Miniature Greenhouse / Mini Greenhouse

Miniature Greenhouse
Miniature Greenhouse

Miniature Greenhouse is for planting potatoes for areas with dry soil where people suffer from hunger. In this method, large 5-gallon clear plastic mineral water tanks are vertically cut in half in the middle and the two halves are connected back together on one side by wire clamps. One half is filled with fertile soil, and the other is used as a lid to maintain the moisture in the soil. The number of tanks can be as large as required to grow all necessary plants in length or width of the tanks for short or long-rooted plants accordingly. The transparent tank will allow the sunlight to reach the plants and it acts as a small greenhouse.
