How do I clean my Grow Bag?
After use dump out the soil and let the bag dry. After a few days of being dry, the dust and small roots will easily brush off. For most people, this is good enough. At this point the Grow Bag folds easily for storage. However, a lot of our customers will wash the bags in OxyClean or peroxide to sterilize. They use a washing machine or dip the bag in a tub. Do not put the Bags in a dryer.
My plants were growing well until I moved them. What happened?
Water the plant! Because of the fabric bottom, if the plant is moved to a dry ground area, the dry ground can move water out of the Grow Bag by capillarity. Water when you move plants.
Why is the Grow Bag better than hard-sided containers?
The Grow Bag aerates and plastic does not. Aeration stops root circling and releases heat, helping your plant build a better root structure. Better roots will give you a better plant.
Why does the Grow Bag have a fabric bottom?
To help you grow a better plant. The Grow Bag is made with a heavy porous fabric bottom that gives a plant intimate ground contact. This ground contact helps the plant maintain a ground temperature, as opposed to a plastic container temperature. Also, small roots may penetrate the bottom of the Grow Bag. These roots will help intake moisture and nutrients.
Is the Grow Bag gopher proof?
The Grow Bag can stand up to gophers. Since our company has been in the retail market, there has been no cases of a gopher getting through the Grow Bag.
Can I place the Grow Bag on my driveway or do I have to place it on the ground?
Yes, you can place the Grow Bag on your drive, or on any other surface. However, remember that the Grow Bag is made of a porous fabric and, with proper use, will remain damp. If left on concrete for a long time it may discolor or stain the concrete. If placed on a wooden deck it will discolor and rot the wood. In these cases you may want to place a plastic dish or a plastic sheet under the Grow Bag.
How does the Grow Bag work?
Grow Bags are manufactured out of a custom, non-woven, polypropylene material that research discovered has important and unique horticultural applications. As roots grow they soon reach the container walls. In hard sided, plastic containers, these roots immediately start circling and continue to circle. Examine a circling root structure and you find a few large roots growing in circles with very little side branching. These roots often bind or girdled upon themselves. Circling roots can never give optimum growth.
Grow Bags are manufactured out of a tough, porous fabric. When roots reach the side of the Grow Bag, they Air Prune!
Who uses the Grow Bag?
The Grow Bag is the best container on the market for helping your plant grow a better root structure. Container gardeners who know that better roots are the key to everything else that happens with a plant use the Grow Bag.
How often should a Grow Bag be watered?
Watering the Grow Bag is not too different than watering hard-sided containers. For all containers watering frequency depends on a number of factors including the types of plant being grown, the potting mix and the weather conditions. Keep two things in mind – The Grow Bag is an aeration container. The porous fabric allows water to evaporate so you may need to water a little more. But, the Grow Bag releases heat. It does not get hot like a plastic container, so you may water a little less.
Is it true that plants grown in Grow Bags don’t have to be repotted as often as those grown in hard-sided pots?
Yes, it is true. Remember, roots do not circle in the Grow Bag. Because of the large volume of fibrous roots, plants growing in a Grow Bag can stay longer, and be healthier, growing in a Grow Bag.
Why is a root system grown in a Grow Bag more desirable?
Any plant is only as good as its root structure. A fibrous root system is a more efficient one and enables the plant to maximize water and nutrient uptake in the limited surrounding soil mass. Also, a fibrous, highly developed root system roots out quicker and establishes quicker when the plant is transplanted.
What other advantages are there to growing in the Grow Bag over traditional, plastic containers?
The fabric will not crack or break from frost or when dropped. Heat release gives you better control of slow release fertilizer. A fibrous root structure has fewer problems in cold or warm weather.
I’m an organic gardener, can I use the Grow Bag and still be organic?
The Grow Bag is an inert fabric container that has no meaningful chemical exchange with the surrounding environment. On a microscopic, chemical level, the Grow Bag fabric is an inert plastic. If the medium and fertilizers you use in the Grow Bag are organic, you will be growing organically in the Grow Bag container.
What is air pruning?
Itis a natural process occurring when a root comes in contact with the air on the side of the porous Grow Bag wall. The root tip stops growing (pruned) and causes the remaining root to extensively branch. Now, instead of fewer circling roots, the plant develops new lateral roots. New, fibrous roots fill the Grow Bag allowing the plant to maximize uptake of both moisture and nutrients. And when the roots grow well, the plant grows well. Upon comparison, root systems that developed in a Grow Bag have a much greater mass or volume then those found in hard-sided plastic containers. Plants grown in Grow Bags have greater root mass in less soil.
