OKAY this is a cool way to add some personality to your desk at work, or you work bench.
this simple project looks great requires little maintenance.
It can be completely modified for just about any materials you have.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
-small bottle or similar container (shorter and fatter the better)
-assorted tubes, test tubes, etc.
-seeds, (lentils or alfalfa grow really fast!!)
-drill or hole poking device
-knife of some sort
-glue? is that a material or a tool?

i work at canadian tire and just sold a kid that same knife/hole poking device.
Cool idea!  How does this look with a plant in it?

What plants do you think you could grow to eat?  I can't see anything getting very big in this system, and you'll need to provide nutrients somehow if you want to have something with extended growth.

That's a blood-sample tube isn't it? Could this be finished-off with an example of how it does or should look on your desk? L
