Re-using the fabric pot is safe, simple, and easy. First, remove all soil and other solid elements from the fabric pot.

A brush with soft bristle may be used to dislodge some of the pieces/particles that are slow to release. Follow this up with a vigorous spray of water from a hose. Allow the fabric pot to dry at least 24 hours.

A commercial/heavy duty washing machine can be used to mechanically clean the fabric pots. Be careful not to exceed the capacity of the machine!

A simple and effective “natural detergent” is a solution of vinegar (white) and baking soda. Allow the fabric pots to air dry prior to re-filling with your desired growing media.

MoistSure Max lining is a waterproof liner that directs water to drain from the the lowest quarter of the of the fabric pot. Moving the water to the lower portions of the pot generates an even, consistent level of moisture in all areas of the fabric pot.

Natural design is for soil to dry from the surface to the roots. For best results, many growers collect data from a moisture meter to allow greater understanding of microbe and nutrient efficiency.

The Living Soil growing philosophy is highly recommended for achieving not only the best yields, but also the best environmental outcomes. Controlling the greatest number of variables related to growth and cultivation generates the most efficient and most productive growth rates while reducing the number of unplanned for conclusions.

We recommend that you discuss your unique and individual aspirations with a knowledgeable supplier of soil amendments for the best possible components to add to your Kultiva fabric pot.

The innovative offset handle system was developed to aid growers and gardeners in moving or relocating these fabric pots. We witnessed too many ripped bags, injured backs, and lots of frustration centered around the challenge of moving or re-positioning the bags.

The heavy duty handle, coupled with the raised berm, allows for a safer, stronger, and more pleasant chore. The reinforced stitching on the handles provides extra strength and durability, as well as a balanced means to safely lift and carry the plant.

The unique shape of the rim, (we call it a berm,) retains water, soil, and any other elements in the fabric pot to remain in the pot during any relocation.

Our biggest bags have four handles because gripping and moving these monsters is never easy or convenient! Ripped surfaces and inconvenient handle placement were two problems we wanted to solve for larger scale growers. We beefed up the handles to accommodate heavier lateral loads caused by pulling and tugging on a horizontal direction.

Kultiva Grow Bags are green to remind all of us of the reasons we are here: to enable growth, to help our partners thrive, and to enhance the lives of our colleagues. The light green reminds us that we need to improve and mature every day: our growth cycle never ends.

Careful use of Kultiva grow bags, including regular cleaning should generate a life span of approximately 5 years. This estimation will vary due to growing media used, external atmospheric influences, and cleaning cycles.

The largest Grow Bag available at this time is 30 gallons. Development is underway on 48” x 48” and 48” x 96” raised grow beds which should be available later this spring. Please let us know if you see a use for larger diameter selections.

a. The best way to move or re-locate the larger grow bags (>7 gallon) is to enlist the aid of a colleague to grasp the remaining two handles not being used. Longer treks might be better suited by using a dolley or other wheeled conveyor. Extra heavy bags, or multiple bags at once, can be loaded onto the Kultiva Heavy Duty Dolley in its 24” x 48” format or the larger 48” x 48” format.

b.The large bags can be rotated by simple gripping the bags and turning to the desired position.

c.The offset handle incorporated on the smaller bags (less than 10 gallon) allows the grower to grab the strap and re-position in a simple manner.

Maximizing plant yield in Kultiva Grow Bags requires respecting the three cardinal components of plant growth: light, nutrition, and water. Light sources, either natural sunlight or mechanical (LED or other) should be considered when siting the grow bag.

The ultimate placement of the bag will allow the plant to thrive based on the exposure to the light source. Proper maintenance of the soil bed/ growing media is also critical. Consult with your soil amendment/ soil supplement provider for the best mix/combination to give your plants what they need to thrive.

Water is always a critical element of the success formula. Remember that the unique composition of the Kultiva Grow Bag with the MoistSure Max™ lining seeks to duplicate the effects of growing in nature: water movement/drainage from the surface to the roots.

Regular readings with a moisture meter will ensure that the proper levels are met and maintained. Careful nurturing and management of each of these three important elements has provided increased yields in the 10%-15% range.

