One bucket at a time

One very sound and waterwise way to water pots plants is to place each pot in a bucket of water and let the soil soak up the moisture. This only takes a few minutes. It is only necessary to do this watering when the soil in the top few centimeters of the pot is dry. I learnt this from the tips for wollemi pine care website. Even in the hot recent weather this watering method last for over a week.

This is an ideal use for the "first" flow bucket collected in the shower.
