Learn how to upcycle a plastic bottle to make a self watering planter. Useful, cost effective and easy project!
I like plants but I'm pretty bad at taking care of them! I can only take care of two kind of plants: cactus because you never need to water them and papyrus cause you always need to water them....anything in between is a problem!
So I wanted to give a try with a self watering plant pot, the kind when you water to much or to little the plants don't die right away! And of course, nothing better than a recycled version!
If you are looking for other upcycling planter ideas, you can have a look at the ones I made with milk carton and this other planter made with a bucket!
Add soil and put your plant in it. Water it, the excess water remains in the bottom of the bottle, and if you forget to water the soil stays wet anyway....
Materials I used for this project:
