Do you have problems watering your seeds?

Not sure the best way to water them?

I’ve had this problem too.

That’s why I am happy that I came across this DIY project on that I can share with you.

It’s DIY seed watering pot and it will help you to easily water your seeds without having the impact of the water harming them.

What you’ll need

  • Plastic jug of some kind – I used a milk container, but you can use a maple syrup container or something similar.
  • Drill and a 1/16″ drill bit or whatever size you find appropriate.

Make it in two simple steps by drilling

  • A hole in the cap.
  • Several holes in the bottom of the jug.

To use your seed watering pot

  • Fill a bowl or dish with water.
  • Place your thumb over the hole in the cap and submerge it in the water.
  • Remove your thumb and you’ll feel the water being sucked up into the pot.
  • Remove the pot from the water with your thumb over the hole.
  • To water your seeds, put the watering pot over the seeds and remove your thumb.
  • A gentle flow of water should come out from the bottom.
  • To stop the flow, place your thumb back on the cap.

This is a much gentler way to water your seedlings and not damage them.
