They look great in any plant.

I filled them with water, made the hole in the dirt first with something else, and inserted the globes.

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.

I purchased a pair of aqua globes from target in their as seen on TV section. Those globes are very dainty and light weight. I loved them. They water my plants for a good week or two depending on the plant and despite a little dirt getting in the bottom, they work just fine. My plants are saved!

Because I loved them so much I ordered 2 sets from amazon. What arrived was a much larger, thicker, bulkier version of the aqua globes. When filled with water they almost tip my small house plants over (the others didn't).
At first I was going to send them back but now I figure I will use them for some outdoor ferns I have in pots or for a large indoor tree I'd like to get.

Just a warning, if you need to water a small or medium house plant, the ones that you get from Amazon might not work. The ones you can get at a store are the proper ones for that.

Although these globes are very pretty, the fact that they are glass makes them not a good buy IMO. I bought a couple of these a few years ago. The second one I started inserting it into a potted plant. I was putting a little bit of pressure on it to get it deep enough into the soil, as the soil was a bit packed, and all of a sudden the stem of it broke. Well, my hand moved downward and the broken piece that was in the soil sliced all the way across the palm of my hand and across a couple of my fingers!! I had to go to urgent care and it required about 10-14 stitches, and it was very painful and took some time to heal. I can still feel a bit of numbness in one of my fingers that got cut pretty deep.

So if you do buy these, WORDS OF CAUTION - BE VERY CAREFUL INSERTING THEM INTO THE SOIL AND NEVER NEVER PUT PRESSURE ON IT IF IT DOESN'T GO IN VERY EASILY!!!!

Personally, I'll find another way to auto-water my plants!

But other than the breaking, I also don't think they work well because the other one I had put in a different pot before this happened (and went in fine) did not release the water. After I came back from my trip, the globe was still almost full of water and the soil was dry. So seems like for these to work at all, and not break, the soil must be very loose.
