I too used to do something similar. I used small clay flowerpots, and sealed the bottom drainage hole with epoxy. Then I covered the top with landscape fabric with an X cut in the top, which held in the soil nicely but flexed to allow the plant to grow out with ease.

Both materials breathe, which helps avoid the soil going anaerobic and causing the stink Frogsandfish observed. I'm wondering if that might be an long-term issue with your product, which appears to be plastic with only a small hole in the top for oxygen to reach the roots.
