Difference between plants in tubes or bags?

  • I’ve noticed that Petsmart or Petco have plants with some being in the tubes, and some being in bags. What is the difference between the two minus species and why do they have them in such different like packaging? Is one harder to grow than the other?

  • The only real difference between them is mostly what type of plant, and how much sunlight it requires. Plants like dwarf hair grass, Anubias nana tend to be in those packages since they are smaller and require sunlight on multiple sides than just from the top down (where a tube would prevent much sunlight from even hitting the plant fully).
