No More Root Rot

Root Zone Oxygen technology delivers vital oxygen to your roots to boost growth and stop root rot, the #1 cause of houseplant deaths.

Air-Cleaning Power

Roots exposed to the air remove up to 2X more toxins from the air. It's called the root zone-soil effect, and it's been confirmed by NASA!

No-Stress Watering

Naked Root's unique self-watering system let's you water on a regular schedule, so you don't need a horticulture degree to grow happy plants.

200% More Roots!

Air root pruning sparks up to 200% more feeder root growth and prevents root-bound plants that need frequent up-potting.

Ideal for miniature houseplants, like:

  • Small succulents
  • Baby cacti
  • Baby tears
  • String of pearls
  • Donkey’s tail
  • Wooly thyme
  • Seedlings or cuttings
  • Small herb plants
  • Garden seedlings

Stop guessing when to water

Our unique easy-care watering system takes the guesswork out of growing healthy plants

Fill the high-capacity reservoir with water

Let your plant thrive for 2-3 weeks

Refill on a regular schedule (no more guessing!)

Naked Root users see a significant increase in plant growth (and health)! Our secret? Air root pruning.

Root pruning Saves Lives!

In Naked Root root pruning pots, plants don't grow thick, fleshy roots that spiral the planter and choke the plant. Instead, they grow hundreds of thin root hairs, creating up to 200% more surface area. See the difference for yourself:

FAQs

How is Naked Root different from other self-watering planters?

Most self-watering planters use a large reservoir of water below the plant that's absorbed from the bottom-up, slowly over time. Water is translocated to the soil by either a cotton rope or a narrow column of soil. If there is always water in your planter, your soil can stay wet and without oxygen (anaerobic) for weeks, risking root rot.

So Naked Root acts more like a fabric grow bag, suspending the soil in the air. Ventilation slits allow water to penetrate to all roots (not just the bottom ones) so water is absorbed more quickly. Once water is absorbed, oxygen rushes in to facilitate a water-oxygen exchange, replicating the process that happens in nature.

Does soil fall out of the aeration slots?

A little at first. When potting up your plant for the first time, some soil will fall through. And for the first few waterings, a small amount of soil will continue to spill into the outer pot. Simply rinse out the outer pot to clean it. After the first few waterings, the soil will settle in and will stay in place.

How often do I need to water my plant?

Most indoor houseplants will need to be watered about every 2 weeks with the Naked Root planter. You simply fill up the reservoir and let the planter do the work. Some plant types (like succulents) will need water less frequently. Check out our how-to-use directions for detailed watering instructions for specific plant types.
