Thanks to this trick, your plants will survive your holiday

This watering system is easy to make and doesn’t require many materials!


  • A plastic bottle (one per plant)
  • A small drill

How to create a watering system for your plants

First, fill the plastic bottle with water. Then, drill a small hole just below the cap. Next, place the bottle upside down in the soil of your plant. Make sure the hole is at the bottom, touching the soil. If done correctly, the bottle will not empty immediately but will release water slowly over the coming week. Repeat this process for each plant!
