Tumeric / Kunyit in polybags, multipurpose.

Being passionate about growing plants  bring me into having 10 large polybags of tumeric or kunyit. It's the portability, being able to shift as we like. At first the polibags of tumeric act as buffer zone to markisa or passion fruit base. I don't want weeds or grass to advance to the base. They are doing fine. Markisa is getting stronger, mature and fruiting, so the role of polibags is reduced.  The ground becomes cooler a little bit. Polybags thus become edgings to the vines.


Two bags are shifted to the other side, making full use of spare drip outlet.

  3. Hi Bangchik, will that turmeric produce roots in that polybag? I guess Malaysians like Indians use turmeric a lot. I also buy the powder ones put in rice and I normally have Java rice this time. It somehow needs getting used to. By the way, i see some people even my friends spell turmeric in writing as tumeric without the "r", hahaha!

    1. Andrea:.... I am so used to the wrong spelling without extra r. Since you remind me, I may have to revert to the right TURMERIC......

  7. Really fantastic info!! This plant can be put easily in poly bags because it can hold it properly and also plays an important role in growing. Using of polybags the ground becomes cooler a little bit. Keep up the good work.
