How to Make a Homemade Waterer

by LaToya Jayson

Going away and can't get your plants watered? Make your own waterer!


  • 1 Hammer
  • 1 Water bottle
  • 1 Nail
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    You will need a water bottle

    Step 2

    A hammer...

    Step 3

    And a nail... (I don't know what size this nail is. You can just eyeball whatever nail you use. Just remember the bigger the nail, the quicker the water leaks.)

    Step 4

    Take the lid off the water bottle

    Step 5

    Place the nail at the center of the lid

    Step 6

    Hammer the nail through and then remove the nail

    Step 7

    Full with water and replace with the altered cap. Make sure to not fill to the top. Also, once you tip it, be careful of a little stream of water that may come out.

    Step 8

    Bury the waterer (top down) into the dirt of the plant. Try to be close to where the roots are.

    Step 9

    And there you are! This should last about a day or two depending on the temperature outside. If you need it to last longer, use a 2-liter soda bottle instead. Enjoy!
