Step 1: Materials Used in This Project
Chopstick or Pencil
Any seed that will stay small as a plant (we used Chamomile)
Step 2: Pour Them Beads!
Step 3: Pack That Soil!
Step 4: Poke Poke Pour
Once you have poked a satisfactory pokily hole, pour in ze seeds! (About 20-25 seeds will be more than enough. Remember, we want to give the seeds some breathing room)
Depending on what depth your specific seed packet suggests, gently take your poker and cover the little seed babies with just enough dirt, as if you're tucking in the cutest little ducklings into the cutest little duckling bed. You know, gentle and caring cause seed babies appreciate a gentle tucking in too.
Step 5: The Miracle of the Water Cycle
*Water from the bottom of the jar will rise as evaporated gas and stick to the sides of the jar as condensation. When the droplets are large and heavy enough, they will slide back down to the dirt as precipitation, therefore watering the plants by itself. It's an indoor rainstorm!
Science rocks, doesn't it?!
Let your Tiny Terrarium sit in a warm, bright, sunny spot and in a few days the fruits of your labor should appear
as little, leafy plants emerge from the dirt and continue to grow as large as the glass bottle will allow them to.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and until next time ;D
