The tough, UV-resistant bag acts as the growing container, and they have a square footprint, so as well as eliminating the need to buy plant pots, U-Gro Pots are designed to maximise the ratio of plants to space, allowing 25 bags per m2.
When submerged and soaked in water, the compressed coco rehydrates and once it swells to reach a volume of 9 litres it is ready to use.
