One finished automatic feeder

Pot and reservoir together. Water in the reservoir is almost up to the bottom of the pot itself. The wick supplies the right amount of moisture to the plant. The reservoir must be refilled about every third day. Start the wicking action by top watering the plant. Check every few days to be sure the wick continues to work.

Neat idea and you got me there! I thought it was going to be an automatic bird feeder. I need a bird feeder that will hold more seed as I have lots of birds at my house.

Grinning! Around here I'm the only 'automatic' bird (and squirrel) feeder. The Blue jay hollers and I have to rush outside to feed his majesty.

It's snowing like crazy tonight so there is going to be a real crowd at the feeder in the morning.
