Download the Comprehensive Study:
The roots in the Octopot were established in the fabric Gro Sleeve portion and had established a root system in the Hydro Reservoir as well. This dual root system consists of terrestrial roots in the Gro Sleeve and hydroponic roots in the Hydro Reservoir. The Octopot plant’s root crown was the largest of the three.
Root systems were observed after they dried out. The roots in the plastic pot had spread to the edge of the container and had begun to circle the pot. The root crown, the portion where roots emanated from the plant cutting, was solid but the smallest of the three.
The roots in the fabric pot reached the edge of the container and branched at the tips. The root crown was larger than in the plastic pot.
