Hey folks, I just got into growing lotus and ordered myself a few tubers of different varieties. Best price i've ever seen for lotus. They're going to arrive for me by Monday and I've been thinking about the various ways i can grow them.
I was thinking about but those whiskey barrels that have been cut in half to convert into planting pots. My question is if I can use a regular black garbage back to line the inside of the whiskey barrel? Actual pond liner seems really expensive and a molded bowl that is made to fit into the whiskey barrel is not really what I am going for.
Has Anyone tried using garbage bags as liners and if so, how didd that go, how long did they last? My other idea is to plant them into there own big pots and set them into my pond to make a natural scene if the garbage bag liner idea does not work.
