DIY Easy Hanging Propagation Station
Propagation stations are all the rage because let’s face it, who doesn’t want to make more plants for free? However, some of those premade ones you see online can be kind of pricey. No need to worry though, because we’re going to show you how to make your very own hanging propagation station using just a few materials!
What you need:
- Wood Plank
- 3-5 Glass bottles
- Hot Glue Gun
- 1” Drill Bit and ½ “ Drill Bit
The first step is to drill the holes. Using your 1” Drill Bit, drill 3 evenly spaced holes into your plank of wood, leaving about two inches on each end.
Now, switch to you ½” drill bit, and drill a smaller hole at each end of the plank, about 1” from the edge.
Now that all of your holes have been drilled, it’s time to attach the rope from which your propagation station will hang! Cut a piece of rope about 3’ in length, Going through the top of the plank, each end of the rope through the smaller holes on either end of the plank, and tie a knot. Trim the excess rope.
The next thing you need to do, is to seal the end of the rope so that it doesn’t fray or come untied. Do this by using a hot glue gun to secure the knots to the bottom of the board and then glue down the ends.
It’s time to add the bottles! Simply slide the tops of the bottles through the bottom of the board and you’re all set. If the bottles seem a little loose, feel free to run a little hot glue along the inside of the hold to help keep them in place.
Just like that, your propagation station is done! You can even add a couple of extra bottles on top to hold extra cuttings! So, hang your station, fill the bottles with water, and start growing more plants!
