Plastic mesh grow bags vs cloth

I came across these bags and Im curious if anyone else has tried a similar style compared to standard fabric bags? I almost wonder if these actually dry TO fast. Or if they provide even more oxygen for the roots.

Never seen before.


Looks very very intresting.
Alot of air i see here.
NICE.


You must do watering so they run off little water in the bottom always with these
im pretty shure.
And the good thing is that you cant overwater almost i think with these.




I think i will try these. Must see if i can order them to my Country


Cool thing
They look really nice to me.


iM pretty shure i can take off 10% perlite and 10% of the coco in my soil mix, and use 20% + more soil .
This can be really nice for indoors grow.




Is there anyone who ever use them or know more info?

Folks leave footprints...

You can still over water them or cloth pots. It will help you but, please stop propagating you can't over water a pot using these pots!

... it's a long story re: footprints!

I use them myself (cloth pots) and it is definitely a misnomer that you can't over water using them. That is what I am saying IME.

I think your sides would stay too dry, regardless of how you water.

I don't like the regular fabric pots for the same reason.
I think still better than solid plastic.

If you use them (cloth pots) as designed, they work just fine IME. Mine are on a schedule of W D D F D D W. I vary the amount of water they receive by what the plant tells me. I am experienced with "screened pots" so it was a no brainer for me. OTOH, don't mess with what you are doing if it is working out for you. OTOH if it doesn't, may as well be receptive to new ideas.

I went from cloth to these and haven't looked back.
