Because the water comes from the bottom, roots spread out and grow down instead of only out. The tiny holes in the capillary mat's top layer prevents the roots from growing into it but keeps them ready for a new home. To transplant outside or into a bigger pot or bed, just pick up and put the pot on top of your soil or planting mix - no need to dig a hole and cut into the soil’s microbe networks. After the roots have sufficiently decomposed, you can easily lift away your sleeve for re-use.

This kit contains 20 1 Gallon Grassroots Sleeves, and one complete 4'x4' capillary mat system.
