I bought six of these to water my large potted plants while we are gone in the summer. Once receiving them, I immediately tried them. I filled them with water, made the hole in the dirt first with something else, and inserted the globes. Water started leaving the globes quickly and within 10-15 minutes, the globes were empty! I was hoping water would stay in the globes long enough to water the plants for at least one week, and they were empty. I soon realized that your plants have to be saturated with water FIRST, then as the dirt around the globes dries, water is released from the globe. Another thing, dirt does get trapped in the stem sometimes. Overall, just make sure that your plants are watered very well before you insert the globes, then they will slowly release the water the plant needs. I've had comments on how pretty they are in the plants also. I think they do the job without having to ask your neighbor to come water your plants while you're gone.

I have a set of 4 of these, I think they are the mini version. So far they are working very well. I am in Texas and use these outdoors in medium size pots of herbs. They last for about a week before needing a refill. I kind of cringed when I read reviews from people complaining about how hard they are to fill and then saying that they just trickle water from the sink spout into them. I just fill a pitcher with water then submerge the globe until it fills. Takes about 30 seconds. You do need to pre-drill a hole to avoid having soil clog them up, and you may have to move them around a bit before getting a perfect placement, but once they are placed properly they do exactly what they claim to do.

Aqua Globes are one of those myriad "as seen on TV" products that promise to change your life. Mrs. Spudman picked up a box along with the equally promising "Smooth Away" miracle that is also "seen on TV."

In the box were two Aqua Globes, each made of hand-blown glass, and even this skeptical Spudman must admit are somewhat attractive and stylish. The globes are about 11 inches long and far too fragile to put into the hands of your pet gorilla or chimpanzee.
The long thin tips are "cut" at an angle at the ends to help with ease of filling and inserting into potting soil.
When we bought our present home, we inherited a potted palm tree that's' close to five feet tall now. It showed signs of stress after being transplanted into a larger pot, so Mrs. Spudman chose it as a candidate for the Aqua Globes.

After several weeks, I noticed that the Aqua Globes were still full of water and brought it to the attention of the Globe master. She pulled out the devices, cleaned compacted dirt from the ends, and reinserted them at a different angle and depth. This seemed to do the trick because the globes needed refilling about a week hence. One site I browsed suggesting putting a piece of screen around the tip of the Aqua Globe to prevent dirt clogs.

Filling the globes is time consuming and tedious because one has to use a gentle, thin flow from the spigot. Mrs. Spudman started using a small funnel for filling and seems to be happier with this procedure.

Before inserting the globes into the soil, one is advised to predrill a hole using a stick, dowel, chopstick, or screwdriver. An electric drill makes a big mess with flying dirt and is not recommended for making the preparatory hole.

We were going away for a few weeks and wanted to keep our miniature lemon tree alive (a prior trip almost killed it). So I bought two sets of globes. With two in each package, I thought that four should suffice. They did, but only by chance. Apparently the globes are made by individual glass blowers and they don't all adhere to the same specs (if there are any). Most of them had "snouts" that were large enough to allow air to slowly bubble in (when the dirt around the nozzle had dried sufficiently) and the water to seep out. But there was one whose "snout" had an aperture on the order of an eighth of an inch. I can hold that globe in the open air [bulb on top, snout down] all day and not a drop will get out. [unless the air in the globe heats up, expands, and pushes some out]

So if you order some of these, allow enough time to return the ones which won't empty if held up.

There were complaints from other reviewers that there was no device included to help poke a hole in the dirt - and if you used the globe itself you would clog the end. True. But I found that if I took a plastic bag, doubled it over and wrapped it over the snout I could poke a hole in the dirt, take it out of the hole, remove the plastic, and then re-insert the snout.

It is also good to fully water the plant before inserting the snout. Otherwise, as was pointed out by another reviewer, the water will quickly empty.

I would have given it a higher rating if the one globe had not been unusable. BTW: a week back from the trip and I can still lift that one globe up and no water comes out.

The aqua globes are an attractive addition to my plants but they require very exact repeated attempts at placement. The stems of the globes tend to fill up with soil from the pot and create a barrier so that no water trickles out to keep the plant at the right level of moisture.
