The Air-Pot container is just one part of a total growing system. To reap all its potential benefits it is essential to use a suitable compost mix and give the plant sufficient water.
Lack of aeration and poor drainage are big problems when growing in traditional containers. However no such problems exist with the Air-Pot system. Increased oxygenation means that the compost can be compacted in the containers without becoming anaerobic. More compost means more nutrient for the plant.
