New Watering Device
This by chance, is the first place I have decided to talk about my idea for a new way to water some indoor plants . All you need to make this device is a microwave plate cover like the one shown which can be found here in Canada at Dollarama for about $1.50 . Then you need to drill some small holes all around the middle of it,as well as a bigger hole in the center for the stem of the plant. To get the stem at the center of the device you will need to cut a slit at one side, or else cut the device in half then put it back together around the plant. Of course you will be turning it upside down, and then just fill with water or nutrient mixture. Obviously you will only be able to use this in a pot that is large enough ,and with a plant where the plants branches arent coming down low near the soil surface . As you can imagine the water will drain through the holes at an equal rate, so this is definitely the best way to make sure you are watering your soil evenly all around the pot. No more holding a water can,or pitcher,moving it all about, just hoping you are getting all the dry spots ,and not overwatering other areas ! The more plants you have the more time and energy you will save. Hope everyone will give it a try ,and will let me know how it works for you !
