Soil Cube

With this hand carved tool, people will no longer have the need for plastic or paper growing pots which in extension have a negative environmental effect. By simply compressing the soil in to cubes, the user has a perfectly good growing pot for a plant to sprout. This cube and sapling can then be directly placed outside or in an ordinary pot for continuous growth.

During compression the soil needs a high water amount in order to stay in shape, but after compression the cube can be dried out to house a hibernating seed. The dried cube can then be stored/transported over a longer amount of time to then be used by simply rehydrating the cube.
