Make this! indoor tiny lawn...


I just threw some perlite in the bottom to encourage good drainage in these lil' containers with no holes in the bottom, topped it off with cheap soil and even cheaper grass seedon the top. I watered it only with a spray bottle until it was THOUROUGHLY established, which took more than a week. Until it germinated I kept them in a clear plastic bag to keep the temperature up in my chilly windowsill. They have to be "mown" frequently to keep pushing energy back into the roots. The smell is marvelous and then I compost the clippings. Voila!

Now I water them like crazy because there's so much roots jam packed in there but they are doing super well!
