How Small Plants Can Outgrow Larger Ones in a Single Season
Plants want to grow - that is their goal in life! From the moment a seed or root sprouts into visible green growth, your plant is on a mission to become big and strong. Like all living creatures, a plant's biological mission is to be healthy enough to reproduce and secure their specie's presence well into the future.
But not all plant sellers support your plant's fast-growth mission.
Many big box stores for example, put their effort into making a plant look like a bargain - with big leaves and flowers hanging over the sides of a large pot. Most consumers assume that this big, low-priced specimen is a steal. However, upon closer inspection, you're likely to find a root system that is incapable of getting the plant to grow much bigger than it already is.
A much better deal is to purchase smaller plants with active root systems, at a fraction of the cost, and watch them outgrow those big box specials within one or two seasons.
Active Root systems are in the constant process of creating new roots to seek out and absorb nutrients, which help the plant grow fast and strong.
