Plants in plastic bags do quite well. This zinnia which was one of the best among the rest as you see is in a plastic bag. Plants that have short life could be planted in plastic bags rather than pots which could be used for perennials. Plastic bags retain moisture and therefore plants need not be watered as frequently as those in pots.

That is a good idea. We can plant baby trees like apples in plastic bags and it is easier to replant them on the ground when they are ready to be transplanted.

This idea is so creative. And the plastic bags can be recycled again. I like people who always think out methods to protect our planet.

@allknowing I can see it now. Maybe I commented in the tiny time slot between your posting the text and uploading the photo.

My experiment was to transplant in plastic bags and keep the plant in there till it lasted.

Sometimes I put the saplings in plastic bag, but shift them to pots when they grow.

That is the normal procedure but keeping them there till they yield does seem a good idea as I have found it to be.

This plant came from seeds which I had sown. I got quite a number of seedlings and strangely this plant performed the best. Those you get in the market are meant to be transplanted into pots.

what a great idea, I have never heard of doing this, but we have so many plastic bags I throw them away. I could do this.

if you hide them somehow, you will only see the plants and not the bags.

That is provided the plants are not placed outdoor, and it is not rainy season. I think the plastic bags will retain too much water when it rains, and the plants will die because the roots are soaked in water for too long.

This plant is under the awning. Anyway zinnias do not do well in the rains.
