I realized that after a recent move I had several of these plastic bins that were just being stored away in the attic and I thought maybe it would work as a larger hothouse.
Step 1: Materials Needed
I have also done this with smaller containers but am finding I am enjoying the larger containers
Step 2: Closeup
Step 3: Putting It All Together
Plumerias are a tropical plant for those of you who donât know what they are so they thrive in this environment. I have tried other seeds and they seem to do well in the hot house but I have to take them out sooner than the plumerias.
I use a potting method for the seeds similar to the ones described in this site but I purchased an item from Burpee seed catalog that is really a large wood cylinder that you wrap a 10 by 3.5 inch piece of newspaper around and press into the base to make a pot.
As you see I put the top of the container as the base and put the clear container over it.
I put water in the area of the lid so that it doesn't go over the diffuser and keeps a himid environment. (see humidity on the sides of this container.)
