What you need:

Instructions:

  1. Poke a hole in the egg carton or cup to allow for proper drainage.
  2. Scatter a few rocks in the bottom. This will allow the water to come out without taking all the soil with it.
  3. Fill the egg carton or cup about ½ full with potting soil.
  4. Plant your seed by placing it on the soil in the middle of the cup.
  5. Place a small amount of soil on top of your seed until your cup is about ¾ full.
  6. Water your plant, but don’t use too much water.
  7. Place your plant in a sunny window.
