Details & Features

This 6 cell container holds 120mm diameter Ellepots, the largest size in our current Ellepot container range. Produced in South Africa, these trays nest very closely together keeping global shipping costs to a minimum.

A 120mm wide Ellepot is the equivalent of a gallon pot loose-fill container and is the perfect size for all fruit trees and larger landscape trees. It is also an excellent substitute for those trees grown in plastic bags – even though the rootball may end up being slightly smaller. This is because the root system is far superior than when grown in bags, meaning a smaller rootball can support a much larger tree. This tree is also highly likely to take better and grow quicker once planted out too.

This sized Ellepot is also a good size for greenhouse or indoor cultivation of adult hemp plants all the way up to harvesting size.

One of the key concepts with the Ellepot/Proptek system is how compatible with automation it is. Serious time and money efficiency savings can be made throughout the whole growing process, right from filling, to sorting & grading to shipping out of the door.

The optimum height Ellepot for this container is 6.5″ (165mm), though Ellepots taller than this can be used if required.

The Ellepot supports the growing media and holds it together while the roots are growing, meaning they can be moved or transplanted far sooner than in traditional systems. The Ellepot inserts are held in such a way that also allows enough air movement for great aeration and drainage and fantastic ‘air pruning’ of the root system. The tray also keeps the plants raised off the ground away from standing water to allow air to better flow around the base to help air pruning. This also stops the plants sitting damp in puddles, helping reduce disease and water logging.

Once the trees are grown to the desired size, the Ellepot insert can be removed, packaged and sent to the field or customer without any plastic leaving the nursery, helping to ensure containers never go missing. This also helps with disease management, as you aren’t bringing any contaminated containers back to to the nursery.

Please Note…

1 Full truck loads can fit more trays per pallet as a dedicated full size 53ft lorry is used for delivery. For partial truck loads, we cannot guarantee the height of the lorry, so pallets must fit into all commercial freight vehicles. If arranging your own transport, please advise us at the earliest opportunity on the internal height of your vehicle.

2 Trays are stacked loose or partly loose to get the maximum number of trays per container. This will result in lower unit shipping cost but also more labor to unload

All statistics and measurements may vary so please check before purchasing, if critical, or ask for sample.
