A nice idea if you have a new seed (especially for kids) and want to give it a better chance is to create your own ‘Mini Greenhouse’! All you need is an empty soda bottle!
Plant your seed in a plant pot as normal. Cut an empty soda bottle in half (a 1l if you have a small pot and a 2l if you have a larger one). You will be using the top half of the bottle with the lid. Once you have cut it to the size you need, place it in the pot plant shielding the seed (as in the picture below).
To water the seed all you need to do is pour water through the lid of the old soda bottle. Keep the lid on if the seed you have planted likes a humid climate.
And there you have it – you own Mini Greenhouse!
