Hi,

 

I myself used monginis plastic bags for my tomato plants I cut the top (handles) and cut holes all over the same and have transplanted my plants in it now it's almost 1 1/2 months buds have appeared in the plants 6" to 8" bags hgt. Even for spinach same is sufficent even used bisleri bottle or any other bottles or can with wide mouth can be used to grow spinach keerai.  I have used these @ no cost at all 🙂

 

I have not yet tried the bags for Egg plants yet.  but they may require larger bags 10"-12" may be.  See to it that the bags are strong. 

 

Regards,

Dominica

Hi Raghu,

I bought medium sized grow bags @30Rs,but of late I use big plastic sacks which I get for Rs 8 from big bazaars.I cut them breadth-wise,stitch the sides and make 2 out of them.It is as good as a big grow bag.

Hello raghu,

Monginis is a cake company here in Mumbai. Their plastic bags are the monginis bags so basically what Dominica said was that normal shopping bags/plastic bags which are quite thick and which can handle weight of soil..can be used. Try and use wide mouthed bags.

Maybe you can also try local nurseries for the black plastic bags which they use. They sell it by kilo/packs I think. You'll get many for a better price.
