The most technologically advanced Grow bags available
Rain Science® grow bags eliminate many of the problems associated with container gardening. Grow bigger healthier plants with less hassle in a fraction of the time.
Air root pruning creates masses of fibrous feeder roots which maximize plant growth
Minimized root circling allows for longer life in Rain Science Grow bag
Rain Science® Grow bags material is Certified safe, nothing is exchanged with the soil and is great for all natural gardening
How do they work?
The problem with fabric Grow pots are mold build up and root rot from the fabric staying wet The Wet material does not allow air to pass very freely. Our special mesh allows for better drainage than traditional grow bags. Rain Science Grow bags provide More stable root zone temperatures, Greatly improved drainage through the entire growbag and extra oxygen to the soil because of improved air flow through the fabric. This air flow facilitates a process called air root pruning, where the plant creates a bunch of tiny feeder roots which are better at absorbing nutirents, this in turn leads to increased plant growth.
Why not just use Plastic pots?
When your roots grow, they will quickly reach the container walls. With Old School plastic containers, these roots immediately start circling and continue to circle. If you look at the root structure from a plant in a plastic pot you find a few large roots growing in circles with very little side branching, the roots will soon bind upon themselves, restricting nutrient uptake and eventually lead to root bound plants and death.
Why are Rain Science Grow Bags® better than Traditional plastic containers?
Rain Science grow bags aerate your root zone and plastic containers do not. Root Aeration stops root circling by Air pruning, helping your plant build a stronger root structure. Better roots means a faster growing healthier plant. Old School plant pots also hold a lot of heat, which can lead to a whole new set of problems. Rain Science Bags actually dissipate heat keeping your roots at an optimal temperature.
Are Rain Science Growbags® Good for organic Gardening
Yes, Rain Science Grow bags® meet the requirements of the CA Department of Public Health “Standard Method for the Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions.We leach nothing to the soil and exchange nothing with the environment. If the rest of your grow is organic you can feel confident using Rain Science.
What is air pruning?
Air pruning is a natural process that happens as plant roots come in contact with fresh air near the walls of the growbag, the root tip stops growing, essentially pruning itself, this causes the rest of the root to branch off with many tiny feeder roots, instead of a few circling roots. These new roots will continue to colonize bag, allowing the plant to maximize uptake of both water and nutrients.
Are Rain Science Growbags Reusable? How do I clean them?
Yes, Rain Science Grow bags® can be reused over and over again. You can wash them with dish soap and warm water. If you need to sterilize your bags they can be soaked in a solution of H2o2 and water. They are also washing machine safe, so feel free to throw them in with the laundry.
Do I need to use a special potting mix?
You can use any potting mix with Rain Science grow bags®. We recommend something you are familiar with. Because of the extra aeration, your soil may dry out faster and you might wish to adjust your watering schedule or growing medium depending on the moisture requirements of specific plants
