Would you enjoy having a dwarf citrus tree, but would rather not have to prune roots and change pots? Our air pruning pot does all the work for you. The 5L Pot is for 1 gallon trees and the 20L Pots is for  3 gallon trees.

This 20-liter (5.2 gal.) pot is designed with multiple holes, which naturally prune the roots when they encounter air. The process prevents roots from circling and becoming woody. In this pot your citrus tree will remain between 4 and 6 feet tall, which is the perfect size for indoors or on your patio.

The air pruning pot works through a system of strategically designed and placed holes in the pot’s sidewalls and bottom. When roots attempt to grow through the holes, they encounter air, causing the roots to do a natural U-turn, and grow back into the soil. When this happens, the roots naturally branch, which mimics the growth pattern of a pruned root. The new root growth becomes healthy and vibrant and continues to nourish the tree.  Air pruning prevents roots from endlessly circling the interior pot wall and becoming woody in their search for more soil. At the same time, the tree will remain at a smaller size because the roots are still restricted from diving deep and spreading wide. This combination of contained but healthy roots is what allows the air pruning pots to help you grow vibrant yet smaller citrus trees.

This pot allows you to never have to re-pot to a larger size pot and naturally dwarfs the tree but allows the fruit to be that of a mature tree.
