Plant watering

Although I adore my indoor plants, I must admit I sometimes forget to water them. With temperatures increasing again in the Netherlands, I started searching for indoor plant self-watering systems. However, most of these systems are either unsightly or very expensive. Until I stumbled across this coke bottle watering globe DYI.
I bought my coke bottles at an ordinary supermarket (Jumbo and Albert Heijn should have them), but any glass bottle with a long bottleneck should work just fine.
Water your plant first to make the soil moist. Fill the empty (and clean!) bottle with water and add some plant nutrients if necessary. Put your thumb over the top opening of the bottle and turn the bottle upside down. Next is the most exciting part of this DYI... Quickly remove your thumb and push the bottle into the soil. Easy peasy.
