Green and Bear It

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 stake take care of it for you!

The terracotta stake is specially designed to release just the right amount of water into the soil via an elegant, fluted glass reservoir globe. Create a reservoir with the inverted globe, attach it using the drip-free adapter, and the stakes will quench your plants' thirst on your behalf. As your plants absorb moisture from the soil, the stake will automatically release water directly into the soil, rather than on the surface, ensuring that root systems receive an adequate drink. Handmade in China.

      Comments about WATERING GLOBE AND PLANT NANNY STAKE:

      I enjoy beautiful, colorful flowering plants but just cannot judge how much/little to water them. This item offered an aid to keep my deck planter viable. I've concluded that I should have gotten the larger size globe since the outdoor planter is more than two feet in diameter and soaks up the lesser water volume roughly every other day. But don't misunderstand - even replenishing at that rate still affords some confidence that the plants will survive!

            I love this product because it is beautiful and useful. So far four are employed in my home; two grace plants on my patio and two are in house plants. For example, living in Arizona, I've always had trouble maintaining ivy. So the first globe was purchased for my English ivy. Together the globe and I have successfully kept the ivy in thriving condition.

                    The plant nanny works better and is easier to manage than another device I previously bought for this purpose. The terracotta stake goes into the pot and stays in the same spot. The globe needs occasional water refills. That's it. Will help me a lot since I tend to be very forgetful about watering the one natural plant I have in my home. Haven't had it long enough to know whether it's easy to clean but I imagine a few grains of rice, some hot water and a good shaking will take care of things.

                      House plants - read reviews of similar products and several mentioned 'easy to break' - this product has a clay spike that goes into the plant, and then the glass globe (sturdy itself) is set into the spike. Great design!

                          These are so much prettier than the old style watering globes and much easier to use. Going to find bigger ones for use in my giant outdoor pots.
