This biodegradable pot is made from all natural bamboo. It is sustainably produced and is free of toxic chemicals
. The bamboo flowerpot will last for several years without losing its shape or ability to hold soil. If it breaks or wears out, this sustainable planter can be composted and returned to the earth.
This Buttercup Yellow classic style pot is a perfect replacement for a ceramic or plastic pot. It is wider at the top than the bottom and slopes down at a straight angle. The pot has drain holes at the bottom, so it should be used outside or placed on a saucer to protect countertops or ledges from stains.
You can grow flowers, vegetables, herbs or decorative plants in the pot, just as you would any other planter. It is not as permeable as a peat or paper pot, and bamboo can stand up to water without getting soggy. It does not bulge, bend, or tear.
The large 12 inch pot is perfect for growing houseplants or starting vegetables and other seedlings. With this planter, it's easy to avoid transplant shock. Just bury the whole pot in the ground, and it will break down over time without stressing the roots of the plant.Details

Wooden pots can be made from many different types of lumber, such as pine, cedar, and redwood. Yet bamboo is a better choice because it is fast growing and lightweight. Bamboo can grow amazingly fast - some species spread up to 39 inches in a single day.
Due to its rapid growth and availability, bamboo is a more sustainable material than wood from old growth forests. Bamboo is not in any danger of extinction, and using it instead of other woods allows the preservation of wildlife habitat.
