Bend up the "flap cut" (this is where your plants will merge from) then cut away "feeder hole" (this is where u will water, ventilate your plants from)

Mark a hole in the lid centre for drainage

Use a sharp tool to make the hole where u just marked

Stack your bottles side by side in an old pellet or something to hold them up (i have used panty hose stapled to a board before lol)

Image for Step 7

Bigger bottles can be just cut in half and squash the top half inside the bottom half upside down. Cut a straight line thru any creases and tape secure to get a snug fit

Fill the top with sugar cane mulch then add water to fill the base just above the neck of the inserted section


Your all ready for seedlings or seeds. The vertical "flap cut" bottles are best for seeds as this makes a MICRO GREEN HOUSE :) Have fun n get WILDLY CREATIVE :)
