Wine Bottle Plant Nanny

Wine Bottle Plant Nanny

Here's a green way to solve one of our biggest problems: forgetting to water plants. Not incidentally, it also provides a good reason to polish off a few bottles of wine...

No, no, those plants aren't boozing it up. That's the Plant Nanny in action. It's a terracotta stake that's just the right size for a empty wine bottle; you just fill the wine bottle up and tip it into the Plant Nanny. They'll last for a while; it depends, of course, on how thirsty your plant is.

A set of four runs $18—not cheap, but that is less expensive than replacing a nice houseplant. We found them online at Olive Barn.
