Make a Self Watering Container from 2 litres bottle.

Ok, guys, today I want to write about saving our money again.
All of us probably have seen self-watering containers in the shops or markets. Some of us probably use them to grow home garden seeds. They are really good for those who have to visit their family or friends during the summer and don’t want to kill their plants and vegetables. But these containers cost a lot. Not everyone can afford to buy them. I am also guessing that some of us wanted to build self-watering container themselves, they saw a lot of tutorials on the Web but 95% of the tutorials ask to buy garden containers anyway, drill them and all that sort of things.  I don’t know about you, but am too lazy to do that (I know I shouldn’t say that but at least I will be fair with myself 🙂 ). But today I’ve found the tutorial for making a self watering container from 2 litres bottle and I think this is the easiest and best way to make it. It takes maximum 10 minutes and costs virtually nothing. You will be able to plant home garden seeds straight away! Have a look on the video-tutorial from Youtube. I hope you’ll find it useful. 🙂
P.s. If you are busy and can’t spend a lot of time in your garden, you also may want to buy vegetable and tree Ooze Tube.

    Thank you for the tip. How long does the wick last before it can’t wick anymore…Does the wick smell after awhile? 🙂

  • admin says:

    I think it won’t smell, because it is constantly under a fresh water (it is fresh because you have to refill bottle periodically). I don’t know how long it lasts for, but it must be for quite a long time 🙂

    I have tried this method of making a self watering container from a bottle, and you know what it works flawlessly. The wick is performing good so far. And may be yes, it will not smell due to fresh water.

I wish I could be read better in Spanish, but I found a great site that will be of help with my veggies. Most tutoring net companies just sell netting and have no real expertise in agriculture. Hortomallas has a great library available to farmers as tutora means tutor as referred to a plant. I ran into this site by mere chance as I was trying to find the ideal product to tutor my backyard vegetables, and did not know that using netting reduces viruses and fungi. I will try now to go 100% organic!
