I am looking for a size, ( or two ). larger than this, something approximating an actual 5 gallon bucket. I see 'trade' gallons are not liquid gallons. Is there something larger ?
The 5 gallon (3.74 liquid) gallon bags are all we have for now. In a few weeks we are getting 7 gallon bags, which are exactly what you'd be looking for! Hope you will be back with us soon.
I'm looking for something like 25 gallon
We currently only have 5, 7 and 100 gallon. We will be adding 25 Gallon to our collection by mid June 2017. Thanks!
What type of growing medium works best for the 7-gal grow bags? I don’t have plans to supply drip this season so I anticipate water retention will be an issue. I’m wondering then if heavier soil will help or should I stay with potting mix?
You can either use a potting mix or compost. I would recommend adding vermiculite to your mix if your concerned with water retention, as this naturally helps retain moisture. You might need to experiment a little to see what works best in your situation and agricultural zone.
Do these need to be washed before using? And do you have washing instructions? Thanks.
These do not need to be washed before use. If you want to wash them, we recommend using warm soapy water and spraying with a dilution of hydrogen peroxide or vinegar and water to disinfect/santize.
How much soil do the 9x9x10 plastic planters hold? Can I use those for tomatoes?
You can use these for tomatoes. Its a very common use case. They hold just under a half a cubic foot.
Approximately how much growing medium/soils is needed per gallon of pot space?
Filling a 1-gallon plant pot takes 3 dry quarts of potting soil. So you'd need 21 dry quarts for a 7 gallon.
I am interested in your colored grow bags. Do they only come in one size, 7 gallons? Also, I see that the multi-color is out of stock. Does that mean that you are out of stock of a 10 pack of 5 different colors, or is there a grow bag that is, itself, multi colored? - When do you think you will be selling the bags in a multi colored pack again?
Hey there, we will be back in stock in just a few weeks! We only have the 7 gallon in colors. There are 2 of each color in each 10 pack.
What grow bag size is best for tomato plants and what size for peppers?
Any size from 3 gallon to 7 gallon works just fine. Mostly just a matter of preference by the grower.
