Using Mugs to Pot Plants

This is a fun and easy gift to give.  These ended up being teacher Valentine's Day presents.

I started with a very dry, clearance plant from the grocery store. . .

. . . and two little mug things I got for ten cents apiece and stashed.

Plants are pretty hardy and this one was no exception.  I divided it in half and put half in each cup.  I added just enough water to dampen the soil and kept it moist for a few days.  It thrived.

This was put into a cello bag with a tag that said "Thanks for helping me grow!"  I got two gifts for the cost of one plant (99 cents) and two mug things (20 cents).  Not too bad!
