So I was searching for self-watering pots and came across a really cute one online. I bought it for my mom for Xmas and it came in time for the holidays. When she opened it, everyone was enamored by it! It’s super cute – a little ceramic green frog, a mini plastic pot, and a small, pink felt tongue shaped that comes out of the frogs mouth and dips into a little saucer that you fill with water. Take a look:
This pic above is what comes in the packet: a small pot, ceramic frog, pink felt tongue, instructions (in Chinese!), basil seeds, and a small circle of dirt.
Isn’t the tongue so cute!!
So, I soaked the dirt for a while and it expanded a bit. Then, put the seeds inside and plopped it into the frog’s pot. The tongue is also partly inside the pot, out the mouth and “lapping” up water from the saucer.
Isn’t that adorable!?! Haha, I think so. Well, it’s in my mom’s care now and I’ll get back to you when it starts to sprout!
