The Diet Coke that Keeps on Giving
After enjoying the cool refreshment of a Diet Coke, bought on sale for 99 cents, I removed the label and cut the bottom off.
The bottom makes a perfect drainage dish for plants. I'm using this one for a small pot where an African Violet leaf is rooting.
The top part turns into a mini terrarium for rooting plants. In this one I am trying to root a clematis. This also works well for rose cuttings. Leave the cap off for air circulation. In early spring or late fall when there is a threat of frost you can use this with the cap to cover outside plants.
This is just one small way to reduce, recycle and reuse.
I am always on the lookout for items to reuse in the garden or with my houseplants. I often save small round or square plastic bowls from frozen dinners or take out salads from fast food restaurants to reuse as drainage dishes. It keeps a few items out of the landfill and why pay good money at the store for the same thing you or someone else is throwing in the garbage?
This black plastic dish once held a "Smart Ones Lasagna".
