Self-watering Container

I made a couple of mini self watering containers for a miniature rose I am trying to save and some peppermint. These work great. You can't over water or underwater your plant (as long as you keep the reservoir bottom full).

I normally make these with 5 gallon plastic buckets, but had these laying around and thought I would make a smaller version. I got the idea off of Youtube.com when I typed in Homemade Self Watering Container.

great idea!

If you just copy the img code under the photo at photobucket and paste it in here, your pictures will display, instead of just the links.

You can also highlight the link you put in your message, then click on Img tool which is one of the series of boxes above the message body text box -- this will automatically bracket the link with img codes.

I'll do one:

You guys are awesome! I'm not too sharp on sending these pictures. :oops:
I will keep trying, however. :)
