Root Maker – Root Trapper II 7 Gallon (WG9070)

RootTrapper®II is an attractive, white, soft-sided container that benefits your plants. Because the container is white, the soil temperature is reduced and the root zone is cooled, which leads to greater root growth and less water usage. The RootTrapper® Container stimulates root branching by trapping root tips. Through the root trapping process, RootTrapper®II ensures that the root tips are always branching. These RootTrapper® Containers are more effective than fabric containers that air prune because they do not require the root tip to dry out. Fabric containers that air prune commonly stay wet due to their contact with the ground or trays. The results are circling roots or roots that grow out of the bags.

• Conserve water
• Keep the root zone cool
• Prune efficiently and effectively forcing root branching
• Prune roots even with continuous irrigation
• Use with any media absorbent or repellent
• No salt build up

Root Maker

RootMaker Original Root-Pruning System, designed to create fibrous, non-circling root systems horizontally and vertically at all phases of production to equip plants for transplanting success. RootMaker’s products aren’t just “containers” but rather root production tools. Each step complements the next, building upon the previous fibrous root system. A fibrous root system means a greater root tip surface area and translates to a greater efficiency in the absorption of water and nutrients; an increase in growth rate, establishment, and vigor; a higher transplant survive-ability; and ultimately, superior performance for your customers.

Root Trapper II (Case)

Root wrapping in containers is a serious problem. In some cases, wrapped roots can actually kill plants. Root-tip-trapping is another non-chemical method of pruning roots. The RootTrapper II works by utilizing a unique fabric; much like using velcro on the root tips. When the root tip grows into the fabric it gets stuck (or trapped) at which point the root is forced to branch. These bags can prune up to 100 root tips in just 1 square inch of fabric! The white lining not only makes these bags much more durable, but it also reflects heat keeping root systems cool. RootTrapper II containers are perfect for pruning roots in hydroponic systems utilizing media like perlite or hydroton (clay pebbles) due to the fact that these containers do not air prune the roots. Because irrigation is so frequent in indoor hydroponic systems, air pruning is not possible; therefore the use of RootTrapper II containers will help create healthy fibrous root systems.
