This is a handy trick, especially if you like to take cuttings, or start seeds, or try to grow different kinds of plants.
During the year most people drink some kind of soda. When you’re done with the soda, don’t throw those bottles away! Save a couple and make a miniature greenhouse.
Here’s what you do:
1. Cut the bottoms off two plastic soda bottles
2. Fill one with a moist mix of sand and potting soil, remove the colored-plastic bottom-rest from the other
3. Put in 6-10 cuttings depedending on how large they are, or plant your seeds
4. Fit the two bottoms together
Depending upon what you are growing, it can take about six to ten weeks for your cuttings to root. It may take less time to germinate seed, again it depends upon what you are growing.
You can then transplant them to a pot filled with soil and let them grow on for another month or two. By then you will have a plant ready to go out in your garden.
