You can go on vacation and your plants will still be lush and healthy.

Don’t you just hate it when you have a couple of beautiful potted plants in your home (cacti not included, of course), but because you have to be away for a while the plant ends up dying? Or maybe you’re just the type who sometimes forgets to water their plants because you’re way too busy with the other things going on in your life. There’s nothing quite as devastating as finding your precious plants wilted and dead because of dehydration!

Well, the AZ Plant Lady has come up with a simple yet phenomenal way to water plants using something a lot of you may have hanging around – wine bottles!

Simply water your potted plants as usual. And then grab a wine bottle and fill it to the brim with water. Cover the top with your thumb to keep the water from dripping out, and then quickly turn the bottle upside down and “plant” it into the soil. Make sure it’s at least 2 inches deep to keep it from falling over.

If you think the mouth of your bottle is way too big for a small pot, we can upcycle the cap too! Just poke a hole through the cap using a nail. Then fill up the bottle with water, screw the lid on, and plant it in your pot. Easy, peasy!

You can even brighten up your little self-watering system with acrylic paint, glitter, or faux glass etching to match your potted plants, just like Linda’s Yard Art did.

The best part about this is that the water is not exposed, making sure no mosquitoes start breeding in the stagnant water. By the time you get back from your vacation or your days of forgetting all about your plant, you’ll see that your little plant is as lush and healthy as if you had stuck around and watered it every day!

Every Woman Should Learn This Effective Self-Defense Choke Hold

Take note, ladies!

It is an unfortunate fact that a huge number of women are becoming victims of violent crime. According to the statistics shared by the Feminist.com website, “over 22 million women in the United States have been raped in their lifetime” and about “18.3% of women in the United States have survived a completed or attempted rape.” The site further mentioned that “every 90 seconds, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.”

What makes the situation even sadder is the fact that these numbers are merely for the United States. Just imagine how those figures could blow up if we consider what’s happening elsewhere in the world!

With this in mind, it is extremely obvious that learning self-defense should be a priority for females.
