K-cup Uses DIY Plant Starters
Are you a coffee drinker? Do you use k-cups? Have you ever wondered what type of k-cup uses you could reuse them on? I myself am a big coffee drinker and do use k-cups. While I do try to use reusable k-cups when I can, I do also use regular k-cups. When I do, I try to figure out ways to reuse them so I don’t just have to toss it in the trash. One way I have found for k-cup uses, is to use them as seed starters. Not only can you reuse the k-cup you can even reuse the coffee grounds and the filter too!
Below you will find super easy directions for k-cup seed starters.
- Potting Soil
- Used K-cups
- Garden Tool
First pull off the foil top.
Then dump he used coffee grounds into the potting soil mix. Be sure that it is mixed in well.
Now pull out the filter from the k-cup. This can be tossed into your compost.
Fill each cup with the potting soil and coffee grounds mixture.
Now with your finger, make a hole in the center of each up. It only needs to be about 1/4 inch deep.
Place 2-3 seeds in each cup. I am planting lettuce in my cups.
Using your finger, cover over each hole with the soil from around the hole.
Now lightly water each cup, so that they are moist. To do this, I use a water bottle that I poked holes in the top with a stick pin.
Depending on what type of seeds you plant, they should pop up in 2-3 weeks. Then in about 4-6 weeks you can move them to your garden or pots.
Do you have other k-cup uses that you use? I would love to hear them in the comments.
