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.

I use this product in my planters. No need to worry about plants drying out if you leave town for about 5 days. In potted plants requiring more water, I use more than one globe - three for my hydrangea. The globes are wonderful for more delicate plants such as hanging baskets of begonias. Once the spike is in an accessible spot, the flowers are not disturbed and remain lush.

I have added to my stock of watering globes over several years as I expand my container garden on my porch. I have broken two - they are glass and terra cotta, but I prefer the design and looks over other methods such as plastic bottles or a watering can, as I don't have a hose attachment for one porch.

They clean easily and are easy to store. I stick mine in a pot of sand in my garage during the winter, give them a mild wash in the early spring, and then sit back and enjoy my porch garden.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Watering Globe and Plant Nanny Stake:

        Usually when I go out of town for any length of time my downstairs neighbor waters my plants. But this was the week after Christmas, and John was going to be on the West Coast visiting family. So I was left to my own resources--and to googling "plant watering systems". All I knew was that I didn't want anything with a motor, so Uncommon Ground's Plant Nannies seemed ideal: organic and unobtrusive (even kind of pretty!). I'm by no means a rocket scientist, and though I read how the system works several times, I finally decided I was just going to have to trust it. Besides, I was about to spend a week at a monastery, so I devoted a share of my prayer and meditation to the well-being of my bedroom garden. God and the Plant Nannies both came through: the guys were in great shape when I got home. I still have no idea how the things work, but they do. My plants are happy and healthy--and I've even engaged my trust issues. Thanks, Uncommon Ground!

                This was a gift so I am unable to comment on how it performs but it appeared to be of excellent quality and the globe itself was beautiful. The recipient seemed very pleased although she has not had the opportunity to use it yet.

                  Love the design & color of the globes.
                  Would need 3-4 globes for a large indoor plant if leaving plant for a couple of weeks.
                  One globe seems to empty quickly within 1-2 days.
                  The plants seem to thrive better with the extra water source.
                  A unique gift for someone who has everything!

                      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!
