I really wish you (or anyone) could plant pepperonies!! But we got the idea by looking at your peppers. I think is a pretty good one. Will start one for my green tomatillos.!!! Thanks! With regards of the "hydroscopic crystals", I believe they are called "CLAY BALLS" over here and they serve that purpose exactly: keep water within. Good job, Bruko. Molto Grazie!

i'm sure it will work: last year with the same method i planted little tomatoes and it worked! i ecommend to use only one BIG plastic bag.
Potting soil usually comes in a bag. Poke some holes in the bottom of the bag for drainage. Put that side down into the box. Cut a slit, x or what ever you want in the top of the bag. Add seeds or starter plants, fertilizer, sun shine and water. You may not need the box unless you want to move it. This might be too hot in hotter climates.

"hydroscopic cristals" Hygroscopic crystals? But those aren't - can't name them myself but what purpose do they serve? L

I don't know the real name of that things, in italian they're called: 'cristali idroscopici'. They help the terrain to keep the water, because they are porous They aren't indispensable

Porous ceramic things? I guess they don't go mushy or compacted, would allow drainage, without drying out? L
