Buy the ones that are UV protected. It will last reasonably long enough.

Yes, you can grow vegetables and flower plants in these grow bags. different sizes are available.

But make sure there is good sunlight where you plan to keep it, without photosynthesis the plants don’t grow .

For plants, the vital source of energy to grow is the sun. then comes water and fertilizers. .

These grow bags are heavy duty and will take more load than you think, Also, you don’t need to carry it outdoors to the sun and indoors back in the evening every day. It mostly stays at the same place for the rest of the plant life.

Grow bags works out cheaper, looks organized and also it is the first step what many home gardeners take before they get really interested further.

Grow bags are like boot strap of gardening.

Medium size bags are sufficient for growing beans, bhindi, tomatoes in your roof or the balcony.

You should try gardening, you might like this.

Yes even normal plastic bag will work
Only condition is that you protect it from sunlight
These cannot be hanged

I guess u r thinking these are HDPE grow bags. These are just LDPE and light weight. Here seller played magic….Instead of white color, They make LDPE bags as green color.

I used to grow veggies and flowers since 8 years in grow bags. I always recommend HDPE grow bags in terms of quality and good looking. The ones u shared are LDPE and shelf life maximum 2 years.

It will be bigger topic bro. I will give suggestion which I am practicing.

1. Never buy gardening material online. The prices are always 3 times higher compared to offline.

2. Do not buy hybrid seeds. Always prefer to buy native seeds.

3. Never use chemicals/harmful fertilizers. Strick to natural resources like cow dung based products, vermicompost.

4. regularly watering plants.

5. Replace soil mix every one year. No need to throw soil, you can club with new soil or add vermicompost .

6. There are many terrace gardening groups in facebook to follow. join at least 2 or 3 groups and observe the discussions.

7. Water should freely go inside the grow bags or pots.

8. Cover the soil with dry leaves or saw dust. it will maintain moisture inside grow bag or pots.

There are lot more to go but these some basics in mind at present.

I used to have 200+grow bags (in my terrace) when I was in Bangalore but now I moved out to Hyderabad and I did not enough place to maintain so many pots.

Don’t think that quality of online material is good as compare to local nursery
In any good nursery you will easily find good quality material and cheap

Important factor is that there should never be water flooding in the soil. Soil mix has to be porous enough to let excess water drain out and your soil holding container has to have holes or be porous to let that water out, else your plants will die of root rot. For these reasons I find grow bags messy and pots clean.
