Making your own mini-greenhouse with 2-liter bottles is a great way to protect your seedlings or cuttings from harsh weather conditions and pests. This hack is easy to make and can be a cost-effective alternative to purchasing a traditional greenhouse.
- Protects seedlings and cuttings from harsh weather conditions such as frost, wind, and excessive heat.
- Provides a controlled environment for seedlings to thrive in.
- It can be an affordable alternative to purchasing a traditional greenhouse.
- Cut the 2-liter bottle in half using scissors or a knife.
- Discard the top half of the bottle.
- Fill the bottom half with soil or potting mix.
- Plant your seedlings or cuttings in the soil.
- Place the top half of the bottle over the bottom half, creating a mini-greenhouse. Secure the two halves together with tape or string.
- Place the mini-greenhouse in a sunny location, and make sure to water your
seedlings or cuttings regularly.
- Once the seedlings or cuttings have grown big enough, transplant them to a larger
pot or directly into the ground.
Note: It’s important to make sure that the mini-greenhouse has adequate ventilation to prevent excess humidity, which can lead to fungal diseases. You can create small holes in the top or sides of the bottle to allow for airow.
