Gardening Tips: DIY Self-Watering Planter
Whenever I go off for a holiday, I always worry about my little potted plants. The other day while browsing FB, I saw someone sharing a simple way to keep the plants hydrated while we are away. I decided to give it a try to see how reliable it is.
All we need is an empty water bottle.
Make a tiny hole on the cap. Just one tiny hole will do.
A hole this tiny is sufficient.
Fill the bottle with water.
Put the lid back on.
Place the bottle vertically in the pot and cover it with some soil on the sides to stabilize it.
I’ve tested this on my potted plants to discover that a small mineral bottle can keep the plants hydrated for up to 2 days. I’ll need a bigger bottle for a longer period away from home.
