I’ve written before about how I am a notorious plant killer. I was worried my house plants would die while I was on vacation last week. That’s why I’m so glad I came upon this tip from RadMegan. She has a tutorial on using old bottles as “aqua globes” for watering your plants. I have some of those aqua globes for my smaller plants but I didn’t have one big enough for my palm tree. I grabbed an empty beer bottle and cleaned it out. Filled it with water and quickly flipped it over and shoved it into the dirt. The water will slowly release into the dirt. The bigger the plant, the bigger the bottle you can use. I am happy to report I arrived home to all my plants alive and happy!
