Step 1: Materials and Tools
-Plastic bag(bigger the better)
I decided to plant pepperoni
Step 2: Prepare the Seedbed
Take the plastic bag and attach it to the fruit box with the stapler, like in figure.
I used three plastis bags, but I counsel to use only one bag, because the water go out of the seedbed when filled,if you use more of one bag.
You can cut the superfluos parts or not.
I know, it don't really look good, but it works, specially if you use a strong plastic bag.
Step 3: Fill the Seedbed
If you want to do a good job, you have to fill the seedbed with three layers:
1) hydroscopic cristals
(see the pictures)
The seedbed also works if you use only terrain, the most important thing is the attention that you give at the plants.
Step 4: Seed!
Select a type of plant ( i used pepperoni ), make some holes in the terrain and put the seeds inside.
I have also made a irrigator: i've made some holes in a pringles tube to don't damage the plants when water.
