A Plant in a Boot!
Both my boyfriend and I planted them in the dreary winter and now they are beautiful!

  • Step 1

    Buy a children's, or adult size boot and make sure you can take out the padding (so that it is entirely rubber or plastic).

  • Step 2

    Put a bunch of pebbles at the bottom of the boot, filling the entire foot part so that just the ankle/leg part is empty. (this will help drain the water so that your soil doesn't rot)

  • Step 3

    Fill up boot with soil almost all the way to the top and plant your plants! Spider plants are perfect for this because they grow outward and eventually down.

  • Step 4

    Don't water too often! Since it has no holes at the bottom, you don't want to over water it because your plants might die or rot. I water mine every 10 or so days.

I want to try this, do you think putting holes in the bottom may help drain the water and keep the soil from rotting?
