Step 1:

To start off you will need a regular lightbulb.Then you can use a screwdriver or diamond filers to either cut the metal completely off or just poke a hole through it like I have done here. After this you will need to wash out the dust inside that gives it a white tint.

Step 2:

Next use the tweezers to put dirt and the plants inside the lightbulb. The plants that I have used normally is moss or small clovers and other plants appear later that we're apparently in the dirt.

Step 3:

Now pour a little bit of water in and seal it with a cork or tin foil or pretty much anything you can find to seal it.

And voila! You can make tons of these and make a tree out of them or just put it in your window sill

    This looks really cool. But will direct sunlight cook the plants?
