All life is built from specific pieces that stem from a strong, well established foundation. In humans and animals, that foundation is somewhat complex, privy to the individual and circumstance. In plants, the roots are the structure from which all life spouts. If they are weak, damaged, and/or infested with pathogens and disease, they die. however, if the roots are strong, its fruit, vegetation, pods, or buds will be plentiful.
Temperature has a great effect on the roots of all container pot systems. If it is not properly regulated, the higher the degree of heat or the lower the chill factor, the more likely the roots will undergo infestation of the types of pathogens that thrive in that type of environment. The intake of pathogens leads to the degradation of the root system and the death of the plant. That fact can be seen in the symptoms the entire plant presents as the root system deteriorates.
With immense heat, you may notice a color change in the leaves of the plant at first, followed by their wilting along with the collapsing of the stems, and eventually the necrosis of the plant particles sets in. The stems turn brown and the leaves scorch, dry up, and fall off.
The other extreme causes frost issues by freezing the water inside the plant. The cells break apart like icicles and the result is the death of the plant.
Those well versed in the knowledge of proper energy regulation in the entirety of a plant understand that temperature affects all aspects of a plant’s life span. They not only know that when a plant reaches a temperature outside of that required for the optimum growth the plant is adversely effected and its health is in danger, they work to try to rectify the situation.
Oxygen pot systems have been created in order to regulate temperature in container pot systems. These containers are not plastic, ceramic, or wood, they are made from fabric. The fabric aids in heat adaptation of the entire plant because it acts as a protecting agent from strong sun radiation, it insulates, and it provides a balance between the energy entering and the energy exiting the root system and soil components of the plant. Thermal energy can now move freely within the plant and from the plant in several different directions, not just up and down but, out the sides as well. several studies have been done and it has been proven that the soil within the container is 10 degrees hotter when the said container is plastic, wood, or ceramic as opposed to fabric. In most cases where plant life is a concern, 10 degrees can mean life or death.
