Rootex bags are copper coated on the inside of the bag and under normal use. They are used commercially to grow larger trees that are transplanted after 5 to 6 years. Rootex enables the trees to be moved at any time of the year without damage to the root system. The rootex bags are kept slightly out of the ground to prevent roots from growing across the surface.
The copper coating is on the inside of the Rootex bags and under normal use very few roots penetratethe bag. Rootex bagsare ideal for use as a liner in a pot to stop root circling. The pictures show a Hebe, Midsummer Beauty, grown in a bag inside a container for five year. Roots are very healthy and fibrous allowing water to betaken up by roots throughout the bag.
