Nowadays, the usage of containers such as plastic or styrofoam containers, and other similar items is widely used in farming, especially vegetable growing. However, these items are not the appropriate options when growing trees. Today We’ll introduce you Grow Bag, an effective alternative to growing directly on the substrate.
If you haven’t heard of and used “Grow bag” or planting bag for growing tomatoes, let’s explore with EnvironSoil in this article and give it a try!
Grow bag, also known as plant bag that is a product that comes in the shape of a PE bag that contains compressed coco coir. Moreover, Grow bag has an organic coconut soil, an excellent growth medium for both outdoor and indoor growing. For instance, it is commonly use to grow a broad range of crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, bell peppers, strawberries, and so on.
EnvironSoil provides a variety of blends and ratios for each type of crop. For growing tomatoes, we mix coco peat, short coco fiber, and coco chips. The main purpose of adding coconut chips in the Grow Bag is to increase aeration capacity for the roots. Therefore it’ll help the roots grow, and give higher yields.
The expanded size (size when adding water) of the EnvironSoil grow bag is 100x20x10 cm. This is the most appropriate and common size for growing tomatoes, providing outstanding performance. Furthermore, the size depends on the preferences and habits of the grower, the climate of the region, so we also provide other sizes of grow bags according to the requirements of customers.
EnvironSoil typically provides four drainage holes at the bottom as an added convenience for farmers. Furthermore, we will meet the standards for planting holes and drainage holes for each type of plant as well as customer needs. It is not critical whether or not the drainage hole is utilized, but since Grow bag is a planting bag, if we do not use the drainage hole, it is difficult to manage the quantity of water in the bag, making it prone to stagnation. In addition, since coco peat absorbs water, you should be cautious when using a grow bag without a drainage hole, as this can easily lead to water-logging and plant death.
