Step 1: Supplies
Here are the supplies that you need:
-Rice Husk/Hulls (http://www.homebrewit.com/aisle/p/1898 (On this website they sell the husks for $1.00 a pound))
-Fertilizer/ Manure (I used chicken manure that I had for gardening)
-Assorted seeds (I used Basil)
-Newspaper (For the pot)
Step 2: The Green Pot
http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/chicago_gardener/2007/02/how_to_make_a_n.html- Visit this link to learn how to make a newspaper pot.
An alternative: -If you're not the crafty type, instead of a newspaper pot you could use a terra cotta pot because they last a long time. To make the newspaper pot less leaky you can wrap it with duct tape.
Step 3: Step One
Get the Rice Husk and put it into the pot.
Step 4: Step Two
Put the fertilizer/ manure into the pot with the husks.
Step 5: Step Three
Take 1-5 seeds (depending on plant) and put them into the pot.
Step 6: Step Four
Gently stir the mix so the fertilizer and seeds go to the bottom.
Step 7: Finished!
Water your plant every other day and it should end up as a full grown plant. Thank you for reading my Instructable and please rate it! Feel free to leave suggestions, comments etc.
