Life Support for Plants
I confess. I'm a plant serial killer. I can't keep a houseplant alive for more than a couple of months, and I'm sick of smuggling their corpses out of my apartment when no one is looking.
Until yesterday, I'd given up indoor gardening for good. Then I found this brilliant solution from a website called Vitamin Living. They offer the wonderful product shown above: the "I.V. Self-Watering Pot." It's lovely, and it should prevent unnecessary deaths. Plus, it will give your apartment/bedroom/jail cell that desirable emergency room atmosphere.
UPDATE: One of our readers (thanks, Patsee!) has offered an ingenious suggestion. If you put red food coloring into the I.V. water it would look as though you're raising PLANTS THAT DRINK BLOOD! How fantastic would that be?!?
