DIY irrigation system, plastic bottles as sprinklers
Here is a DIY irrigation system that is very effective and simple to make; all you need is several empty plastic bottles and an awl. On the cap of the bottle you will have to drill two small holes with the awl, making sure that each hole is really small, so that once the bottle is turned upside down, the water drops in a drop.
At this point, take the bottle, fill it almost completely with water and cap it. Your do-it-yourself irrigation system is ready: you just have to take the bottle so made and put it upside down in the soil of the plant. If you have to stay away for several days, you can also put multiple bottles in the same jar, in order to ensure a greater yield of your small craft plant.
