This is something my girlfriend and I had talked about doing for a couple years. I think it’s finally time.
I’ve got a lot of reclaimed potting mix from my recent grows. I needed some place to put it, and I happened to have this 1 yard bag that we had some (too expensive) garden soil delivered in this spring.
I tested its water holding capacity and it leaks like a sieve. It’s effectively a 200 gallon fabric pot. I don’t have any sort of water tight tray to go underneath it though. I’ve got it raised off the floor with some foam board insulation.
If you guys have any experience or info I’d like to hear about it.
Here’s a couple of links to videos I’ve been watching.
