Plant Bags . Seed Bags . Tree Sleeves

So basically there are 3 types of plastic grow bags, depending on their uses. At TDI, we offers the full spectrum: plant bags for plants, seed bags for seeds, and tree sleeves for trees. That makes sense, right?

“Each potted plant in a rigid plastic container costs almost 2-3 times more than TDI’s plant grow bags. It’s because they are thicker, contain more soil and absorb more water. Can you imagine the amount of savings for a nursery that needs thousands of them?”  (comment from a nursery partner)

Benefits of a Plastic Grow Bag

In addition, custom vent holes provide plenty of oxygen and good water drainage. So with the proper usage, plants become strong and healthy, with fibrous roots.

Bottom line: You can successfully grow any container plant in a plastic grow bag. But the difference with a traditional rigid pot is that you’ll pay a fraction of the cost for what you would normally pay.
