There's no longer any need to ask your neighbor to water your plants while you're away. Craftzine's houseplant wicking system offers a very simple solution: Cut some cotton strips. Soak one end in a bowl of water. Bury the other end in the soil of each plant, which in turn keeps the roots moist without drowning them.
- Cotton fabric
- Large bowl of water (taller than the plant's container)
- Small bowl of water (smaller than your plant's container)
