In this instructable, I will show you how to make a mini greenhouse in less than 2 min and without tools to germinate your seeds.
You probably already have everything you need to make this mini greenhouse. The principle of the greenhouse is to promote the development of crops by protecting them from the weather, and controlling heat and humidity. This mini greenhouse makes it possible to germinate the seeds in full autonomy, as you will see in the video. Do not hesitate to share your productions and results!
You can also find all the steps and a demo of the result in video at step 5 "bonus".
Step 1: Components and Tools Needed
- Plastic container
- 2 plastic hangers
- 1 wooden bar
- Stretch plastic film
I said no tools !!! ;-)
Step 2: Make the Structure
To begin, we will manufacture the structure of our mini greenhouse.
- Clip the hangers on the small sides of the plastic container.
- Then, lock the wooden bar under the heads of the hangers.
Step 3: The Windows of the Mini Greenhouse
Now we're going to close our mini greenhouse.
- For that, we will surround it with plastic film. 1 single layer is sufficient, 2 maximum to let light and heat pass.
I recommend you put the earth and plant your seed before this step. And water thoroughly.
Once closed, you will not need to reopen it before your plant is well pushed.
Step 4: Observation
Now, there's nothing to do but wait for it to grow.
You should normally observe condensation during the day, which drops in the evening.
