Kitchen Window Sill Gardens and Recycling Plant Containers

Kitchen Window Sill Gardens and Recycling Plant Containers

This is a fun idea I thought up the other day. I was in the garage and I noticed some of those plastic containers for plants (the one’s that your annuals and perennials come in at the store).

I thought, why not make this plastic container into a real pot? So we got out the glue gun and some of those fancy glass stones and tiles from the craft closet.

And we glued the stones onto the container like this:

Over the past few weeks we’ve been trying to propagate multiple geraniums from one geranium plant. You simply cut off a stem portion like this:

You can stick it in water to see if it will start shooting out roots.

Or, you can simply insert the stem into a pot. We filled our newly crafted container with potting soil and stuck in our geranium stem.

And here is our kitchen window sill with all our recent greenery. A big thanks to my Mom who propagated both of the philodendron plants from an original “Mamma” plant and gave them to me. I brought both of these plants up to Alaska from Oregon (in my suitcase on the plane). They made if safely here and are surviving.

I hope that our new geranium plant takes off. We will keep you updated.
