  1. Gean Sanders says

    I think it would be cool to make these for each of your kids and let them water them and watch them Grow

  2. I have seen this done with a soda can body. If I use the can, is there a way the water in the can could get up to the head?

  3. Its AWESOME:) I made one for my sister:) she LUURRVVEEDD it:):)

  5. we did this at school but put in a stocking and but that sinting on a jar with the rest in the jar of water.

    the instuctions are exelent

  6. We left some of the stocking as a neck and dangle it into a jar to absorb up water. you dont have to water it often that way. also soil instead of sawdust is what we prefered.
