Not enough drainage in bags
The plants are very hardy, and I was surprised at how quickly they sprang to life and grew new leaves. The bags though... After a few weeks I removed the bottom plants and put them in normal containers. The drainage is just not sufficient in the bags (one tiny little hole) and the plants at the bottom get drowned. I would suggest leaving just dirt in the bottom half and also cutting more drainage holes. The plants at the top are doing great.
5 Star Plants 2 Star Bags
The bags were small and flimsy but the plants had impressive crowns and roots. I think the bag should be made sturdier and instead of 2 small flimsy bag give 1 strong bag large enough to hold all 25 plants and change the handle/hanger to make it easier to hang and water.
Great plants, poor bags
The plants were fine. I, however, disliked the growing bags immensely. After a couple of weeks of poor performance and difficulty throughly watering, I ended up removing the plants from the bags and planting them in the ground where they grew vigorously. I did not have any fruit set last year, but am hoping for massive amounts this spring.
