About

 My project

Motivation began when I damaged several trees I’d grown from seed while transplanting them.  The “root balls” stuck to the pots making it impossible to disengage the plant from the pot without damaging the root system.  When growing large plants it is necessary to start them in small pots and transplant them as they grow.  The trees were four years old, 6 feet tall and had been transplanted twice. I was devastated that my time had gone to waste.  Damn it! I put a lot into those trees.  I was able to save some.  But there had to be a better way to remove the trees from the pots.  I searched everywhere no luck. With nothing to buy, I searched for plant containers at the Patent Office looking for anything I liked, thinking I’d modify one. No luck. So I started from scratch and invented, designed, built, manufactured, and patented a solution that releases the entire root ball of any plant or tree perfectly every time. Plus a whole bunch of advantages no other pot can do. My hope is that I have explained it so it is easy to see what it can do, because it does so much more than other pots.

See for your self. Perfect root ball release every time!

The plan

All R&D is completed, small production runs have worked flawlessly. The 1st of 12 pending patents has issued.  Plus we found an investor and now own a small manufacturing machine. Finding gardeners and getting the word out is next. 

Very efficient low power machine.

3.   You can see the roots.  Yes! You can do that now. You’ll know when to transplant.

Risks and challenges

I don't see any real risks to delivering them at this point. With any luck I'll get them to you before the holidays. Might be a nice gift, as for sure they don't have one.
