We all, except vegans, have eggs in our fridge. Eggshells are practical to use, the damage to nature is tumbled down because they are organic, biodegradable. The seedlings in eggshells can be planted directly into the soil. Not only are eggshell nutrient-rich for your plants, but it is also rich in calcium. It also lowers soil acidity and fertilizes your plants.
Fill the shells with soil
Fill the eggshells with moist soil, slightly little lesser than the top of the shells. If you do not own any soil, or you are considering buying one, we recommend the BioBizz Light-Mix soil mix, which promotes the ultimate basis for sustaining strong growth of seedlings, young plants in cuttings.
Why grow seedlings in eggshells?
Clean the eggshells
In any case, if you bought the eggs at a grocery store or have homemade eggs, it may be safer to wash the eggs under warm water. This causes the risks of salmonella, etc. You pierce the bottom of an eggshell with a sharp object like a needle. That the easiest thing to do from the inside out. To help drain water, divide the eggshells back into the egg carton.
Seedlings need some light to grow, so put them in a sunny spot. Water them lightly. Check daily to keep the soil moist, but it must not be wet. Then it’s only a matter of time. Depending on which seed you planted, most of the seeds will sprout in less than a week or two.
You break the eggs
If you want it not to be a difficult task, some care must be taken in exactness so that the shell is preserved in the form of the two best vessels.
Starter plugs can be made out of all kinds of natural materials like moss, or wood bark, which are ingredients that are perfect for starting cannabis seeds. They’re generally moldable like play-doh, and all you have to do to use them is add a bit of water and then press your seed inside. In no time, you’ll have a healthy little sprout in a completely biodegradable material that will protect the developing roots and break down quickly.

Just like the eggshells that we throw in the trash, the cartons we hardly give a second thought to, aside from taking the extra step and putting them into the recycling, are fantastic things useful for so many DIY projects, including starting your own cannabis seeds. They don’t even need holes to drain, because any excess water will slowly seep out of the paper sides. Just fill the cups with dirt, plants your cannabis seeds, and in a couple of weeks, they’ll be ready to cut apart and plant as is.
Peat pellets are one of the most popular biodegradable temporary pot plants for starting cannabis seeds, because they’re relatively cheap, easy to find, and require little work to use. All you have to do is to soak them in water until the peat absorbs enough to rise to the occasion, and then plant your seeds and wait for the magic to happen. The only issue with peat pellets is that they do tend to produce mold if they’re watered too much, so if you use them, make sure to keep everything surrounding the pods as dry as possible.
