Good to know
- Why isn’t a Soaking Bag issued with every grow kit? Good question! Even though we highly recommend using the Soaking Bag, not everyone wants to use one. We have received complaints from customers (with super clean refrigerators no doubt) referring to the expanding plastic soup, so we have made the Soaking Bag available only as a stand-alone item.
- We recommend soaking one grow kit per bag.
- In case you wonder; one Soaking Bag fits three regular grow kits or two xl grow kits. But, in respect to one grow kit contaminating another (you’ll never know for sure) we suggest using one bag per grow kit.
- Use the Soaking Bag for one soaking cycle only. We know it is not environment friendly, so you may want to try and disinfect the Soaking Bag the best you can, but it is never completely clean again.
- The Soaking Bag cannot be used in an autoclave or pressure cooker.
