Self Watering Containers – Pop Bottles
I frequently want to have indoor plants (specifically herbs and veggies that suck up a lot of water) but don’t want to have to think about them every day. Self watering containers seem to be the answer to that problem. Commercially they can be a bit expensive- using recycled containers is cheaper (practically free) and seems to work better! Plus, it’s really easy to get your hands on empty 2 litter bottles right now and after the zombie apocalypse. Here’s a quick tutorial on how you can make your own waterers in just a few minutes. If you want them to match your decor, you can always paint the exterior parts that show. I prefer to leave them clear so I can see the roots growing.
