DIY Seed Starter Greenhouse
What You’ll Need:
- Empty 2 Liter Bottle, cleaned and rinsed out
- Sharp Scissors
- Plastic Wrap
- Rubber Band
- Potting Soil
What You’ll Do:
- Rinse and throughly clean out an empty 2 Liter Bottle.
- Using scissors, cut 2 Liter bottle in half horizontally.
- Grab the bottom half of the 2 Liter Bottle and cut a 1 inch deep v-shaped notch into the rim. (See Photo Above)
- Using plastic wrap, fold a piece into an approx. 3 inch square with 2 layers thick.
- Unscrew the bottle lid and fasten the plastic wrap square over the top of the bottle with a rubber band.
- Poke several air holes into the plastic wrap using a fork.
- Fill bottom half of your 2 Liter bottle with potting soil.
- Plant your seeds and add just enough water until soil is moist.
- Using your thumb, press in on the v-shaped notch and place the top of the 2 Liter bottle over the bottom. (If the top doesn’t fit over the bottom try making your v-shaped notch bigger)
- Place 2 Liter Bottle Greenhouse in a warm area of your home that gets plenty of bright filtered daylight.
- There is no need to water your seeds… the moisture in the soil and additional moisture from the greenhouse above will keep the soil moist.
- Watch your seeds grow, and once your seedlings are well established and ready, you can begin hardening them off to prepare them for transplanting outside!
