home made dripper?


Avid Member
any idea for a home made dripper???
Depends on the cage. For smaller cages I use the plastic bowls that are 4/$1 at Walgreens. Some people use either gallon or 1/2 gallon plastic jugs, for larger cages. You just poke on hole in the bowl and a few in the jug, from the inside with a safety pin.
I hope this helps ;)

Large styrofoam cup with hole poked in it. Large plastic cup with hole poked in it. Large plastic container with hole poked in it. Water jug with hole poked in it. You can also use all above methods, but instead of just poking a hole, you can put a small-diameter plastic tube in the bottom and seal around it with silicone. Tubing allows you to control the drips so it doesn't drip constantly into the soil of your plants.

Home/hospital made dripper

My uncle was in his hospital bed,
Sitting watching him sleep I started to think about my dripper and BAM!
I watched his IV drip every second.
I picked up a bunch of the IV feeders,
They are not as precise as a regular IV and they are made to feed a person that
is unable to consume food through the mouth. So ther is a nice cap on it to fill.
I just recently picked up an entire box.
I will put some packages together for re-sale as soon as I can take some pics.
