  2. Get a Grip: Hold the pot with your thumb and fingers. It's like holding a mini cup!
  3. Spout to Base: Put the spout of the pot near the plant's base – that's where the water needs to go.
  4. Tilt and Pour: Give the pot a little tilt to let the water flow from the tiny holes. Easy, right?
  5. Move It Around: Move the pot around the base of the plant to make sure all areas get some water love.
  6. Know When to Stop: Stop watering when you see water coming out of the bottom holes or when you think your plant has had enough.
