What are the Advantages Grow Bags?
Grow bags offer several distinct advantages over other growing methods. Plants grown in plastic pots quickly become root bound with roots circling the pot. In contrast, grow bags allow oxygen to penetrate the walls of the pot. When roots come into contact with these higher levels of oxygen they branch out and become more fibrous. A recent study in Texas showed plants developed double the root mass when grown in Grow Bags compared to traditional plastic pots. This increased root mass means increased surface area to absorb water and minerals resulting in a stronger, healthier and faster growing plant.
Grow bags not only let the oxygen in, they also let water out, preventing problems associated with over watering like root rot. Because of these desirable properties Grow Bags have become the pot of choice for many hydroponic farms and commercial nurseries alike.
Why should I Start Using Grow Bags?
Because the just work! Grow Bags are great for growing fruits and vegetables and well as ornamental plants around the house. They are quick to set up and can be placed on Patios, Walkways or Balconies. They also make a great addition to the back yard. They biggest difficulty with growing plants in the back yard is aerating heavily compressed backyard soil to create a suitable growing environment. The soil in many back yards is not suited to growing vegetables and often does not drain well. Grow bags solve this problem. Simply unfold and fill with your preferred growing media and you have a high performing garden within minutes. Grow Bags can also be easily relocated or folded up and stored when not in use. Best of all, Hydra Grow Bags are made of high quality materials and built to last so your Grow Bags will perform for many years in all weather conditions.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
They hold more than 1 cubic foot, more like 1.5. They get kind of round when you fill it in with soil, but I end up tapping the sides so they square a bit. They are nice when creating a square-ish garden and have worked pretty well for me so far... I've bought 4-5 sets. They're also very thick and sturdy; I haven't had a problem moving them. Just remember to water regularly as they detail REALLY WELL (a plus if you tend to over love your plants with water).
These work okay. As an alternative to more expensive clay planters, they do meet the minimum of actually holding soil and having things grow. They're also fairly porous so water can get out without bogging down. The fabric is surprisingly durable.
But here's the problem: once you put a cubic foot of dirt into this, how are you going to move it? A cubic foot of dirt weighs anywhere between 80 and a 100lbs. There's no handles. They need some. These need to be more portable.
I looked at the other growing bags from this vendor, and the larger ones have handles. Which is sort of ironic to me because a larger container of soil would be even harder to move but yet it is made more portable.
Unless you need squares to satisfy your OCD urges, I would look at the round fabric containers. They sell for a bit less. These do sit a little nicer and look less frumpy, however.
This was sent to me at no cost by the vendor for review. The vendor has no control...
I was looking for a planter to put outside for some vegetables. This set is wonderful! They hold soil well despite being fabric. This works perfectly! I have perfect drainage, lots of room, and I can grow above the ground in good composte.
