Grow bags are fabric bags that you can easily grow plants and vegetables in. The bags are constructed out of an eco-friendly fabric which provides many advantages to your typical pot, such as proper aeration and drainage. Grow bags come in various sizes, such as a 2 gallon grow bag, 8 gallon grow bags, 30 gallons grow bag, or a 60 gallon grow bag.
One of the best aspects of grow bags is how easy they are to arrange. You can always change up the way your flowers are laid out on your patio or back porch by simply moving these lightweight containers around. Rearranging potted plants is near impossible due to the weight of the container and the potential for damaging the container. If certain plants aren't doing well, you can quickly reposition them to receive their required lighting, etc.
If you find that you’re short on space but would love nothing more than to have a garden, you should seriously consider trying out a grow bag. Grow bags are one of the best ways for someone with limited space to start their own little garden. These bags take up a small amount of space and fold up to store easily. Long gone are the days of you having a bunch of empty pots under your porch or packed into your garage.
Grow bags work great on patios, balconies, front steps, next to your garden, or anywhere you want to grow flowers or vegetables. Today, we will discuss the benefits of using grow bags and some tips to help put you on the path to success.
The Benefits Of Grow Bags
The most obvious benefit of grow bags is how little space they take up with their use and storage. Grow bags, unlike traditional pots, can be folded up and tucked away neatly in your garage or anywhere you would like. Traditional planters, on the other hand, take up valuable storage space in your home or garage. Oftentimes these planters will also be damaged and need to be replaced as well. On the other hand, Grow bags fold up securely, so you never have to worry about them becoming damaged while sitting in storage.
One of the best benefits of grow bags is their drainage. Your plants or vegetables will never find themselves sitting in damp soil for too long, causing things such as root rot. This is due to the grow bags being constructed out of our eco-friendly breathable fabric. These fabric grow bags will dramatically reduce your risk of overwatering your plants. With that being said, a grow bag can dry out easily as well, so it is important to keep your watering on a consistent schedule.
Another benefit to using fabric grow bags is the temperature control they offer. Traditional pots are not breathable at all. This creates less than ideal conditions for your plants as they are unable to regulate heat. All of this trapped heat dries out and kills the roots of your plants. A fabric grow bag allows the heat to escape and avoids any damage to your plants or vegetables.
Air pruning happens when your plant or vegetable's roots are exposed to the air. When this happens, the roots are "burned off," which causes the plant to produce new and healthy roots. When roots are not exposed to air, they will continue to grow into each other, causing your plant to become root-bound. If your plant becomes root-bound, it will mimic many of the signs of an underwatered plant, such as brown leaves, wilting, or stunted growth. Plants can become so root bound, that the roots may crack the container they are in. Air pruning completely removes this risk from happening and encourages new growth and a healthy plant.
As you can see, there are many benefits when it comes to using a fabric grow bag. Not only are they lightweight, but they prevent overwatering and encourage healthy controlled root growth. If you are looking to grow vegetables or flowers on your patio, balcony, or anywhere in or outside your room, then a fabric grow bag is the perfect choice for you!
