Indoor herb garden

This is a very fun project I thought of way back as a project for school. The assignment was to create a creative disign for a flower or herb garden. I used a cigar box (note that I dont smoke I am under 18 and that would be wierd) for the pot. my teacher found this very creative and gave me 30 out of 30 (whoohoo). as you can see in the image all of plants are dead, this resulted in a unexpected trip to Seattle (yay), but all my plant died (awww). This instructable has been created to let you use your own creativity to create your own plant project, not recreate my project. By this time your probably thinking "no I cant do it without you RastaMonkey". Yah I know thats why I am giving you a detailed list of instructions and tips to help you out.

Step 1: Stuff u will need

plants have lives just like us and they need the proper living envirornment to live and thrive in. to create this wonderfull plant land you will need to aquire the following items:
1.A pot of some sort, this is where your creativity comes in (I used a guitar box)
2. plants how ever many that you want (be sure that they all fit in the pot) get ones with growth instructions that you can actualy manage to follow ( if you live in greenland you want want some tropical plant)
4.plate or tinfoil for drainage IMPORTANT: if your pot does not have holes in the bottem or you dont make holes in the bottem your plants will die. the plates for the water to drain into.
5.awl or some thing that makes holes in things (this is if your pot does not already have hole in the bottem for water drainage).
6.sun and water (duh)
7. decorations (we will get into that later)
