Im not entirely sure what you are asking but Unicorn Bags are great if you wanna drop like $400 for an absolute sh*ton of them. Or you can usually find them on amazon periodically. It'd be like $28 for 50 of them. I usually get the 8x5x20 inch ones with the .2 micron filter. Those work good for presealing with an impulse sealer if youre into that.

I haven't grown in bags for quite a while, as I got tiered of the waste, but I was very successful with them when I did.  A little google-fu, and you will find lots of venders have them these days, but it's been so many years since I bought some, I don't have any good advice as to what venders to start looking at.   

 

I was thinking of starting a grow again myself, and might go the easy(er) route with some bags myself(easier being just my opinion of course).  I'm just a bit on the lazy side (I like to think of it as efficient), and bags have always given me a higher success rate in my dirty old house.   I think I've still got a few from some I got 5 or 6 years ago, and might as well use'em up.

 

If you find a good vender, would you please report it back here to help others who might be in the same boat.

 

Good luck to you, friend.

Personally I wouldn't order them in the dead of summer, those semi trailers can get baking hot. In the US this would be the time of year to order.

Hey, can anyone tell when working with bags with the micro filter.
I'm using them this time around because I'm out of mason jars.
My question is: my grains are clean and ready for the p.c. Should I fold them neatly and seal them before I sterilize the bags?
Won't that create an explosion inside the p.c.??? Safety first!
Or do I seal the bags after grains have been sterilized??
I can't remember how I used to sterilize my bags of grain years ago.

I don't seal bags until after I inoculate them, definitely not before the PC run......

I use them to pasteurize or sterilize coco coir or other bulk substrates. They also make great grow bags for growing cubes!

Fold them with the filter covered by the fold to prevent water from seeping in. Don't seal.
