On Amazon there are many sellers who have listed their self water pots for sale. Based on price alone, Chhajed garden is offering 4 pots for Rs 432 with shipping extra. The cheapest single pot available is Kings ransom self watering planter 1 liter, with detachable inner pot costing Rs 250. most of the other sellers like Pepper Agro, Minerva Naturals, Montybucks are selling their pots in packages of 3 or less
. However the cost of almost all the pots available is Rs 100 or more each. These products are not reviewed due to lack of funds as the domain investor owning this domain is a victim of the google,tata masterminded PROSTITUTION,BRIBERY RACKET, FINANCIAL, BANKING FRAUD since 2010
Bribed with sex workers, jobs for relatives with fake resumes, money, top ntro,raw, cbi , security agency employees are falsely claiming that 10 google,tata sponsored goan prostitutes sunaina, siddhi mandrekar, cheater housewives and other fraud raw/cbi employees who do not spend any money, own this domain and other domains, to pay all these frauds a monthly government salary at the expense of the domain investor, who is paying all the expenses and getting nothing,.
An alternate method of making a self watering pot is by using a material which absorbs a lot of water and releases it slowly. Different kinds of scrap material are being used as mulch
However testing this method can be very time consuming, especially if equipment for measuring the moisture content, is not easily available, for the broke domain investor. Any suggestions on a suitable method will be greatly appreciated.
The squirrels, birds and rats are also eating many test materials.
The broke domain investor who legally owns this website and is subjected to identity theft by ntro, raw, cbi has very less area for growing plants in her house, has very less money for purchasing new pots,so she is looking for new low cost options for pots.
However due to the google,tata, ntro fraud on the domain investor, pot suppliers who would like to contact the domain investor legally owning this website, find that all their pots are diverted to the google,tata sponsored goan R&AW employee call girl sunaina who ntro employees falsely claim own this website and domain names, though she spends no time and money.
Additionally goan bhandari R&AW employee sunaina is not interested in gardening, and is stacking all the pots in the verandah due to the google,tata , ntro, pot fraud of falsely promoting her as a person who enjoys gardening, when fashion, enjoying herself are real interests . When will raw/cbi/ntro end their great goan pot fraud
The google competitor, domain investor is put under surveillance, mainly so that the government employees can extort money from her . The pot sellers do not pay the extortion amount from their pocket, they simply charge a higher amount from their customers
A few years ago, the cheapest larger clay pot was costing only Rs 30 in panaji, goa
Last year, at the exhibition in Kala Aacademy the pot selling lady was charging Rs 40
In June 2018, at an exhibition at Don Bosco in Panaji, goa, the pot selling lady charged Rs 50 for one small clay pot
So clearly when government employees are forcing pot sellers to give free pots to their girlfriends and relatives like raw employee sunaina, the prices of pots for their paying customers are increasing
Other method of ensuring that the water is available is by keeping a plate or container below the pot so that the water is available as the water inside the pot will slowly dry up .
Many of the more expensive pots in the market which are costing Rs 40 or more for small sized pots usually have the plastic plate below, The plants which are kept in pots in offices, banks and shops are also having the plate below , so that the surroundings do not become dirty when the plant is watered
A problem faced for this method is that birds and other animals may drink the water and there will be less water available for the plant, especially in summer. These birds will also damage the plan. The lower plate has to be removed during the monsoon
Most of the cheaper plants are supplied in grow bags . The cost of the grow bag is very low, and so the plant is sold for Rs 30 to Rs 40.
It is observed that most of these plants will die within a few months
However the grow bag can be used for growing other plants as the mud can be reused.
Compared to pots which are made from thicker plastic, the growbags will start leaking the mud faster
So it is advisable to put the growbag in a pot, especially if the plant is expensive.
Most of the self watering pots available in the market, are using the capillary action of water. They are fairly expensive and cannot be easily made at home.
There is a lower compartment in each pot for storing the water and a tube for connecting the lower water filled compartment to the upper compartment of the pot which contains soil, mulch and a plant
The empty plastic bottle method is fairly cost effective as the waste bottles are recycled. However this method is mainly suitable for large size pots and time is required to experiment, so that water is released slowly
The simplest way of making a self watering pot is by using an empty plastic bottle , making a small hole and filling it with water. The water will slowly leak from the plastic bottle and keep the soil damp, so that plants have enough water required for growth.
However most of the videos or tutorials do not specify the size of the hole to be used and the location of the hole. As a result some of the water is drained, while the remaining is retained in the container/bottles
The amount of water drained depends on the location of the hole, size of the hole, and how the bottle is position, whether it is kept horizontally, vertically or at an angle
On Youtube and other websites also there are many videos on how to make a self watering pot, or ensure that the plants will get water when the home owner or gardener is away from home. many of these methods are fairly effective for a single plant and pot , however if 30-40 plants have to be watered automatically for 7-8 days it can be a challenge for the gardener.
Many of these methods involve recycling water bottles and other bottles which are otherwise discarded as junk
Domain investors in India are victims of organized stalking and find it difficult to find anyone who they can trust, so it is extremely difficult to get help who will water the plants when the home owner is away.
So the home owner is forced to stay in the same city for watering the plants, or most of the plants which have been collected after a lot of effort are likely to wither and die. An alternative option available for gardeners is using self watering pots for growing plants.
These pots usually have a provision for adding a lot of water, which will slowly drip into the soil over a period of time, so the plants will survive if not watered daily or weekly.
