Need some help watering the plants while you're out of town... or maybe forget about them while you're in town. :/ Save up a few wine bottles and corks and make yourself a plant nanny.

    Becky, how long did it take the water to drain out?

    Vivian, for the ficus tree I put them in there almost 4 weeks ago now and both bottles still have about 1/3 full of water. I'm really thinking about making bottles for ALL of my plants.... I just need to find a few bottles that are a little smaller for some of my tiny pots.

    Joni, check out my blog so you have the step-by-step directions. The cork shouldn't be letting in any dirt.
