I've been pondering my dilemma about the out-growing luffa's and didn't know what to do. I wanted them in something biodegradable but what? Jackie emailed me and suggested lining pots with newspapers. That way their roots wouldn't be disturbed and, when the time came, wouldn't mind the transplant. Excellent idea! But the thought of lining a dozen pots, just right, with newspaper was overwhelming (okay I was being lazy) so I thought there has to be another way. Eureka! Those brown paper lunch bags I bought for cd/dvd holders would work!
I measured the pots, cut the excess off the top of the bags and wala, perfect :)
I'm sure the bags will survive for awhile and hopefully will still be somewhat intact when planting comes.
Finger's crossed these guys tone down a bit because they won't be planted outside until May!
This would work with anything that out-grows it's pot. I've been holding off on planting my tomatoes and peppers but I think I'll do it now :)
