Default Re: container bananas 2022

they hold the weight
transplanting is a pain with these
i roll down the sides and then (with a tall plant,laying on the ground)
push with my knee while i pull down the sides further
it is a real pain compared to a hard tapered container

i move mine with a dolly and as long as the soil isnt soaking wet or loose soil with not filled in roots they retain the shape but there is a higher chance of damaging roots when moving around compared to hard container

animals rip holes in the sides sometimes ( i stuff a dead banana leaf in there to block the soil)

i got most of these on sale someone walked out on an order
different brands have varying durability
these are root pouch, smart pot and off brand ones

i recently built some "fabric pots" more of a permanent outdoor installation using burlap doubled up
sides only no bottom
animals did mess the sides up within a day or two and i wrapped chicken wire around them
i would like to move more towards natural products and not add microplastics to my landscape
i made a couple pottery hanging baskets i might post pics of later

there are natural fabric pots in the market if i were to buy more i would get those so they could compost at the end of their lifespan
