You meant well when you bought that houseplant, but despite your best efforts you just couldn’t remember to water the poor thing. Your salvation is here and like many wonderful things it kills two birds with one stone by keeping a wine bottle out of the recycling bin.
Simply bury the clay stake in your pot’s soil leaving just the opening above the soil. Then, fill an empty wine bottle or other glass bottle (champagne, beer, Orangina, Perrier) with water and tip it upside down into the stake. Your plant will drink happily for weeks.
Bonus! It’s an excellent way to remember the name of the superb wine you can never remember to buy.
