There is this old guy like 91 and he lives out in Aumsville and he waters alot of his plants with cotton ropes and milk jugs. He says it lasts several weeks. The cotton rope wicks up water from the jug and it waters the plants just lay the rope through the soil like a drip irrigation hose. I am guessing the rope does not wick up nutrients from the water so you get pure water as long as the rope isn't died with ink or something. I imagine this would be great for nepenthes and other plants that like their soil moist but would it be enough for bog plants that like more waterlogged soil? I can only see one problem and that would be if you had the jug filled with tap (since I do not think the rope will wick up nutrients and salts) and you accidentally spilled it. Opinions ideas?!
