Intro: The Polystyrene Gets Green
Well, I was thinking of the office which I spend nearly 9 hours a day in, and I needed to change something.
I had a long time thinking, until I saw that piece of expandable polystyrene going out of some box, and that was the spark of what I think a great idea.
Well, instead of throwing it a way, I put some sweet-smelling shadow plant. By that, I got some benefits such as:
- Recycling something.
- Getting nice creature growing everyday, which by the way gives a lot of hope.
- Getting the nice natural smell in the office.
I think it is very good idea, as we see lot of thing thrown away everyday such as plastic bottles, polystyrene stuff ... etc.
Step 1: Choose Your Materials
Now we come to gather our favorite materials, as shown I chose apiece of black squared expandable polystyrene, and I bought some Sweet Basil seeds.
So you'll need:
- some container of your chose(get sure it doesn't leak).
- seeds for you plant.
- potting soil.
- hay (for covering the soil).
Step 2: Fill It With the Soil
For the Sweet Basil seeds, it must be plant 1 centimeter bellow the soil surface.
Fill the container with soil without the last centimeter.
Step 3: Prepare the Seeds
Prepare the seeds by getting them out of the package, putting them on a tissue for example.
Now spread them wisely in the container, make sure you put the seeds all around it.
Step 4: Get Everything Done
Now cover the seeds with the last centimeter of siol, and you may like to cover the soil with some hay.
Step 5: Water for Life
Keep on watering it, and you'll get a nice natural peice of life to your desktop.
Hope you like it !
