Why Choose Root Nurse?

One of Eden Horticulture's latest rebrands in 2020 is Root Nurse, which has grown as one of the hydroponic industry’s leading fabric containers. Now, Root Nurse is better than ever, including printed retail packaging, hanging hooks for pots, and improved product design.

Ideal for any style of growing and available in three varied styles, Root Nurse Original, Root Nurse Ice White and Root Nurse Square - the Fabric Pots are a great eco-friendly alternative to standard plastic pots, and each style has their own amazing features which speak for themselves. 


Root Nurse Original - Root Nurse Original is where it all started! A reliable and high-quality fabric container which is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles. Available in sizes from 1L to 76L.

Root Nurse Ice White - Root Nurse Ice White Fabric Pots are the best choice for reflecting light in a hydroponic setup. White is better at reflecting light so the Ice White helps to maintain a lower root zone temperature. Available in sizes from 1L to 76L.

Root Nurse Square - Root Nurse Square Pots include bamboo holders in each corner of the container - perfect to add extra strength for your customers’ hydroponic operation! Available in sizes from 1L to 76L.

If you have never heard of Root Nurse before, or you are looking to find out some more information, here are five reasons why you should always choose Root Nurse in a hydroponic setup. 


1. Environmentally Friendly

Root Nurse is doing its bit for the environment! All Root Nurse Fabric Pots are environmentally and economically friendly. These fabric pots have been manufactured from recycled plastic bottles and fibres. Economically-friendly products contribute to saving the environment by not using harmful materials. All Root Nurse styles are a great eco-friendly alternative to standard plastic pots.

2.  Amazing Structure

Root Nurse containers have been tried and tested to ensure they are the best that they can be. The lightweight yet durable structure of the fabric container aids in the development of healthy root growth in plants. Root Nurse Square Pots feature bamboo holders on each corner to allow users to add extra strength and plant supports when needed, without obstructing the root zone. 

3. Superior Drainage and Aeration

The fabric pots from Root Nurse achieve superior drainage and aeration by air pruning the plants’ roots. This allows them to form multi-branched roots, making stronger and more efficient root systems, and alleviating the problem of root-circling, which is often found when using traditional plastic pots. The lightweight fabric material promotes aeration which allows the roots to become stronger, and results in stronger plants, guaranteed! 

4. Reusable and Biodegradable

Each root pouch is suitable for roughly three years, which means the grower can continue to reuse it! The Fabric pots are also biodegradable. The manufacture of biodegradable products results in far less environmental pollution. When Root Nurse pots break down, they do so into harmless, nontoxic elements.

5. Practical

Root Nurse Original, Root Nurse Ice White and Root Nurse Square pots are so practical because each style comes in a variety of sizes, and suits almost all types and sizes of plant. The sizes are available from 1 litre, all the way up to 76 litres.


Root Nurse Fabric Pots are the number one choice for fabric containers in the hydroponic industry, as well as being an environmentally friendly option, and a great alternative to plastic pots.
