Make a Mini Greenhouse

You can make a miniature greenhouse for indoor plants from a large plastic bag. Water the plant well, then push tall bamboo stakes into the soil. The bag shouldn't touch the foliage, and the bamboo will keep it from the leaves. Place the plant inside the bag, and seal it tightly with a rubber band or a twist-tie. Make sure the plant is away from direct sunlight. Your mini-greenhouse will sustain the plant for as long as three weeks.
