Introduction: Water Less Planter

Low Water Gardening Challenge 2016

Runner Up in the
Low Water Gardening Challenge 2016

This is an instructable to water less your planter.

Step 1: Items

Items for Subterranean Water Reservoir

  1. 1 planter pot
  2. 1/2 cup of Water Gel / Beads
  3. 1 ice cream cap (trash that is usually get thrown away or sent to recycle center)

Step 2: The Cap and the Beads

  1. Firstly, I put the cap upside down inside the pot
  2. Then, I transfer the beads and put it on the cap.
  3. Lastly, I fill the planter with dirt and plant my favorite plant.
  4. Now, I can enjoy the summer without worrying to babysit (plantsit?) my plants.

Note:

Because the beads retain the water and the cap hold any excess water, it will be sometime before the plant needs watering.

HAPPY MAKING!
