20 Ways to Tell the Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Throw the Bottles Away

Self-watering planter made from recycled bottles. This actually works. Though I had to use the plastic bottles. I just fill up the bottom to cover the mouth every 2 weeks or so. My herbs stay nice and healthy now! Great for saving plants over winter.

Make a self-watering planter: Cut bottom off empty plastic bottle. Poke a hole in the bottle cap using wooden skewer. Fill with water, making sure you get a slow drip of water through the hole with skewer in it. Put in your flower or vegetable planter, making sure skewer is in the dirt to hold the bottle. Great for hanging planters to keep them watered! Refill with rain water or hose as needed.

HACKABLE :: Wet Pots by Wet Pot Systems :: (no longer sold :( waaah!) | gardeners.com :: Swedish self-watering planters. Plant absorbs moisture as needed thru the porus clay inner pot. :: REALLY bummed these aren't being sold anymore, to say the least. So, I tested this with an unglazed terracotta pot (the kind that already have a bumped out lip at the top quarter or so of the pot & put it inside a straight sided glass container from the dollar store. It works! | #selfwateringpot #diyplanter
