Thoughtful design! Will print and report back with results. Thanks!

Thanks. I'm a little concerned if the screws of the bottle will match local bottles. It'll be nice if you could report the outcome.

Great clever design! Will print and test it soon!
What coffee filter did you used? 102? #4?

Thanks for the reply! I just checked but it seems mine wasn't sized with such numbers (・へ・). I searched about what that numbering means, & I guess it isn't so large, so is 102 size. Besides, the size essentially doesn't matter as long as you could place it on the cone.

Great looking design. My only problem with self watering pots that function this way is that plants use rainwater to flush away waste. So when you water from underneath, you're reintroducing salts and other plant waste back to the plant. This is not good for plants.

Hey there, I didn't notice your reply until today. Thanks for the advice. Yes, I notice the water below is indeed kind of stagnated after while. I just added another version which you can dispose the water & pour new water from the top. Do you think it'll solve the problem? With this design you should be able to refresh the water when you want.
