DIY Plastic Canister Houseplants


Instead of throwing away your plastic Amino VITAL canisters, reuse them!

Other than aesthetic, houseplants have many benefits, like purifying the air. Since Earth Day is next week, here is a simple way to re-purpose those plastic Amino VITAL canisters into potted houseplants.


Materials needed:

  • Amino VITAL Canisters
  • Houseplants
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Marble nuggets or pebbles
  • Potting soil
  • Gardening shovel

Step 1: Take the labels off of the Amino VITAL canister.1.JPG

Step 2: Paint each canister with the color of your choice.


Step 3: Pour a small layer of marble nuggets or pebbles on the bottom of the canisters.

This will help the water drain since the canisters do not have draining holes.

Step 4: Pour a layer of potting soil on top of the marble nuggets or pebbles.


Step 4: Plant the houseplants into each canister.