Kultiva grow bags are outstanding solutions for all types of growing: indoor and outdoor! The rugged stitching and non-woven fabric stand up well to external factors without super-heating the plant in outdoor grows.

Gardeners and growers have had radical success in growing a wide variety of plants and produce in fabric grow bags. Highly diverse offerings such as Cannabis, Potatoes, berries of all types, herbs, and tomatoes are grown with tremendous ease and achievement. Start your success story today!

The unique and highly innovative grip on the trimmer, aka the “bow,” is a direct result of incorporating the healthy philosophy of true ergonomics into the realm of hand tools. Specifically designed by a grower after years of pain, fatigue, and frustration, the Comfort Grip trimmer was launched to improve the performance and pleasure of the harvest. By resting all four fingers on the same plane, a greater amount of fatigue and repetitive-use injuries were prevented. This allows for more precise trimming for a longer period of time. Plus, the placement of the fingers allows the thumb and index finger to remain “free” for specialty pinching/grasping activities.

Cleaning resin from the trimmer blades is still best accomplished by wiping the metal with an extremely high concentrate Isopropyl Alcohol. Kultiva coats the blades during production with a “slippery nano-coating” material to minimize the amount of resin that accumulates. We wish we could guarantee that no resin would accumulate, but it wouldn’t be honest or authentic due to the nature of the plant being trimmed lends itself to an incredibly wide range of resin concentrations. An occasional wipe down with Isopropyl will get you back trimming at maximum velocity in no time!

Kultiva has found that many sharpening systems exist for maintaining the cutting edge of the system. It’s important to realize that keeping the blade surface clear and free of defect is also important. Nicks, dings, and drops against hard surfaces can result in extensive damage to this important element of the trimmer. For best results, periodically “refine” the cutting edge with a sharpening rod or whetstone. Treat this tool like a chef treats his knives and nothing but great performance will exist!

Thank you! Of course, we are very proud of introducing this tool to a market that so justly deserves and demands such a product. The Kultiva design and development team are busy working on the next generation of hand tools that incorporate this style of grip. Our research indicates that there are many technicians across a wide range of trades that would benefit from a decreased rate of repetitive injury to hands and arms, as well as being able to function at a much higher level of performance. Kultiva was built on the philosophy of making products that improve the lives of our users and products that will enable people to thrive in their vocation and beyond.

Kultiva has specifically modeled the spring terminals to allow for the removal of the stainless steel spring. Removing this spring will allow the user to enjoy a trimming tool activity very similar to an original trimming scissors. It’s important to keep the blades extremely clean when using this technique on highly resinous material. The spring is beneficial for “returning” the blades to the “open” position.

There is no single “best” technique! Trimming is highly personal and varies by the individual. In order to maximize trimming time and to gain the highest yield, trimmers must have access to a wide variety of tools, techniques, and equipment. Kultiva has recognized this fact and provided a wide variety of tools that can be used with different techniques to maximize yields without compromising the overall health and safety of the trimmer. Remember, the best “ability” is “availability:” trimmers can trim if arms/hands/necks/backs are not locked up or spasming!

Kultiva offers a “Stiff” sweep that is a little more rigid and less flexible that our “flexible” sweep. The “Stiff” version is intended to remove a greater amount of volume with the same brushing/sweeping pressure. The “Flexible” version is best used when a more gentle approach is desired.

The “wide” cap incorporates a series of sweeps that fill out the width of the brush. This is for general applications where a high volume of material is being harvested or trimmed. The “narrow” cap allows for a more precise or localized sweep application.

If no two trimmers are alike, why should trimming tools be configured to a single shape or orientation? Our goal in creating the product was to provide the professional with a highly effective brush that can be manipulated and grasped in multiple configurations. Changing grip and mixing up handling can lead to less fatigue and may reduce the onset of repetitive motion injuries. Everyone is different, but the Kultiva Harvest Brush is something on which everyone can agree!

The little arc cut into the ends of the “Wide” brush sweeps allows the trimmer to get closer to the round material being trimmed. More material in contact with the sweeps generates a more effective application, which in turn generates a higher yield.
