The Space Pot

The Space Pot is a cylinder to grow plants in a space station. A regular plant pot won’t work in zero G because the soil and seeds will fly out. First, you put in a sponge that fits in well. You put the seeds in after the sponge because the seeds will fall out. You put in water, and make sunlight go through the holes. Then, you put the top part on the ceiling. You have to rotate it so it can get even light. I think the Space Pot will help astronauts because it can grow a lot of plants at the same time because it can grow through the holes. Also, it will grow more and they won’t take up more space and you can make more space pots. Then, imagine how many plants you can grow with a lot of Space Pots. That is how the Space Pot will help astronauts in outer space.
