let's let the suppliers and growers of plants know we are fed up with their plug plant nets.
frequently I am seeing these root restricting nets in bigger plants that are not thriving as they should do. Growers/suppliers may claim they biodegrade and don't hamper growth but they DO.
whenever I see them I remove these nets but often when repotted before sale they cannot be seen.
sure, they are easier for growers when potting but for is, the consumers, they produce poorer plants. Roots do not grow well and often produce dry small root systems. I find nets in large potted plants and definitely think plants struggle and die prematurely because of them.
Say NO to netting
