By , August 1, 2016 1:24 am



Update: Watch the results video here: https://youtu.be/igD6uPQHQGk?t=1m53s This video doesn't actually show much of the making process itself. Basically we just put an X in the water bottle cap with a box cutter to let water come out slowly. But here's some much better options for building a drip water irrigation system (click show more to view):

Use a screw top water bottle of your own (like the one in this video) with one of these easy-drip caps (4 pack):
