Do You Know How?
I had a 5-day vacation planned not too long ago. I didn’t know how to take care of my plants. So, I thought of a simple, cheap way to water my plants when they needed it.
I’ve tried hanging water in a polythene cover above the plant pot and making a small hole in the cover with a pin so that the water drips into the plant pot. But if you choose this option, water will leak from the polythene cover into the pot drop by drop, whether or not your plant needs water. On the other hand, I had to tie too many polythene covers to all my plants. This is yet another bad thing.
Taking these problems into account, I came up with a new way to water plants. A few hours before leaving for vacation, I put water in a tin and tied ropes to it. I then put one end of the ropes in each plant pot (deep inside the pot).
If I leave it that way, I won’t be able to move the rope inside the water. So, to make it work, I put a small stone in the water and tied it to the rope to stay in the water.
When plants need water, they automatically pull water through the rope. It doesn’t give the plants too much water.
Only note: water tin should be above plants.
Guess what? It worked perfectly!
I’m back home after five days, and not a single plant is dry. All of the plants are healthy and green.
Here is a picture of how I have things set up. I know this doesn’t look good, but if I showed you this picture, you’d be able to see how I’ve set it up.
