Container Gardening

Starbucks Cups

These are great for tiny container gardens or as small starter containers for plants that will get bigger and need to be planted in a larger container.

Paper Cups, usually used for Hot Beverages work great as temporary containers or as small starter containers. They last about 30 days under normal watering conditions, after which the plant can be removed from the container or the withering cup can be dropping (or stacked) inside a newer cup and you can get another 30-days growth.

Plastic Cups, usually used for Cold Beverages work great as containers for hydroponically grown plants or as semi-permanent miniature gardens or terrariums.
