Learn with this step by step how to save space for your plants with recycling material.
Materials to need:
- A 10 liter plastic bottle.
- Pair of scissors.
- PVC plastic tube.
- Paint the color of your preference.
- Plants to plant.
First, take your 10-liter bottle, remove the plastic from the spout, the bandage that is in the center, until it is completely simple. With the help of your blade, cut it so that the upper part is a little smaller than the lower part.
With the help of the scissors, cut out the entire contour of the figure, cut at the top, that is, the side where the beak is located. Try not to trim too much, just a little to perfect the edge.
Take the lower part, with the blade cut it into two. With the part that has the bottom, also cut the outline with the scissors to perfect the edge.
Measure your PVC pipe with the meter, mark exactly 25.5 centimeters with the marker, and proceed to cut this piece of pipe with the saw. For this step, I recommend asking for help or doing it very carefully to avoid accidents.
Now stick the piece of tubing into the spout of the plastic bottle. To do this, apply a little pressure with your fingers so that the tube enters. Remember to only stick a piece of the tube in.
Using the soldering iron, poke 5 or 6 holes in the cut-out bottom of your plastic bottle. The excess water that your plants have will come out of these holes.
In the same way, open about 5 holes with the soldering iron in the plastic cap of your 10-liter bottle. It is important that the holes you make in the lid are not very large but not tiny.
Once this is done, proceed to paint with the brush and paint the color of your choice. Start by painting the top of your bottle with the tubing inside the spout and then the bottom.
When painting, do not paint on the part of the holes, that is, on the base. Look carefully at the way this step is done in the image. Remember that you can paint them in the color of your preference.
Place the top of the bottle with the pipe in the spout inside the bottom, that is, with the part of the tube inside and the hole facing up. Spread a little dirt to keep this figure in the center and push it a little with your fingers.
In the open part that is at the top, place your lid with the 5 holes, with the flat part facing down and the open side facing up. Then proceed to pour your soil very carefully so that the lid does not move.
Once this is done, proceed to place both the top and the bottom your plants to plant. They can be plants of any type or species, the important thing is that they are very well located in your pot.
Observe in the image the way in which the plants are placed. You can lean on a spatula, but this is optional. It will depend on the type of your plant to plant.
Finally, just place your plants in the place you want the most, and voila! You will get a good pot for your plants in no time. Very easy to do and with few materials.
