Stuff you need
-The infamous Carmex container

Step 4: The Plant

Go outside and carefully take a blade of grass (With the Root) out of the ground and stick the root inside of the dirt of the container.

Now you are done with your beginners blade of grass, give it a name and water it every time you water your lawn. The amount of water you need is in the lid, just fill it up halfway and water your plant.

    very cool Have you tries other small plants or moss?

    Thanks, I haven't yet but I might try experimenting with plants that wont struggle with a small space like a small cactus or something.

    cool You could also use smaller or coloured craft sand for a different look

    Awesome idea, I love the simplicity of it!
