Most watering globes on the market these days are good in theory, but if you’re like most houseplant enthusiasts, you’ve probably determined the pretty little gadgets are more trouble than they’re worth. Traditional watering globes tend to be fickle. They drain unevenly and water comes out in a flood or a trickle, or the tube clogs with potting soil and thirsty plants receive nary a drop. Worst case scenario? Globes are difficult to fill and all too often they shatter in the process.
The Plantpal Watering System, however, has thrown that outdated technology out the window and in its place has created the perfect watering system that has truly changed the way we water plants. Don’t be fooled by the appearance of Plantpal’s watering globes. The pretty blue and green globes are actually sophisticated watering systems that implement natural technology to determine when plants are thirsty. And because they are made of hard plastic, there is no danger of shattering.
The globes are easy to fill, and thanks to a specialized valve and innovative, cone-shaped watering spikes, clogging is a thing of the past. Plants are luxuriously healthy and happy, even when you’re too busy. Plantpal globes deliver the right amount of water for up to two weeks. Getting started with Plantpal watering globes couldn’t be easier. Here are a few tips:
- Dampen the soil before using Plantpal watering globes for the first time.
- Dip the capillary wick at the bottom of the cone in water until the wick is thoroughly moist.
- Fill the globe with water (adding liquid plant food, if desired) and screw the cone to the globe.
- Use a pencil, pen or table knife to poke into the soil, then insert the cone in the hole. Make sure the wick makes contact with the soil.
- Refill the globes as needed, and remember, there is no need to remove soil from the spike.
- Wash the globes every so often with warm water and gentle dish detergent to keep them looking their best.
There’s little doubt that for hassle-free plant care, Plantpal’s innovative globes have surpassed any other watering globes on the market today.
