I've ran out of recycled containers to start my seedlings, so I decided to make these little mini greenhouses out of plastic drink cups.

    I save plastic cups and I have a dremmel. I could make this work on my narrow East facing windowsills. I,m excited. Snow, cold and sinus infection have me longing for Spring and getting back into the dirt again. I am driving my house plant nuts, fussing

    Is there any outgassing from the plastic in the sun to the new plants?

    I start with seeds to grow everything I've grown. But when i use the clear/cloudy plastic cups. The sun turns the dirt green where plastic touches dirt(all arouncup). and stunted the baby plants growth because the green is from the nutrients consumed
