Instructions on Making Your Own Simple Glass Planters

Supplies:


Clean out your jar. Add at least 1-2 inches of rocks (or marbles, etc) at the bottom. Add tulle or mesh if you want to see the rocks after planting. Use at least 6 layers of mesh to filter out the dirt from water that comes through. Arrange the mesh similar to an open bag with the bottom on the rocks. Fill the mesh bag with damp dirt to make a plug. Fill the rest of the jar with damp dirt. Add your plant or seeds to the dirt at the top. Re-water when jar appears empty of water or dirt appers dry. Until it has adjusted, the new plant will need frequent watering. The amount of dirt and water a plant needs depends on what type of plant it is. Herbs like basil want alot of soil, but not as much as tomatoes. Broccoli, pumkins and squash like their roots spread out, but still need alot of soil. Succulents need very little soil and very little water. Another accessory you can use is straws that run from the rim of the jar down into the rocks. This allows for easy, quick refill of the water drain area, for plants like tomatoes that consume a lot of water each day. Use at least two straws, one or more cut level to the top of the rocks. Add water to the long straws, allowing air to escape out of the short ones.
