Make your own moss world (string ball planting): Kokedama Tutorial | Miss Moussetache aka Mimimou I love this idea. I think I may try transferring a lot of my herbs into this type of planting when I have a covered patio. Looks like it would be a great way to create a "living wall" that will separate space but still leave it airy and fun.
"EarthTainer" Self-Watering Design: "The InnTainer which is based on an 18 gallon tote incorporates a self-contained 3 gallon water reservoir. Users can now go for weeks between watering intervals, for unattended operation."
5 gal bucket, upside down colander, pipe fitted through top of colander, & a straw to vent overflow. Add soil and plant and you have a "self-watering" planter with about a 1 gal reservoir at the bottom.
