3. Put the seeds into the jar
4. Place the rag over the top of the jar and fix using the elastic band. Cut the excess rag off from around the sides and piece the rag to create a small hole (small enough that seeds won’t come out of). This will help the water flow from inside the jar.
5. Fill the jar up with water and adjust the twine so that the jar is facing upwards.
