lighting technology, alternative heating sources, and greenhouse media have all led to improved efficiencies and decreased impacts on the environment ( Nelson, 2012 ). However, more recently, the heavy use of plastic as pots in greenhouse production has

production is that it prevents blow-over of the plants because pots are planted in-ground and protects overwinter plants from cold injury without any overwintering structure requirement. The PIP system was reported to increase root growth and uniformity of
