The bags are packed, the plans for the getaway have been perfected but then there’s just one errand left on the way: who’s going to water your prized plants while you are gone?

It is enough of a question for you to panic of course because some plants need more water than others at an interval that is closer than others. Plants are also the heart and soul of the garden. They secure the curb’s appeal and they sure set the tone of the home. If this is an issue, it is time to get to know some self watering ideas to help you. 

Self watering ideas all have one common structure: a water reservoir placed at the bottom and the actual planter on top. All you have to do is to drill a hole in the middle where the water will flow. Make sure that the suction is cut depending on the water needs of the plant because you are avoiding overwatering or dehydration here.

The best thing about self watering ideas too is that you do not have to look far or spend much in looking for a container. Hard plastic bottles, old wine bottles, soda bottles and improvised planters could be used in many self watering ideas.
