Problem 1) Too many trips to the sink.
Go to the sink, fill your water can. Water a plant or two. Go back to the sink and fill the water can again. Repeat as necessary. Five trips? Maybe ten? Maybe more?
The other problem with traditional water cans? Overshooting the plant pot. Water ends up everywhere. Most of us really don’t like or need to water our floors.
Buy a 2½ gallon spring drinking water container. As a bonus, you get to drink the water first.
Then, cut about a 1½ inch hole in the back top side of the container for refilling it from the kitchen sink.
This really works great. Make it possible to water many plants with far fewer trips to the sink and also gives you pinpoint accuracy with water delivery.
Problem 2) Watering hanging plants
For hanging plants, especially high hangers, just place a handful of ICE CUBES into each hanging pot. Added benefit? As with problem 1, you will have no spillage and no added mess to clean up.
If you are a little more motivated, you can even customize your ice cubes by adding some house plant fertilizer to them. Two birds with one stone. (Beware!!!! Make sure Grandma doesn’t use them for her evening elixir)
