Plastic Seed Bags for Nurseries

Plastic Seed Bags

TDI produces custom-made grow bags for either outdoor nurseries or indoor greenhouses. However, our plastic seed bags are only designed to protect and germinate seeds.

At its most fragile growth stage, every seed needs to be protected from outside influences while receiving the right level of moisture and oxygen.

Why do seeds need extra care?

As they are still encapsulated inside their shell, tiny seeds will start to develop once they receive the proper care.  At some point, they will break through their outer layer and start to sprout.

Either a fragile seed or a newly sprouted seedling can die easily if it doesn’t receive the right amount of water and oxygen.

The Right Amount of Water

Like every living being, seeds need water to survive. And not enough water can dry them out. TDI’s plastic grow bags have proven to retain moisture, more than rigid containers such as clay pots.

But overwatering can kill them too. That is why TDI’s bags have drainage holes for proper water drainage. So they are a great solution.

Proper Oxygen Flow

Little seeds need enough oxygen to survive. With our nursery bags, they can comfortably breathe through the vent holes that are punched in the poly material.

The Right Temperature

Once they overheat, your seeds can easily dry out. On the other hand, some seeds do not survive cold weather conditions. So the bottom line is to keep them at the proper temperature at all times.

Also, the color of the plastic affects the temperature inside the bag. The darker the poly, the more it retains heat, while a lighter color does the exact opposite.

What are the benefits of using plastic in grow bags?
