Shorty Soil Saver™
So, it turns out that the root system of cloned plants primarily grow outward instead of downward because of the absence of a taproot. We talked to a bunch of clone-growing experts, and their collective conclusion was that in a larger classic fabric pot you could have up to a foot of wasted soil. No bueno! Wasted time, wasted soil, wasted amenities, and wasted money! Nobody wants that. So, we took our regular Classic Pots and made a really complicated adjustment to solve this issue. (AKA we made the sides shorter.)
Introducing: The Shorty Soil Saver™!
Use the Shorty Soil Saver™ to save a bit of money on your soil!
Just make sure what you’re growing is good for a Shorty. 😉 Our expert clone-growing friends have said that there could be a need for more top-dressing in a Shorty, but that is a great opportunity for more nutrients for the thirsty plants. They’ve also mentioned that the Shorty might be a great choice for growers under time constraints in their season.
The Shorty Soil Saver™ has all the same high-quality features you’d expect from our pots. We’ve got the triple hem, we’ve got the outside double stitched bottom seam, and we’ve got top-notch American-made fabric!
Wondering which plants should be using a Shorty Soil Saver™ instead of a Classic?
Well, that’s a tricky question because there are so many variables. Are you growing from clones or seeds? What varietal are you growing? Here’s a video that might help a few of you.
Now, you ask, what size do I get? We have labeled the Shorty Soil Savers as their ACTUAL gallon size, so that means that a 30 gallon Shorty and a 30 gallon Classic would have different diameters. Here’s a conversion chart to help you pick your pot.
One more thing: can you say Shorty Soil Saver five times fast?
If you’re converting from a Classic Pot style, match the size of your pot base diameter rather than the gallon size. For example, if you’re used to using a 100 gallon pot, convert to a 65 gallon Shorty Soil Saver™. See more on our conversion chart. The whole point is to fill fewer gallons with soil and save money!
