7 Thoughts on Wine Bottle Watering

  1. So, how does it work! Nice picture, but what to do with the marbles and wire??

    • Hi Debbie, It’s all about positioning with this one. The wire helps position the bottle in your plant pot, the marbles regulate the flow. This one takes a bit of trial and error but does work šŸ™‚

  2. I looked at this very quickly because it looks to great! But there do not seem to be any instructions on how to put it all together……….. I will try though!

    • Hi Colleen, Use the wire to prop the bottle upright. The marble help to regulate the drip speed. Good luck, be sure to let us know how it goes!

  5. Funktioniert sehr gut. Ich fĆ¼lle die Flaschen 1:1 mit Wasser und Brennesseljauche. So erhalten die Pflanzen sogar noch eine dosierte DĆ¼ngung!
