Introduction: Nursery Watering Jug

About: Saving the world..... without a cape.

Here's the problem. How do you water these little guys without hurting them or splashing all over?

Step 1: Tools and Materials

1. Empty quart jug

2. Plastic straw

3. Drill and bits

4. Hot glue gun

Step 2: Wash the Jug

Wash the jug and straw

Step 3: Find the Drill Bit

The drill bit should fit snuggly into the straw. You want the hole to be slightly smaller than the straw.

Step 4: Drill Hole in the Cap

Step 5: Drill Another Hole

Drill small air hole in handle, but not through the other side of handle.

Step 6: Stick Straw Through the Cap

Put the bendable side to the outside

Step 7: Glue

Glue both the inside and outside of straw/cap to get a really good seal. Go generous on the glue to help stabilize the straw.

Step 8: Water

Add water. Having your thumb over the air hole can regulate water flow onto plants. Covering the hole will decrease water flow.

Step 9: Have Fun

Keep your little plants happy.
