Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
1 Empty Tic-tac container (with all the paper off of it)
1 small piece of paper towel
some seeds NOTE: you must choose your seeds wisely, choose plant/flower seeds that have small roots.
Step 2: STEP 1
Begin by cutting the paper towel so it can fit the base. this will be used as an absorber in the event that you pour too much water that way it can me sucked out by the roots later. It should be no higher than 0.5cm (0.19 inches).
Step 3: STEP 2
Fill the container with dirt until 1.3cm or 1/2 inch is remaining. (i didn't fill it up all the way so i could save soil)
Step 4: STEP 3
Place your seeds evenly remembering the Materials page:
NOTE: you must choose your seeds wisely, choose plant/flower seeds that have small roots.
Step 5: STEP 4 the Final Step!
Water it evenly and place the cap on it!
When you place the cap on the container, it creates the greenhouse effect generating heat thus growing the plants.
When the plants grow higher, remove the cap so they can reach higher.
ONE LAST IMPORTANT DETAIL: Do NOT keep the cap on all the time, you can either take it off or open the dispenser cap so the plants can get fresh air.
Thanks and Happy Planting!
