I saw this on-line somewhere a while back so I thought I’d give it a go since I’m stoned. DIY Starter pots made out of paper. The example I saw was with newspaper (not sure the effects of ink, if any) but I used the brown paper that Amazon stuffs in every box. I have enough to circle the neighborhood twice.
So, here’s how I did it. I’m thinking some masking tape might help but I didn’t use it. I’m also not using the pot yet but I might my next grow.
Get yourself a square piece of paper.
Fold it in 1/2, then in 1/2 again.
It should be closed on one end and open at the other.
Fold over about an inch (I did a little too much in the photo and re-did it). with the fold facing inward, roll it around something the same diameter as you want the pot to be. I used my air lock stash container.
Wrap it 1.5 times around and cut off excess. Fold in the bottom, seam side first, and press down to make a good sharp crease.
Untuck the flap and fold it over the outside. You’ll need to work it a bit and I had to tear it where the overlap was.
Presto! You have a pot!
Now, If it works and doesn’t fall apart, that would be great.
