Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Making Hole on the Bottle

Take a useless water bottle and make two holes of diameter about 5 CM just opposite to each other as shown in below images.Mark each whole as L and R respectively

Step 2: Add Water and Soil Into the Bottle

Now we will add water into the bottle the level of water must be below the holes
Note-You can also add small amount of soil in water but it's depend upon the plant used!

Step 3: It's Time for Plantation

Now bring a Scindapsus aureus plant from somewhere (It can be propagated from stem cuttings so you can take it from an old plant)
Note-It's not necessary to use Scindapsus aureus you can use any 'Hydropronic' plant(but in case of other Plants you have to add extra minerals in water)
Reason for Using Scindapsus Aureus Plants and It's Benefits-
1-Scindapsus Aureus is one of the best plants to purify air polluted with synthetic chemicals from furniture and cleaning solutions. It energizes the home by filtering air and increasing oxygen inflow.
2-Special characteristic of money plant is that it can grow in a water-filled container without any soil. It can survive in a bottle filled with water alone for a reasonable time, if you simply keep changing or refilling the water. Although many plants can be grown hydroponically, money plants can survive on the naturally occurring minerals in plain water, without the addition of nutrients

Step 4: Final Step!!

Now we will tie upper end of the bottle from thread and now we can Hang it anywhere in our home, maybe wall or roof!
And your Home air purifier is ready. Is not it quite easy and simple? If yes then you should also try it and let's make our environment clean by using these simple looking ideas๐Ÿž
