Build Your Own Mason Jar Garden — Ep 159

This was the funnest DIY project that I got to do with my father a long time ago: a mason jar garden for the kitchen wall. Originally I wanted to grow herbs here—and tried—but it was near impossible because I didn’t have enough light, so now I use horticultural varieties that typically grow in the understory of forests.

    I love the idea of growing in a mason jar, but not sure how the watering goes. could you maybe explain more on how mason jar growing works?

    You deserved to live in a penthouse greenhouse apartment, if the universe was just. Then you would have the sunlight your passion for plants require.

  14. Peter Cardona on March 21, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    This was always my absolute favorite project of yours! It inspired me to create a smaller version using jelly jars to hold leafy herbs I use every day.

    I have plans to install some shelving to help free up counter space (I actually have no counter space) LOL

  17. Carter Newcomb on March 21, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Is that a Basquiat to the left of the garden?

  18. Bobby Singh on March 21, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    so nice mind

  21. sunspot42 on March 21, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    If the heat rising from the radiator is bothering the plants above, you could try to deflect it a bit by installing a wall-mounted shelf (or shelves) above the radiator but below the plants. It should deflect much of the heat. You could still grow succulents on it, and also use it as a place to hold can lights or up lights to help give the plants above a little boost.

    Awesome!!!👠👠👠

  23. Falconette on March 21, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Not a scrappy DIY plant idea…but, do you think you can make a video on coconut coir, how to use it in contrast to traditional peat, recommended brands, and pros/cons to using coir? I hear it going around a lot and it’s been mentioned a lot as a renewable option to peat, but it also is different and needs to be treated different. I’d like to explore it but a little unsure as to how easy or hard it would be to switch from peat to it for my house plants.

    Many thanks! It is very interesting! Very good! ❤️🌺🌺🌺

  26. Nyoka Steenholdt on March 21, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    How does the roots handle being exposed to light?

  27. Lais Santos on March 21, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    This is such an aesthetically appealing idea! 😍 I really like it!

  28. Twisty Sunshine on March 21, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    How old is Kippy?

  38. gardener on March 21, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I have never been successful growing plants with no drainage long term. I would like it better for a propagation station.

  39. The Movers Club on March 21, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Does algae grow because the containers are clear?

  40. Debra Cancelliere on March 21, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    💚🌱🐓💕

  41. Stephanie Jackson on March 21, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    How do you keep from overwatering plants in jars?

  42. Светлана Шипилова on March 22, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Очень хотелось бы на русском языке послушать)
