial loss. 

Be mindful of waste going into landfills

Many cultivators are environmentally conscious and highly aware of waste going
into landfills. Aim for maximum yields and minimal waste by choosing fabric pots that can be used over and over again without ripping
or fraying.  

Choose U.S.-made products

Products made overseas may be delayed during shipping, and might not offer custom designs to fit your needs. Instead, look for products made in the U.S. for faster shipping and easier custom ordering.  

Maximize your plants’ yield

Fabric plant pots help maximize a plant’s performance and increase yield by allowing the root zone to create a healthy, fibrous, and dense root mass.

The plants never get root bound and are able to properly drain, which reduces root rot. Plus, fabric pots release heat from the growing medium and allow oxygen in, which dramatically benefits the plant as well as the living microbes.  

Made in Oklahoma City with stringent quality control standards, Smart Pots are BPA-free, lead-free, and extremely durable.

Plus, you can clean them in a commercial washing machine or pressure wash them. They offer
a sustainable solution for an often plastic-dependent industry. ϖ

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]

University of Sydney to Offer Free Cannabis Testing by Johnny Green

The University of Sydney is launching a fairly robust study in an attempt to, as the university describes it, “investigate cannabis consumption, behaviours, and attitudes among users.” Part of the study involves offering free, anonymous cannabis testing for people that cultivate their own cannabis in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
