August 5 — self watering cloth pots
I developed some self watering cloth pots and posted it on instructables
This cloth pot makes growing indoor plants more convenient. Includes wick that can be put into a water reservoir so…www.instructables.com
Turns out the setting on the 100W Kaitian brand laser cutter at Noisebridge that works on pretty much any 100% poly fabric is: 100mm/s speed and 7% power.
100% poly gabardine
100% poly burlap
I tried a gabardine bottom and a burlap bottom, and in the end decided that gabardine would be better for wicking
Some progress photos from sewing
This is the wick design I made. The loop goes in the pot so you can make the wick go near the plant roots.
