    I was wondering how you were going to secure the weed barrier, string rubber band, etc, and then you use the ring from the lid! Great Idea!

    I've watched about five videos on this self watering container. Maybe it was just me, but I didn't understand them. Your video was very concise and perfect. I now know why the fill hole is there and the drain.. I'm sharing your video, with others. I think the others, felt they were talking to gardeners already. You handled it, so those who have never dug a hole. could grasp the concept. I'm also subscribing.. Thank you, for your video.. Next growing season I can have my hot peppers without the fear. of cross pollination.

    Not self watering add a funnel 2 your clear hose 2 catch rain water or just use a regular black plastic pot with drain holes it's cheaper

    Is it intentional that videos like this have a dog or a cat wondering around? Does that bring more likes and subscribers?

    I've watched Leon's channel on bucket gardening and it seems that one of most important part of this process that you did not follow was having a needed space for air around between the water and the soil in order to avoid root rot. The second part I noticed was that you did not provide the right ingredients into your soil mixture so that your plant gets a good healthy start.

    I’m worried about the soil leaking into the water. I used gravel, it’s holds soil and won’t contaminate the water

    You don't need to compact it.

    This is a very impressive demonstration, but in the time it takes to construct one of these, you can make 4 or 5 the way others have described using PVC inside and two buckets. The Chinese restaurant in our neighborhood throws out their 5-gallon sauce buckets, and we have 22 of them that we did not pay a penny to get. The PVC was also obtained for free from a nearby construction subdivision, where there were many pieces of scrap that the contractors were more than happy to not have to put in their dumpsters. We used yogurt cups with 32 holes drilled in them for the wicking basket, and we put coconut coir as the wicking medium. It takes me about 4 to 6 minutes to make one of the double container planters, and with the PVC, it is easy to put liquid fertilizer, epsom salts, and rock dust in with the water.

    Best of all, they are just light enough so that we can start non frost-hardy plants indoors in our sun room and move them outside after the first frost, which is why we already have Peruvian hot peppers, Mortgage Lifter tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and yellow squash in Middle Tennessee in May.

    1. Great "costless" if you just happen to have this stuff around. I had to buy the big stuff. 2. One aspect doesnt make sense. I would pack spagum moss or coconut mat or lightweight weed block cloth or recycle a plastic grocery bag and poke a lot of fine holes in the sides – a dinner fork works good- to allow water in, to line the basket to keep the soil from washing out of the basket slots when you add water to the bottom. Otherwise the soil is loose enough that no matter how tight you pack it, as soon as it becomes saturated it will liquify in the basket and wash into the reservoir. The over-mound is just enough excess mix to hide the cavanation that has occurred at the bottom. 3. I used a scrap of pvc water line tubing for the fill tube, put it on the inside of the bucket and drilled a hole thru the platform. It was what i had in the garage, too much money spent on a diy isnt worth it. The next one I make I'm recycling nursery pots with holes drilled in them instead of buying a basket However i love the idea and l'm planting a zucchini in mine this year.
