New (to me) plant containerMay 12, 2008
I read a post last week about recycling plastic water bottles, 2 liter bottles, and milk jugs into planters. This seemed like such an easy project, I just had to try it.
I cut the top third of a plastic water bottle off, then put a little bit of cloth in the mouth of it to act as a wick, and a holder for the dirt. I put my dirt on top of that, stuck my plant in and I was done with that part.
I put water in the bottom half, sat the top half into it, and I was finished. :) It was that easy. The great thing about a water bottle repurposed this way, it fits on my extremely narrow window sill.
I’ll take pics of the next ones I make. I think this will be a great way to reuse these bottles, start herbs, and put pretty growing flowers all over the house. Another great thing about this is, I will KNOW when the plant needs water, I will be able to see the water level at all times.
