This is a short tale about a life of a nursery pot;
“It was all meaningless, until one day the gardener picked me up from the stacks of pots. Excited and nervous, I accepted what he added to me, and patiently, I sat in the scorching sun and took a bath in the water.
Several days passed in this wait, and the gardener’s smile told me that there was a sign of the first foliage leaves. This gave me a hope to live, and the hard heartened sun rays became more bearable as I realized what beauty I was holding and flourishing within myself.
It wasn’t me alone now; I had a mate who I held on to.”
Imagine all the bottles you throw every day, every week, why not re-use it by planting a seed? For all the bottles we usually throw away, we could have a nursery of our own. Is it that difficult? Isn’t it much better than piling them up in various places in our city?
For all you’ve got to do is;
- Take an empty bottle (preferably at least 1 liter bottle).
- Spray paint if you wish.
- Cut a rectangular piece horizontally from the bottle.
- Make small holes on the opposite side of the rectangle cut (for excess water to go out).
- Place soil in the bottle (in the rectangle you’ve cut) and seed or a grown plant (whatever you wish).
- Make two holes on two side of the rectangle and tie a rope through two holes so you can hang.
- Put hooks or nails where you get sun rays.
- Hang your bottle and regularly water it.

Here you go you have your own bottled plant!
So, now you know it’s not that difficult to re-use the bottles and avoid unnecessary wastage. You could plant them in any other way you wish in a bottle this is just one of the ways to do it.
