Hello, I'm Gail Gates, and today we are going to talk about how to make a drip bottle for your plants and the reason is to water them while you are on vacation. All you need is your basic house plant, a clean bottle bottle of water and a pair of scissors. So let's take our bottle of water and a pair of scissors or you can use a sharp knife and just drill a little hole in the top of it and then all you'd do is turn it upside down and shove it into your plant.
