Spiked drinks for plants: "The spikes will slowly release a steady drip of water deep to the root system, keeping the plants healthy while minimizing evaporation. You can even add fertilizer to the water to help nourish the plants."
Household plants need nourishment, particularly in the dead of winter when sunlight is limited. Plants love starch, save the water you boiled your potatoes in, let it cool and use it to water your household plants.
DIY Drip Irrigation System, Made from Plastic Bottles
DIY Drip Irrigation System, Made from Plastic Bottles. The system is super simple. All we have to do is grab some 2-liter plastic bottles, punch 2 holes into the sides and 2 into the bottom, and plant said bottles next to our plants. Fill them with water and our plants will get that slow watering they prefer. For more information about the project, visit Fine Craft Guild.
