Water-Keeping Parsley Mini-Garden




Introduction: Water-Keeping Parsley Mini-Garden

Make an awesome pot that can be kept in your kitchen that uses only as much water as necessary and protects against over and under watering. This also helps by having no drainage holes, instead there are orbies that protect against over and under watering.

Step 1: Gather Materials

This should take less than 15 minutes to make

You need:

  • Deep clear plastic containerPlastic
  • Orbies or knockoff brand
  • Potting Soil
  • Seeds (I used Parsley)
  • Water
  • Plastic wrap
  • Toothpick

Step 2: Add Orbies

Add Orbies into the bottom, making sure they cover the bottom in at least one layer. Add water.

Step 3: Add Soil

Add potting mix until it is at least halfway up the container and more that twice the planting depth.

Step 4: Plant Seeds

Plant seeds depth specified on package by poking holes in soil. Cover with soil.

Step 5: Water

Add as much water as specified on package.

Step 6: Add Plastic Wrap

Stretch plastic wrap over top and poke holes in it using toothpick.

Step 7: Wait

Wait for it to sprout and grow, watering as much as necessary.
