I don’t generally have too much faith in infomercials. Sure, the products often look revolutionary, but so often the claims seem unbelievable or the inventions seem unnecessary.
In fact, I had previously laughed heartily at the infomercials advertising the Glass Watering Globes. The poor women watering their plants “the old-fashioned way” were so furious about their task, I wondered why the women had even bought the plants in the first place.
But when Christmas rolled around and my husband and I began preparing for a three-week trip to see family, a problem arose. How were we going to keep our plants alive for the three weeks that we would be gone?
“Let’s get some Glass Watering Globes!” my husband suggested enthusiastically. For lack of a better solution, I pushed my scepticism aside and we made the purchase.
While I found the thin stem of the globes a bit difficult to fill with water, my husband seemed to have no problem with them and soon had them all filled and inserted. When we returned from our vacation, some of the globes were empty and all of the plants were thriving.
The watering globes definitely make life a little easier around our house. While I love my plants, I am not very consistent with my watering habits. As well, I have no idea how much water to give each of my plants. Thanks to the globes, I have eliminated the guesswork when caring for my greenery. As an added bonus, my husband finds the globes so novel that he has voluntarily taken on the task of refilling the globes when they are empty. All I do now is sit back and enjoy the beauty of my healthy and thriving plants.
Although the globes work better in larger, heavier pots, we have been able to make them work in even our smaller houseplants. And I have a little extra peace of mind knowing that my plants have exactly the right amount of water without any effort on my part. Any item that leaves me with one less chore to do is a winner in my book!
