The Vertical Hanging Grow Bags by Panacea is the perfect addition to almost any indoor garden or flower bed. Its interlocking design enables the plant to be gently pulled up as it grows, and its heavy burlap material ensures full exposure to light. The added light keeps the plants healthy, vigorous and bright. This product is highly versatile and can be used for container gardening as well as traditional plantings. With it’s numerous uses, the only limitation is really your imagination!
The beauty of this product is the way it encourages root growth. As the hanging grow bags are filled with loose soil, it makes it easier for the roots to develop and spread out, as well as hold the soil in place so that it won’t wash away easily. Once the plant has sprouted to a certain size, all you have to do is remove the plant and the grow bag, empty and pack away the excess soil, sterilize with sterilized water, then store in an airtight container. You can plant the small seeds in a variety of areas, including along fences or around decks, windowsills, patios and porches, in the yard, on your porch and in your storage shed.
One of the most popular uses of the vertical hanging grow bags are for smaller, indoor plantings. There are many different varieties available, from the very light Wooded varieties up to the heavy clay-based mixes. They also come in different heights, from one to two centimeters. The light ones are best for containers, while the heaviest ones are ideal for pot gardening. Even with the additional height, the shallow bottoms prevent breakage and the plant remain firmly anchored to the bottom.
In the past, wall hanging grow bags used to only be a practical idea for small indoor plants. However, recent improvements in the technology, including the use of plastics and clear plastic pockets in the bags, have made them a much more viable option for larger plant growths. As with any hanging bag, you want to keep air circulating around your plant. Plant growth is better with at least five square feet of space to allow air flow.
You will also want to take into account the height of your container, whether it is above or below ground level and how much space is available in the area you plan to plant. You should also know that it takes more energy to grow plants that are taller than three centimeters because they have more leaves. A hanging grow bag allows you to plant these taller plants directly below your existing plants, maximizing the vertical space available.
Plants that are too tall for hanging bags can also be planted in other methods. Hanging baskets are the most common method, providing good coverage with limited opportunities for error. However, they are limited in size, can be messy, take up more space and take a longer time to mature. With a hanging plant growth bag, the opportunity for error is reduced and there are no pesky hoops or ladders to worry about. This makes it an ideal choice for anyone who is considering an outdoor garden. There is no soil to clean, no trellis work or construction needed and it’s just as easy to set up.
It is important to remember, though, that two-by-two-foot pots are not appropriate for hanging bags. These pots must be deep enough to support the weight of the soil, which will be considerable and could cause the plant to sag if the roots are not properly supported. Potted herbs will work just fine, provided there is adequate support below the surface.
A little difference is noticeable when using hanging containers versus using the burpee grow bag. With the burpee, the soil is allowed to drain before the bag is placed into the container and air is breathed in before the light source is turned on. With a hanging container, however, soil must drain before the water is sprayed on the roots. The water is then released slowly over the course of several days until roots are adequately covered. If you want to try this form of container gardening, keep in mind that it will take slightly longer. In addition, it may be necessary to repot each visit as the roots settle and continue to grow.
