Clever Woman Has A Unique Way Of Watering Plants





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!
