Step 4: Making a pot
I used an old bean can. Other ideas are:
Half a Gatorade bottle
Old plastic cups
Almost anything will work.
Here are the steps to making your container plant friendly.
1. Open it up. Take off the cover, cut off the top. Whatever your container, make sure it's open. No plant wants to fight for the sun.
2. Make drainage possible. Punch holes in the bottom, and put gravel down under your dirt. This makes sure your plant's roots down drown.
You also need a small platter (in my case an old plate), to catch the water coming out of those holes you punched.
Now, fill that baby up with some good, rich dirt. and get ready to plant.
