What interested me most about it, and prompted the purchase was the whole.. expandability of it, but moreover, the material:

The label reads: “Moulded [from] sustainable bamboo [fibre] pulp and coloured with food safe dyes.” “These pots will last at least 3 years and after use will biodegrade when buried in the compost heap.”

This is a very interesting material and very relevant to my project. I’ve also found more information on it here:
