If there was an award for “creative ideas for small spaces”, mini hydro gardens would win it hands-down. These things are supremely cool, they don’t take up much space at all, and they are nearly guaranteed to produce a big, healthy plant. All you have to do is water it and avoid keeping it in a cupboard or something crazy like that.
The way they work is pretty simple. They start off as a wine bottle (already spreading joy), and then they end up in a recycling facility. Companies like “GrowBottle” take that old, used wine bottle, wash it, cut off the top, sand the edges, and turn them into kitschy planters. The simplicity in manufacturing is really cool, but the simplicity of use is even better.
