They look great in any plant.
T. Garrett
When I checked the plant a week after inserting the globes, I found the soil to be dry, and the globes to still be full of water.

The end clogs when you push them into the soil and no water can get out to water the plant!

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.

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 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.

Verified Purchase
We used these to keep our potted cyclamen alive during a two week vacation, and they seemed to work perfectly. They were definitely empty after two weeks however, so multiples would be required for a longer absence. It is important to water the plants first before placing a full aqua globe in the pot, or the water will immediately drain out. It is also important to use a dowel or stick to make a hole in the soil approximating the long stem of the globe- BEFORE trying to insert the globe, otherwise the globe stem will get clogged up as you force it into the soil. These were two tips that I read on internet postings before I purchased them, and they were essential to success.

Just fill with water, insert the stem into the soil in your hanging basket and it keeps those outdoor baskets from withering away. In my 16" geranium/petunia hanging basket, it dispensed water for 3 days during 90+ degree temps. I'll bring them in for winter watering of house plants. They have a beautiful art quality.

I ordered these to water my plant in the office while I'm away during the weekends. I needed to use both of them to sufficiently water my large (3ft.) peace lily. I did drop one of them and it broke, so I'm finding that just using one is not enough to keep the whole plant happy. I'm looking for alternatives that are maybe not so breakable, since I'm a bit of a klutz! They are kind of hard to fill and when dirt gets stuck in the end it takes some work to get it out. If I knew I wouldn't break it, I would probably order them again because they work okay and look pretty in the plant.

This product held sufficient water to feed two plants in 8" pots for two weeks. Climate was controlled by lowering indoor temp. Might not serve as well in outdoor windy conditions. Product seems fragile, having long glass tube. I consider it a good value. It served my purpose.
