When we get home for the weekend, the porch plants usually are all dried and dead.
But no effort is enough to please my sweetie, and I came up with a really cheap solution using easy to find items and no hard work at all, at last is it a leisure place or what?
Step 1: The Supplies
The tubing is a thin wall flexible PVC tubing or some other you find convenient, but that can be easily pierced by a siringe needle.
You may go as far as you want about the timer, let´s say a digital one or an internet remote controlled device to spit some water to your flowers. It is up to your need to impress your girl. I decided to go the easy (cheap) way.
Step 2: Put It Together
Step 3: The Power Automation and Astro Space Computing Water Controlling Device
Since all these parts can vary, you can find your own solutions based on what you have at hand.
The real tricks are the insertion of the needle and its fixup.
To open a watering point, just insert a needle pointing to the spot you want to water. Now keep going until you TOUCH the opposite internal side of the tubing with the needle tip BUT be careful to not pierce the other wall. This permits to adjust the needle position by altering the direction of the stream and the tip of the needle just touching the inner wall will keep it from moving away. Nothing that strong but quite effective. And you can always move it as you need. BUT remember - be careful not to go all the way trough or you wiil have no water coming out followed by a leak on both sides. We certainly do not want it.
