I wondered that too, I think it is some kind of plastic.

Quite ingenious. I do quite like repotting though :)

I saw this pot some months ago at the website where it's for sale, but of course can't remember where. I do recall really being impressed with it until I saw the price. I shall go now and look for it... Crossing Fingers!
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

Here's one site: http://www.mypotsandplanters.com/outdoor-planters/origami-pl...

The price is $219.99.

Haven't found the original site yet... it may be Hayneedle ($$$$ - for me)

I'd certainly need to wait a few years for the price to drop before trying them! That would just eat into my plant budget too much Hilarious!

The ones in the link are not the same. They are solid planters not expandable. From what I can find they are not on the market yet.

You're right, Jay. Just realized same name, but Origami is just the name of the design.

There are apparently at least two different designs under the name "origami". I realized the one I posted was different when I just now looked at it. I know I saw the original posters design for sale somewhere... still looking.

I've read articles as late as Novermber 2015 that state that is not available for sale. Of couse it could have come to market since then, but the creators website gives no information about it being for sale just a place to sign up for e-mail updates.

You're right, Jay. They are not available anywhere I can find. So now I don't know what it was I thought I saw, which is not an unusual place for me to be. I'm always very definite until I prove to myself that I'm wrong...
