Recycle a Bottle Plant Nanny Stake- Set of 4

Let these terracotta watering stakes will take care of your plants while you're away.

$14.95 - 16.95

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.

        I needed something when I go away for up to one month. These work, but when I use water bottles, they work @ 2 weeks which is okay, because my plants can go for 2 weeks without watering, which would be a month total. So, good enough for me. Not sure what to do with my cactus, it would be overwatered with this product.

          I needed a small "olla" for a few pots that couldn't handle a buried terracotta pot. These would fit the bill BUT the smaller, more environmentally friendly water bottles don't seem to have enough tread to really get gripped by the insert - I ended up taking the insert out and just shoving the bottle in until it wedged. Should have gotten the wine bottle version.

                This is my second set of plant nannies. They're easy to use. Keeps my plants alive when we go away for a long weekend. They're also great conversation pieces. All my friends think my plants are winos!

                  I use the plant nanny to keep plants watered during the extreme heat. It keeps the soil damp so the plants are not stressed.
