Having an automatic watering globe can eliminate the worry of forgetting to water your plants. With just a few items that you may already have around the house you can make your own automatic plant watering system that requires little maintenance.

Find a long neck glass bottle such as an empty wine bottle.

Wash the bottle inside and out with warm dish water. Rinse it well.

Fill the glass bottle with water.

Dampen the soil of your potted plant.

Place the glass bottle neck down into the soil, making sure the rim of the neck is firmly in the soil.

Refill the bottle as needed.
