A “PB” is the black polythene planter bag which is used to grow the plant in. PB stands for Pint bags. The number on a PB bag signifies the volume which is measured in pints of soil. 1 Pint = 600ml, as a rough guide multiply the PB number by .6 to get the volume in litres of the bag.
The height of the plant does not always correlate with the bag size – it varies depending on species and the length of time the plant has been potted into a particular bag.
