LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

IF YOU CANNOT HATCH A CHICK, YOU MIGHT AS WELL SPROUT A PLANT WITH AN EGG

As we are now researching on how to efficiently sprout seedlings and harvest them, we would like to share this neat little eco tip with you guys.

You might have done this when you were young, sprouting something in an eggshell. Avid gardeners do it too, for very good reasons.

First, you use a penknife to score your preferred opening top diameter on an egg.

Then use the knife to tap or cut the top off slowly.

Remove the lid and use the egg for a delicious dish. Wash the eggshell.

Plant your seed in this little eggshell. Wait for it to sprout and be strong enough to be transplanted.

Prepare a bigger pot and get ready to transplant.

 Make a depression deep enough for the egg. What you need to do next, which is very important is... YOU NEED TO CRACK THE EGGSHELL, with a spoon or whatever you have handy. This is to allow the roots to be able to grow and spread into the bigger pot.


And then you are done. Eggshells are probably the most efficient transplanting vessel. Not only are they biodegradable, they also add calcium to the soil when the water flows through. Eggshells also help to keep pests away in the compost! This will make a cute little seedling pot as a gift. Make a note that goes with it to educate your friend on the function of the eggshell with the seedling. The life of an eggshell sure goes beyond the consumption of its content. If you cannot hatch a chick, you might as well sprout a plant with an egg.
