NEW POTS

AND PROCEDURES

OctaPot™

 

OctaPot is a new 260 ml forestry tube. It has 88 cusps to guide root tips to 5 mm holes for air root-pruning - using 3DARP (three dimensional air root pruning).

OctaPot A is the alpha version - an octagonal tube 180 mm tall formed from sheet PET plastic 0.33 mm thick. It weighs only 12 gr but is surprisingly strong. A single clip joins the first and last of the 9 columns of cusps.

It is completely reusable.

 

The alpha version is in production now. Shipments of 1000 pots (12 kg) are being mailed to participating nurseries now. A 50 pack is available now – loosely stacked in a Danbar 50 position frame. An adaptor for a precise fitting 50 pack in a Danbar frame is nearly ready. Alpha prototypes are available now.
