Finally, fill up the rest with soil and water it, as needed. So now it’s ready to grow!

Below are some questions and answers from our clients who work ‘in the field.’

Q&A’s – Nursery Grow Bag:

1. Do plants become root bound in plant bags?

Answer: In a traditional pot, roots can start spiraling and cause unhealthy conditions. With a poly bag, some roots will die off to create more space, so they can become more fibrous and healthy.

2. What plants can I use nursery bags for?

Answer: They can be used for all kinds of plants, seeds, and trees. But it’s up to the grower to figure out what works best.

3. Where can I use TDI’s grow bags?

Answer: You can use them outdoors in the field, indoors in a building or a greenhouse, or hydroponically.

4. How can I cultivate high-quality plants with grow bags?

Answer: With the selection of quality potting soil your plants will thrive. Organic soil especially works best to produce healthy, strong plants.

5. Can my plants rot in nursery grow bags?

Answer: Even during heavy rain, the holes create an excellent drainage system that prevents rotting. In fact, with our bags, nutrients stay inside the bag so they don’t wash out. 

Good to Know

For example, if the height of your bag is 15 inches, but the gusset is 10 inches, then the actual usable space (height) is 15″ – 5″ = 10″.  2) If you choose to fold over the top edge, it will also impact the height of your bag.

Additional tools: Some plant species require additional tools to help them grow better. For example, some need a humidity tray with standing water to keep them hydrated. While others might need a drip irrigation system that nurtures them from the top down.
