In A Bag

Get a plastic grocery bag (from Vons, Ralphs, Trader Joes, etc.), a clear plastic bag, or a black garbage bag. Fill it with soil and grow your plant. When the plant starts growing, loosly tie the top up so soil doesn't fall out.

  • Can have a huge pot (a black trash bag)
  • You can grow big plants


  • Hard to make - tricky keeping soil in
  • chemicals could leak and kill plants

Plastic Pots
