Grow your small garden in bottle and decorate your home interior with a miniature ecosystem. Making a bottle garden is fun and enjoyable activity to do at home.

Making a bottle garden is an interesting project for both kids and adults. Bottle gardens are not only a lovely addition to your eco-friendly home décor but also an attractive inclusion to your houseplant collection. With the small garden in bottle, you can create your own herb garden in a hassle-free way.

It is very easy and creative to make a garden in bottle. Depending on the size of the bottle, you can make a unique decoration of bottle garden to function as a miniature greenhouse. You can have either a single plant or three to five bottle plants in your little green house.

For making your bottle garden, following are the things you will need:

  • A bottle or container
  • Potting Soil
  • Seeds
  • Fish bowl pebbles and sand
  • Bleach
  • A long thin stick
  • Sprayer
  1. Select the Bottle: The bottle should be large enough to allow room for bottle plants to grow. You can pick up from a glass fancy bottle to a plastic soda bottle for your bottle garden. Clean the bottle thoroughly by placing a small amount of bleach into a bottle filled with warm water. Rinse the bottle and allow it to dry thoroughly before using it. The larger the opening the easier it’ll be to maintain your bottle garden.
  2. Turn Bottle onto its side: When you will turn the bottle onto its side, this will form the base of the bottle garden. If the bottle is not stable on its side, you can keep it with its face up.
  3. Place pebbles and sand: Add pebbles and sand to the base of the bottle garden by using a small spoon. By doing this you will provide a good drainage base for the bottle plants. Line the bottom of the garden bottle with fishbowl pebbles and wet the sand before putting it in. Doing so will prevent your bottle plants having too much water, which led to fungus issues.
  4. Place the soil: Cover the sand and pebbles with soil in the bottle garden. Use a spoon or stick to shovel planting soil in bottle. Don’t get your bottle filled with soil so that you haven’t left any space for bottle plants to grow.
  5. Plant the bottle garden: Plant the seeds of small indoor plants by using a spoon or stick. Place the seeds in the soil in different spots to make an interesting arrangement of bottle plants. Place more planting soil on the top of the seed with the help of stick.
  6. Watch your bottle plants grow: Tend to your bottle plants. For the proper supply of air and moisture, make sure to perforate the lid or cap of the bottle garden. Use a water sprayer time-to-time to put moisture into the bottle garden.

Tips:

  1. It is always better to under water than over water, as it may cause fungus in bottle plants.
  2. Never completely cover your bottle garden. Either use a perforation or let your jar completely uncovered.

Warnings:

  1. Don’t place your bottle garden in direct sunlight as the miniature garden in bottle can heat up too quickly and will burn the bottle plants.
  2. Always use clean and sanitized bottle for your bottle garden.

Grow your small garden in bottle and decorate your home interior with a miniature ecosystem. Making a bottle garden is fun and enjoyable activity to do at home.
