osmokote caps hint

Ive been making osmokote root capsules for about a year now and always had a little trouble pushing them down in the the gravel, they would try to float back up. Today, I drilled a little hole in both ends and the air would bubble out and they would stay put very easily. sometimes just gently squeezing them would allow the air out so they would sink, and stay put. Plus I love power tools.

Hmmmm. I like this idea. They are bouyant little buggers.

Now we need to figure a way to include a band saw and heat gun in the project.

This is a nice, albeit complicated, idea.

When I use Osmocote Plus caps, I tend to put a piece of clay in the cap to help weight it down. Seems to work pretty well.
