They are hand-blown glass, shaped like giant teardrops. The makers claim the Aqua Globes waters plants perfectly for up to two weeks. It claims to water the plants for you, but for $10, Does It Work?
The directions say to poke a hole in the dirt, that way you do not break the glass as you're sticking it in the pot. Fill the globe with water, in our case, the two globes that came in NewsChannel 11's $10 package.
Once they were in the dirt, bubbles started making their way to the top. The bubbles indicate that water is leaving the globe and going into the soil. As the dirt becomes dry, it releases oxygen into the globe, which releases the exact amount of water your plant needs. That is what it says on the box anyway.
But remember, this product claims to keep your plants watered perfectly for up to two weeks and since I just watered the plants this morning why are they already empty? It has only been a week!
The day after putting the globes in the hanging plant, one of the globes was already empty. By Saturday, I had to fill them up. By Monday, they were both empty again. Maybe it has something to do with the pot. It is mesh and has been hanging outside. Maybe it will work better on an indoor plant, which was within reach at KCBD. The plant was watered a week ago. We used a pencil to dig our hole and stuck a full globe into the dirt and put the plant back on the shelf.
So, I'll reserve my two cents until next week.
