Geopot 11L Cloth Transplant Pot
Easy access pots: Velcro-Seamed Geopots allow the side of the container to open. This makes for easy removal of the root ball during transplanting. Thus transplanting is quick and easy and reduces any transplanting shock.
What are GeoPots made of?
UV Stabilized Geo-textile Polypropylene fibre that is heat bonded on one side. This very durable geotextile fabric is porous. All of the seams in the Geopot product line are sewn with a high quality bonded polyester thread that will withstand constant moisture and UV exposure.

What does it do?
This breathable fabric plant container air prunes your plants' roots when they reach the end of the container. The air root pruning process forces the roots to branch out with more fibrous feeder roots which are much more efficient in taking up water and nutrients. The porous fabric allows air into the root zone and provides great drainage creating a healthy environment for the roots. Aeration of the root zone allows your plants to reach their fullest potential.
How long will these fabric containers last?
They will last about 2-3 years even with periodical machine washes but the life of GeoPots varies between each user. For small container users with an indoor project washing between cycles, the GeoPot can last as long as 5 cycles! Mid size growers could be using anywhere between a 20-45 gallon a 3 year lifespan is possible. For those big time farmers that trial all the way up to 400 gallon it is recommended pots are renewed after about 2-3 years.
What is the difference between black and tan colours of GeoPots?
Our black GeoPot original is great for warming up those roots in the cool morning air as well as concealing dirt runoff or residue from your plants. Tan is a great alternative for your garden to achieve a more blended feel. We recommend the tan for asthetics and décor as well as blending. The tans provide about a 2 or 3 degree temperature difference in hotter climate area. Both of these designs will be less hot on your developing root zone when compared to plastic or terracotta due to the constant air flow through our fabric GeoPot.
How to wash and sterilise GeoPots between uses:
Thoroughly clean the GeoPot with a vacuum cleaner or by hand of all dirt and other mediums. Wash out with either warm or cold water, by hand or in a washing machine. It is even possible to use a jet wash or hose. Use Oxyclean or a peroxide mixture to sterilize as these will leave behind little to no residue or harsh perfumes after you are finished.
Leave to air dry and store away for next time.
