You’ll need a plastic flowerpot, a flat pan feeder, a chick brooder lamp, and some screws. Now all you need to do is fill the bottle up with some hummingbird food, secure the bottom back on the container, and flip it over so the water from the bottle fills the container. 1 part sugar/4 parts water.
I actually had glass hummingbird feeder, but the red stuff covering the glass part was flaking off.
Principally, a platform feeder is a large tray for accepting the feed with a suitably portioned roof mounted over the tray to offer the specified degree of safety from the climate. Cool and pour into bottle. Do not add food coloring, honey (which ferments), or artificial sweetener, which has no nutritional value. Store any leftovers in refrigerator for 2 weeks.
