Picture of Simple Green House/Seed Starter
In this instructable I will show you how to make a simple green house out of a clear plastic container.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
-seeds
-dirt
-clear plastic container
-paper towel  
 

you can also use old egg cartons or egg containers, they are already shaped as little pockets.. and with the cover act like a mini greenhouse just like your system. and if you don't get any sunlight in your apartment try checking out the life seeder .!

I use the nice deep ones that cream cakes come in from the local supermarket bakery, of course that does mean my better half has to buy cream cakes regularly to keep me supplied but that is a sacrifice she doesn't seem to mind making ;-)

I do this but use cupcake containers similar to this that I buy from the supermarket. I then use very inexpensive and decomposable small starter plant pots that come in connected sheets. I water the inside of the plastic wells instead of the dirt so the pot wicks up only what is necessary to keep the soil damp.
Once it grows too big for the plastic container I transfer the plant making sure to rip up the decomposable pot's bottom so the roots have an easier time spreading.
Very inexpensive and you get to treat yourself to what are usually excellent cupcakes!

I have tried this too a couple of times because I´m always short in small greenhouses and containers. But I never became healthy plants. What did I do wrong? I did it the same as your instructable.
