My little mini greenhouse

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 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 by the sun green is bad. So I recomend colored cups or tin foil around them for bottom cup top cup can be slear for freen house effect...
