Hi Barb -

Thanks for checking with us. Frankly, I've never heard of this before and there's far more to the causes of circling roots than what is discussed here. Also, as several of the commenters note, there is no scientific research to back this claim. As always, we need to ensure the information is grounded in science so, again, thanks for checking.

Happy New Year!!

Thanks, Mary! Happy New Year!
