Trash Hacker: Plastic Bottle Cap Planter

Reuse your green onions and a plastic bottle, too! Kolika Chatterjee has a trash hack that’ll bring spring greens to your kitchen window.

By Kolika Chatterjee

Remember my last post with plastic bottles where we cut the tops off and grew spring bulbs? Those tops will come in handy now. Next time you chop off the bulb part of your green onions/shallots, put them in a little (1″ deep) water and watch them spring out into edible, almost never ending shoots. By far the most forgiving plants ever! With enough water and daylight (direct or otherwise) there’s no stopping them. Of course unless you drown them.
