Choosing a glass container

You will need a glass container that is deep enough to accommodate the plants’ roots. You can use either an old glass bowl or one specially made for growing plants. Note: if the container was previously used, wash it thoroughly before planting flowers in it.

Almost any container will work:

  • aquariums
  • vases
  • kettles
  • tureens
  • lampshades
  • wineglasses
  • glass bottles
  • chemistry flasks
  • Wardian cases of different shapes
