Self Watering Container Roots

If you ever wondered what happens to the roots of a plant in a self watering container, take a look at this photo. It’s the root system of a healthy banana plant using my conversion technique that needed a bigger pot or a severe cut back of its roots. I went the repotting route. Notice how the roots run atop the reservoir (removed for the photo) as well as below. Awesome (as are all plants)!
