A Simple K-Cup Terrarium
Winter sucks, most of us are privy to this simple truth; however, winter is also the best time to dream of spring. While dreaming of the living season, I wondered if there was a way to sprout seedlings with reused or reclaimed materials and K-Cups cameo mind. After all, K-Cups are free; the can be pulled out of the trash-can of any waiting room in any town. K-Cup plastic is polypropylene so they can be sanitized with boiling-hot water. The plastic is white, so labeling it would be is super simple... why not give this a go?
Malva neglecta (Common Mallow) is the seed I am starting with; if you want to know more about mallow, follow this link. I'm starting with Malva neglecta for a few reasons:
- The seed pods were already in my garden and they are easy to sprout.
- It is too early to sprout my garden vegetables.
- I noticed Malva neglecta growing in the shade last summer with huge leaves.
- I want to see if Malva neglecta will grow big and leafy as an indoor ornamental.
