I have five hanging plants in my house right now. Three in our bedroom and two in our office. I love them an inappropriate amount. But they were always a hassle to water until my mom came up with the most genius idea.
Just throw a few ice cubes in there.
It's perfect. The ice melts slowly, giving the plant and dirt time to properly absorb the water. Ice cubes are drip free and spill proof. And best of all, I can reach up and drop in an ice cube (I can't just reach up and pour in water).
I love this idea so much that I've started throwing ice in all the plants. I just walk around the house with the tray and drop one cube in with the small plants and two in with the big ones about once a week. It's been months since I've had to hold a plant funeral so this is totally working. Thanks, Mom!
ps. another tip...turn your plants every few weeks or they'll grow toward the sun (like that one in the last photo) and here are a few more tips for raising indoor plants.
