Most growers have heard the name Smart Pot®, but what many don’t know is that Smart Pot is the world’s original fabric plant container, providing a superior alternative to plastic plant pots.
Smart Pot fabric containers were first manufactured in 1984 in Oklahoma City, OK by High Caliper Growing, Inc. High Caliper Growing, Inc. is the inventor of root-pruning technology, a practice that increases yields by improving water and nutrient absorption. Smart Pot containers help professional growers and gardeners develop a healthier root structure and stronger plant.
But did you know Smart Pot fabric containers are also ideal for growing cannabis? “Cannabis should be grown at the highest standard of quality, free from heavy metals and other harmful chemicals,” says Smart Pots sales manager Dustin Locks. “The growing practices should be environmentally responsible with the least amount of waste and benefit not only people but the planet.”
Here are a few best practices for growing high-quality, high-yield plants using fabric containers:
Avoid contaminants from imported products
Not all fabric pots are manufactured the same. In fact, some fabric pots from overseas contain heavy metals that can contaminate the plant and leach into waterways. These contaminants can affect the cannabis plant, which could fail lab-testing and result in waste and financial loss. The Smart Pot fabric gets tested, and the results always come back showing no signs of heavy metal, they are BPA Free and Lead Free.
Proudly made in USA – No Shipping Delays!
Products made overseas may be delayed during shipping and might not offer custom designs to fit your needs. Instead, look for products made in the U.S. for faster shipping and easier custom ordering. Smart Pot is based in Oklahoma City and has product in stock, ready to ship now. Need a custom size to fit with your grow operation? Smart Pot can manufacture almost any size or shape you need.

Durable, won’t fall apart in a middle of a grow
Smart Pot has been in business for 38 years and their suppliers are based in the USA. Quality control plays a huge factor for the company as every Smart Pot is inspected in Oklahoma City, OK. Smart Pot fabric containers are more durable compared to other fabric pots and will hold up through an entire grow. Many growers reuse their Smart Pots, and even run them through a commercial washing machine to keep them clean and sterile.
Be mindful of waste going into landfills
Many cultivators are environmentally conscious and highly aware of waste going into landfills. Aim for maximum yields and minimal waste by choosing fabric pots that can be used over and over again without ripping or fraying.
Maximize your plants’ yield
Smart Pot fabric planters help maximize a plant’s performance and increase yield by allowing the root zone to create a healthy, fibrous, and dense root mass. The plants never get root bound and can properly drain, which reduces root rot. Plus, fabric pots release heat from the growing medium and allow oxygen in, which dramatically benefits the plant as well as the living microbes.
