Recycle Plastic Bottle and Make Self-Watering Plant Pots
Friends, today we are going to talk about the damage caused by the increasing use of plastic and how the plastic bottle can be reused. We will also learn how we can use plastic bottles for making self-watering plant pots and for decoration purposes.
Plastic and our environment
Nowadays our environment is suffering a lot due to the increasing use of plastic items.
The biggest reason for this is that we have made plastic goods for use but the solution for their disposal has not been found.
In a growing country like India, there is a need to pay attention to this.
How to make self-watering plant pots using plastic bottles?
In today’s topic, we have also added a video. In which we will teach you how we can use the plastic bottle again.
You can enhance the beauty of your home, school, college, or any place.
We made this video during our college days with the help of our friends.
Hopefully, you will learn a lot from this video and you will help others to learn as well.
List of Essentials
To make a plastic bottle planter you will need the following items:
1. Plastic Bottle
2. A knife or Cutter
3. Cotton Cloth or Ribbon
4. Clean Soil
5. A Plant (money plant or any plant)
Another advantage of self-watering plant pot
The very good thing after making it is that you do not have to water this plant daily. Because the water level in these bottles can be easily seen. So that you will know when to fill water. And when the water is working, fill the water in the bottle.
You can fill the bottom of the bottle once a week or two.
These plants can be used for decoration inside and outside the house. You can also hang them on the wall if you want.
Depending on the type of plant, they can be placed anywhere inside or outside.
How does it work?
This system works in much the same way a lantern or lamp works.
As such, the lantern keeps on burning as long as there is kerosene oil in its lower part. This oil reaches the upper part of the lantern with the help of a rope or ribbon made from cotton fibers, where it burns and illuminates.
And thus the lamp or lamp also works. In which mustard oil or ghee is used.
Similarly, the roots of the plant exert pressure on the soil, due to which the cloth pressed in the soil draws water upwards due to the pressure.
In science, this process is called sub-irrigation.
