Are you headed out of town for a few days and need to know how to keep your plants watered while away?There are a few foolproof ways to make sure your plants don’t die while you are out of town. Of course, you can hire a plant sitter but if that’s not an option for you there are still many DIY ways to keep your plants watered while on vacation.
Have you heard? Crazy plant lady is the new crazy cat lady. Houseplants have become more popular than ever. People are hoarding plants and turning their homes into urban jungles. Don’t let your beloved plants wilt and turn yellow because you weren’t home to care for them. Try these ideas instead.
An easy way is with the humble aqua globe. Simply fill it with water and stick the neck of it into the soil. The water will slowly drip out over the course of several days.
If you don't want to purchase an aqua globe you can easily make one with a recycled glass wine or beer bottle. Save a bottle from the recycle bin and use it the same way as the watering globe.
You can also use a jug of water and place pieces of rope or string into the water. Place the other end of the string into the plant and the water will travel down the string into the plant.

Suggested materials:

  • Aqua globe   (amazon)
  • Bottle   (recycle bin)
  • Jug   (grocery store)
