Whether you are setting up a new home Garden in your balcony or a rooftop garden, the first thing you will need is some pots and/or containers in which you will be growing your vegetable or flowering plants.
What are the available choices when it comes to Gardening Containers?
When it comes to choosing the type of container, you will have few choices like plastic pots, mitti ke gamle or grow bags for plants made of LDPE / HDPE plastic sheets.
Talk to any experienced gardener and he will vouch for the many benefits of using Mitti ke Gamle or earthen pots.
Mitti ka Gamla evaporates the excess moisture & Keeps the soil cool.
It is Biodegradable and made from natural material.
And a lot more…
But they come with some negative points as well.
They are costly.
They put a lot of weight on your balcony and rooftops.
They require a lot of watering, especially in regions with hot climates like India.
And due to their tapered design, they are able to accommodate only a lesser quantity of growing medium in comparison to other types of containers.
Plastic pots have their positive and negative points too.
Plastic pots are lightweight but they can be very expensive as well.
Most of them can get damaged and even loose colour early.
Their design is usually similar to that of Mitti ka Gamla and similarly have much lesser capacity to hold growing medium.
This is where Plastic sheet (LDPE) Grow Bags for plants score over both.
They weigh just a few grams.
They have a higher capacity of holding a growing medium yet take the same amount of space as the other two.
A 10 x 12 inch grow bag can hold 1.5 times the growing medium than a plastic or mitti ka gamla.
They are white in colour on the outside which reflects sunlight and keeps the soil cool.
LDPE grow bags do not allow water evaporation and need less frequent watering.
Watering our plants is the most time-consuming job for any gardener.
Also, LDPE Grow bags for plants can be folded and stored in small spaces, which is another advantage that most city gardeners can’t ignore.
And as our grow bags are priced around Rs 25 per piece, they easily become the best bet for any terrace or rooftop garden.
