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.

My patio pots dry out quickly and need to be watered daily. With the Plant Nanny, I haven't had to water my pots for 3 days and there is still water in the bottle. It looks like I can go at least one more day. I need a few more nannys and am going to give a set to a friend for her pots. The only draw back, I haven't emptied enough wine bottles yet, so I need to get busy.

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.

        The plant nanny ensures that my plants do not get cooked in the sun. Its a passive way of caring for outdoor summer flowers which is a great thing for someone who is a city dweller with a less than green thumb.

          I use this product for my tomatoe plants. In the heat they require daily watering.

          The status of the deliery/arrival was amazing, and the packaging was incredible. Keep the bubble wrap away from children! LOL.

            I bought these a few years ago for myself. I just got another set for my parents. They were going away and asked me to come water outside potted plants at least every other day, maybe daily if it was hot. To save myself some trip over, I used these. They work great. With a 1 liter bottle, I could leave a hanging plant in direct sun (no mulch) for 2 1/2 - 3 days. With a 16 oz bottle, a pot on table, with mulch in it, for the same amount of time.

              I use this product to help keep up with the constant watering of container plants on our balcony. They're very easy to set up, the design is nice. They seem much better quality than similar items I saw elsewhere online. I'll probably put them away when we have guests over or have a nice dinner outside, since no one wants to look for too long at a bunch of plastic bottles sticking out of our planters.The only thing I'm concerned about is that with the water bottle version, once the bottle is less than half full, they may blow away in high winds since our patio is on a 3rd-floor balcony.

                    The stakes are easy to install. I love that I can take "water the patio pots" off of my daily to-do list. I also love the fact that the bottles are easily removed when you have company over ( as I prefer when entertaining). Love this product!
