Are you going on vacation soon?
And you wonder how your plants will survive while you are away?
No need to find someone or pay for a service to water your plants!
Fortunately, there is an automatic system to easily water your plants when you are not around and prevent them from dying.
The trick is use a saucepan filled with water and yarn. Look :
What you need
– 1 large saucepan or 1 basin
– 1 stool or 1 stepladder
– wool thread
How to do
1. Fill the pot with water.
2. Place it high on the stool.
3. Place your plants around the stool.
4. Cut the woolen thread into several fairly long pieces.
5. Wet the pieces of wool.
6. Put one end of the wire in the bottom of the pan.
7. Bury the other end in the earth at least 2 cm deep.
There you go, now you know how to water your plants during the holidays 🙂
Easy, fast and efficient, isn’t it?
No more plants that died of thirst while you were away!
If you don’t have woolen yarn, you can also use cotton twine.
You can also put a basin instead of the saucepan.
To go on vacation in peace, it is important to provide sufficient water.
Especially since the water tends to evaporate when it’s hot!
Count 1 liter of water per week for about 2 plants.
So if you go 2 weeks, count 2 liters of water.
If you go 3 weeks, count 3 liters of water.
Why does it work?
By raising the water pan, your plants receive a regular supply of water.
The water flows gently over the woolen thread as soon as the plant is thirsty. The liquid is transported by capillarity.
In addition, it works for all types of plants: green plants, succulents, succulents, flowers, etc.
