These bottle gardens will be a perfect solution for your problem. You can still enjoy the herbs that you plant indoor without worrying about watering them. The first thing you need to do is cutting a glass bottle. It may be a bit tricky so you can just have it cut. Or, you can use plastic bottles, instead. Then, sand the cut so it won’t be hazardous when touched. After that, get a 2”x2” screen and cut a small hole in the center. Pass a string through the hole and tie a knot. Place the screen and string in the bottle. Make sure the rest of the string is longer than the bottle neck. Place the bottle that has been filled with dirt and herb in a glass filled with water. The string will transfer the water from the glass to the herbs. 9. Skinny Planter Stand One of the most common ways of indoor gardening is growing plants in a window box and place them by the window. But you can opt for a more stylish idea just like this skinny planter stand. It is actually a window box that is supported with four square-aluminium tubes screwed on it. The succulent in the window box provides a timeless charm with the minimum of fuss. And the gold finish of the tubes will complement your mid-century modern home well. 8. Baking Tin Planter Who would have guessed a baking tin can make a superb planter? And the best thing of it is that it is affordable and can be made within 10 minutes. But the look will always sweeten your home décor. You only need to get a round baking tin, flip it on a polymer plastic sheet, and draw an outline until you get a semi-circle shape. Then, cut the shape out. Apply gorilla glue around the edges of the baking tin, and attach the plastic. Press down the plastic hard and make sure it is attached to the baking tin perfectly, otherwise the water will leak out. Then, you can begin to insert the drainage by adding stones and gravel to the tin, and a layer of potting soil on top of it. Finally, plant any herb you like. 7. Mason Jar Hanging Planter Harness the versatility of some mason jars to grow some herbs in your kitchen. It is an easy project for any novice. You only need to get some mason jars and fill them with pebbles or seashells as the drainage. Then, add a layer of potting soil and the herbs. Wrap around the jar neck with a wire and hang the jar anywhere you like using a hook. But hanging the jars near the window in your kitchen would be the best as they can get sufficient light. Besides, you can grab them in a jiffy if you need them when cooking. 6. Tray Pot for Succulent This tray would be a cool wall art for your living room, or a beautiful adornment for your kitchen. However, this is not the common tray that you usually use to set down snacks and drinks. It is a special tray that you can get in a nursery or on Amazon. The tray features 72 cells that you can use to grow plants with shallow root systems like succulent. Each cell has drainage hole that prevents your plants from over-watering. To make the tray look more epic, frame it with boards and hang it on the wall. 5. DIY Vertical Clay pots An apartment dweller has to put up with limited space. If you don’t have enough space to grow your favourite flowers, why don’t you just hang them and go vertical? Vertical gardening is the best solution for limited space. And these vertical clay pots will allow you to grow some plants while saving more space because you will have to thread 2 to 3 clay pots using rods and washers and hang them on the ceiling using concrete anchor and threaded eyebolt. 4.

Fill each glass with pebbles as the drainage, and transfer your herbs to the glass. Finally, put each glass into the open space in the Vurm. You’d better label each glass so you won’t mistake a certain herb for another. 3. Wood Trellis Plant Wall Incorporating living things as your home décor is such a great idea. And this wood trellis plant wall will make a pretty good focal point for your vintage or contemporary living room. You only need to attach some boards on the wall, and arrange them to form several diamond shapes. Then, make some holders from leather or any leftover you have at home to save more bucks.
