Going away for holidays? Worried about your plants?
Here is a Green project to gift yourself some extra peace of mind and save our environment by re-using more plastic bottles ! 🙂
How to make self watering pots in 4 easy steps –
- Cut an X on the cap and slit holes on plastic bottle near the opening
- Cut desired length of the wick
- Arrange the wick through the X cut and inside bottle
- Add medium and plant
For wet loving plants, the wick can be inserted fully in reservoir. For drier loving plants, the inner pot can be inserted higher from water source with thinner wick. Thus, adjust as needed based on plants’ preferences.
This is another wicking method taught by Stella Lee in 2017 out of beverages carton. Absolutely practical and space saving ideas!
