Hmm. Out of all the times I've been to homedepot and lowes I have never seen this grow bags.
I found out, after talking to the Home Depot sales dept, that it depends on what state and what city your local Home Depot is in. They do not all carry the same stuff. I will shoot you a pic of a grow bag.
People are using the reusable bags you buy at the grocery store and wal mart as smart pots, and its working. These recyclable bags are 3 gallons or more for like a buck or so. look into those if your still gonna do the small container thing. They have handles and are cheap.

Thank you, and interesting.

I might just use 5 gallon home depot buckets... or maybe just throw out some plants and use the soil on a couple of 20 gallon pots.

I don't know. Either way, visiting the spot daily is no real issue for me.

2 cents

those "smart" bags are better than plastic.. hands down. The plastic buckets heat up and really get hot during the summer. The result is dry roots and HOT soil temps. You need to constantly water. Not good. When your roots are constantly hot and dry, your yield will suffer. Not to mention you will get airy, light buds. It's all about keeping the root zone cool and moist.

That's good to know... So.. will walmart carry those bags for sure? Since it's like a superstore? and what sizes do those bags come in? The smart bags are the grow bags you just referred me to, correct?

I'd say it's a close race, grower dependent.



That's a 15g


Best of luck

I'd say, if watering is not going to be a problem, just clear enough area for each individual plant, It's going to be worth it in the long run to plant into the ground, and will cut down watering significantly. you don't need to clear a giant patch.
You will yield, way more, than the 2 gallon pots, and you can still plant them all.

What if all the surrounding area is clay, very thick clay. (I once poured a gallon of water into a hole dug in the clay, and it didn't drain for a several weeks, instead it just evaporated.

Again, your local store will vary, but yeah, they should. At the checkout, they are the recyleable bags for sale. Trader joes has them. Sears has the fabric bags at checkout here. I know wal mart has those here also.

No good. don't even waste your time digging. Do above ground containers and bags. Dont even waste your time thinking about solid clay. Go buy those bags and get plantin'

My bad, these cannaoil cookies are kicking my ass bro

It's a 15 gal. container, yeild remains to be seen...I'd venture 7-10 zips and she's under a 6.Outdoors, we'll see what she can do

Here she was on 4/20



Today





That was after she vegged for 8-ish weeks and was trained.

From the heart, it's all about the easiest way that we can grow as much great pot as we can with what we have...efficiency of motion, my brother

In the end, we go for what we know.

All the best

WPA is on a distinguished road
The more soil you have the better off you will be. If your planting small seedlings in june, then you can get away with 5 gallons (im doing 10 gallons for my seedlings that are about 4-6 in tall now). Any bigger though and your plant will do much better in a bigger pot. It cost me about 30 bucks for each 25 gallon pot and the soil to fill it.
