Step 2: Make a Mark!!

Divide the bottle into 3 line (the middle one should be slightly small) and make a circular mark using a pen.

connect the middle to the bottom bottle
note: be careful of using the blade cutter :)
Step 4: Cap of the Bottle

- pull the thread (leave at least 2 inches of thread for the bottom)
use of thread: thread will be the one to connect into the plant to slowly get the water
Step 6: Soil, Plant and Water
- pour soil for at least half of the bottle
- then add your plant (the plant must be small and will not grow for at least 5 inches above tall)
- add some water for the bottom of the bottle
- then connect them together :)
