Hai Friends,

I recently bought grow bags for Rs.90/kg from Orient plastics in Parrys. They have different sizes & all cost the same.The address is #45, Anderson Street,Ch-1.  The street is diagonally opposite to the Broadway bus terminus. There are Olympic wedding cards banner on either side of the street entrance. Ph no.25393667 / 25381071.

Many of us don't have enough space for pots. Grow bags are flexible & easy to move around. I have just sown palak & sirukeerai & potato too. Let's see how it turns out.

Hope this post was useful.

Hai Selva,

Sorry for the late reply.Saw ur post just now.

Not sure abt the thickness but sizes are different;more or less that of the pots we find in nursery. I bought the last 2 sizes on the higher side-sizes of width x height -6inch x 14inch & 7inch x 16inch .

Tomato & okra are growing healthy. Potato green shoot is just peeping out in one. Palak is slowly shooting up but the tiny sirukeerai seedling were affected by the recent trains:-(

I'm just experimenting with all.....as a novice.So dunno if I can advise reg. the plant choice. My humble suggestion -try it out.

 

Regards.

Confused Wondering how to post pic from PC.

The grow bags I'm speaking of are the plastic ones; the kind that small plants are grown in at nurseries. Companies like Nelsun coir and Bloom&Peat sell the more sophisticated ones made of cocopeat.

How much did you buy for?

A few months back I sent mail enquiries to few companies abt their grow bags but no response. They are export companies and probably will sell only in volumes.

Cocopeat in nurseries in & around Anna Nagar is usually Rs.120-Rs.150/ 5kg bag.  I also buy soilrite ( cocopeat perilite mix) from them for seed gemination. It is Rs.50/kg.

Hello,

I have been using these plastic bags for the last one year and I had also posted on this forum about these. But what I find is that within 6 months, the 'wear and tear' is high, as these bags are kept in direct sunlight and they get torn. i have to discard these in 6-8 months and I felt so guilty of throwing these torn plastics to garbage.

You may want to think before buying these in bulk for planting.

But there are other kinds of grow bags, in green / orange colors, which are more sturdy than there plastics. These last for long and can be easily managed if you are moving them. I believe there are some posts on these too in this forum.

Jay,
the other kind is of HDPE woven poly bags. They look very similar to the cement bags. Check for UV treated material. UV treament will increase the life of the bag.
