Water Great Idea!

Wondering who will water your plants while you're on vacation? Have trouble remembering to tend them when you're home? Just let these ingenious garden stakes take care of them for you!

Each ceramic stake is specially designed to release just the right amount of water into the soil via recycled wine or plastic bottles, making your gardening endeavors a little bit greener. Create a reservoir with the inverted bottle of your choice, attach it using the drip-free adapter, and the terracotta stakes will quench your plants' thirst on your behalf. As your plants absorb moisture from the soil, the stakes will automatically release water directly into the soil, rather than on the surface, ensuring that root systems receive an adequate drink. Made in China.

Sets sold separately.

          I am using the wine bottle plant nannies for indoor and outdoor plants and they will work perfectly when we are away on vacation for a week. I like them so much I have ordered a second set. The only drawback is the nanny is too big for my smaller potted plants.

          Wine bottle works better

          About Me Getting Started

          Pros

          • Not Fragile
          • Use In Outside Pots
          • Weather Resistant
          • Wine Bottle Looks Better

          Cons

          • Lasts Maybe 2 Days
          • Plastic Bottle Falls Out
          • Plastic Bottle Looks Dumb

          Best Uses

            Comments about RECYCLE A BOTTLE PLANT NANNY STAKE- SET OF 4:

            The wine bottle nanny works much better. Would not use on inside pots. The plastic bottle version is hard to fit, looks not as good and falls out with a stiff wind. Neither lasts a long time, but overall very happy with the product. Anyone who does potted plants knows they require constant watering. I did not find the ceramic to be fragile, and lasted through the winter in the pots without cracking.

            i saw on another forum the tip to soak the terracotta pieces in water for an hour before use to stop them from leaking . i did that and it worked like a charm. the arrangement with a 2 liter bottle is a bit unstable and requires good balancing and a pot with some space in it for best results

              Plant nanny's are perfect for pot/patio gardens.

              With plant nanny's I can go away for a week in the hot dry summer time and know that my plants will get all the water they need.

              Plant nanny's are easy to use and they really do work. I just ordered four more for my potted plants.

                Great for a wall mounted planter that otherwise sends sheets of topsoil over the edge when you water it.

                      These are great for our roof top garden. We live in a city so we plant everything in pots, and these work well with 1 bottle / pot (for example, one in the tomato plant pot, one in the pepper pot etc). We have used them with regular and oversized wine bottles and they are stable with each. They do work best when there is plenty of soil to stick them in, so they may not be useful for shallow planters.
