I need about 1/2 dozen pollination bags, anybody know where to get then in a hurry? Hadn't expected things to flower out this fast!

Paint strainer bags for 5 gallon buckets:

EDIT: Just yesterday, I sewed 12 bud bags (30" x 24") from Agribon AG-15. On my rickety old sewing machine, it required less than 3 minutes per bag, including measuring and cutting the fabric, and cutting the Tyvek tags.

Remember to label the variety on each of your bags, somehow.

Those look like the grain bags from the homebrew store, but at half the price.

In the UK, I found amazon marginally cheaper than eBay.

They do seem very similar to the ones used in homebrew shops but cheaper. Since this relates to another hobby of mine, do we think they'd be foodsafe for brewing?

Agribon is a spun (bonded) polypropylene fabric. But the manufacturer states that it contains an added UV stabilizer, whatever that might be.

I discovered the paint strainers for booze making and found out they make good bud bags too since they were just hanging out.

Any concern using black fabric as a bud bag? I have a lot of that black fabric row cover that would work but concerned about possibly heating the pollen up too much?
