How to Make a Coconut Shell Planter!

So, I had this great idea! I don't know if it's really that great...I guess time will tell us. But, I'm really excited cause I like how it ended up. Into the subject...I made some toasted coconut the other day. When I finished and I was cleaning the mess, I looked at the half empty coconut shell and thought...''It's so beautiful...do I really have to throw it away?...Aw I don't wanna throw you away...I'm gonna keep you...but I have to find something to do with you cause otherwise Phillip will found you and he's gonna take you away from me!''...Tada! There it came...the best idea I had for a long time. Coconut shell planter!!! I had already opened the eyes of the coconut to take off the water so, water strainer: ready! The negative was that the holes where big enough to let the soil run away. I solved this problem easily, by putting a used coffee filter in the inside of the shell. Then, I filled with soil, planted a seed, watered...ready!

What you'll need:



  • Half of a coconut shell (the one with the eyes...the eyes must be open)

  • Used coffee filter (a new one will also work, but I recommend reusing your old ones...less rabish  to mama earth, plus the coffee residue will make a great organic fertilizer for your baby seed)

  • Scissors

  • Seeds

  • Soil

  • Water

  • Love


How to:



  1. Line the coconut shell with the coffee filter.

  2. Cut off the excess paper and please, recycle it.

  3. Put some soil in it. Plant a seed of your choise. I choosed cactus (the yellow thingy in the middle of the soil is the lucky cacti dude, my friend Daphne picked from the seed bag)

Now cover with a tiny bit of soil and water generously. Be careful! Don't drown it! That's it! Now all you have to do is talk to your baby seed a little bit and make sure there's enough moisture, so it can grow!

If you try this, please let me know how it goes. If you have any questions or suggestions you can comment below. I'll be very happy to answer...
