Last week, my husband and I were on the most amazing trip to the Cayman Islands. This meant that I wasn't at home to take care of my plants. Some of them were fine and don't require being watered very often, but a few of them didn't make it. I hate that. I love my plants, and when one dies, it really bothers me. I also don't like asking someone to come water them...I mean, everybody knows it's a complete pain in the rear to have to water someone's plants, right? Well, no fear my friends! Now you don't have to! You can make your own Automatic Plant Feeder in minutes using a couple of items that I'm sure you can find around your home!
You will need a bottle with a screw top (I'm using a wine bottle with a screw top), a hammer and a nail...that's it!
Simply use your nail to make four or five holes in the top of your lid. Then fill your bottle up with water.
Next, you are going to want to place the bottle face down in your plant.
Be sure to nestle the bottle down in the soil of your plant...pushing it down so it stands upright at a slight angle on its own.
The bottle will slowly release water into your plant as the soil becomes dry, making sure that your plant is getting just enough water! This is the perfect way to care for your plants when you aren't around to do so. If you are a forgetful plant waterer (is that a word?), then you can use this method even when you are at home!
