Smart Soil Separator (Pack of 4)

Keep your container plants growing strong with the Smart Soil Separator!

Traditional containers restrict vital oxygen needed at the root level creating an environment for pathogens and circling roots.

For years gardeners have added stones to the bottom of their plant containers to remedy drainage issues, and promote root development. This is an example of conventional reasoning, based on good intentions that current research has proven to be counter- productive. Roots will become entangled in the rocks, blocking drainage and making the plant vulnerable to pathogens.

And here’s the science…

Studies at Oregon State University concluded, “Circling roots (in potted) plants have difficulty getting enough water and nutrients shortening a plant’s life span.” The Smart Soil Separator creates a permanent pocket of air at the bottom of the growing container.

Most people understand that plants need oxygen. Many do not realise how important oxygen is to the plant’s root system.

According to Washington State University… “Circling roots are ‘burned’ off or pruned when exposed to air. This causes the plant to constantly produce new and highly branched roots”. It is this system of finely branched feeder roots that carry nutrients to the plant. This encourages vigorous plant growth.

No more rocks!

Would you like your potted plants to be the envy of your friends? Are your plants not doing as well as you would like? Thankfully, you can add the Smart Soil Separator to an existing planted pot or when transplanting to a new container.

A potting container where the bottom measurement falls between 5″ to 7.5″ diameter with at least one drain hole and a saucer is recommended. Simply adjust the tabs on the outside of the Smart Soil Separator to fit your pot, remove the plant from its container, trim any circling roots and re-pot adding a good quality potting mix as necessary.

No more guesswork!

The Smart Soil Separator takes the guesswork out of watering by using a sub-irrigation wicking chamber. Potting mix is placed in the wicking chamber where it comes in contact with the water below.

The plant’s roots pull up the moisture as it is needed. This means it waters plants the way nature intended. The Smart Soil Separator is a small thing that you can use to revive struggling house plants. If you’re interested in the concept of soil separation, the creation of permanent airspace / aeration to roots and the upward watering of plants then you may also be interested in our Urbin Grower Self Watering Organic Growing System.
