      I have planters on the front balcony that I kept forgetting to water. Now with these, it no longer happens.

        Comments about Plant Watering Spikes:

        This item is supposed to slowly release water to the plants which is an especially good idea when you are traveling. Unfortunately in a test of the product and following all instructions, the water quickly poured out. I don't believe I can use these, tho I thought this was a great idea.

          Use this when you can't be there to be sure your plants are watered. In this drought, they have water when they need it. The supply is not infinite, a backup plan is needed if you can't return before the water runs out. so Far, it is doing what I expected. It's limited only by what it can do. Try it.

          Comments about Plant Watering Spikes:

          These spikes do not work. I watered my plants, then added the spikes on 20 oz bottles. They bubbled away while the water dripped out the bottom of the hanging plant. It took about 5 minutes.
          I then rewatered and plugged one of the holes with superglue. It emptied in the same amount of time.

                these are a great idea, they only have one set of holes and it needed more holes to get to the roots better. Once this was done it worked like the others I had bought from somenone else. Here is a great price and you get many at a time. I will always use these and it does a great job. I would recommend these to anyone that have asked what I am using and I show them and they say it is a cool idea...

                    I bought these to use while on vacation. I watered my plants like the directions say and after I stuck in my filled bottles the water just drained right back out of them. Thought it would be easier to fill and safer to use outside than the glass water globes but they are not.

                      Comments about Plant Watering Spikes:

                      I am a lifetime ardent gardener, currently living in a second-floor apartment. Watering with a hose or a drip system is not feasible in this location. My spacious balcony (wooden planking) is a "garden" of container plants and hanging baskets. but since it overhangs a downstairs neighbor's patio, I have to be very careful with my watering - no accidental flooding, no dripping. Temperatures in Central Florida routinely reach over 100 degrees during the summer months, so regular watering is essential. The watering spikes are an ideal answer to both challenges - the baskets do not drip and the container plants take just as much water as needed without flooding the drip trays.

                            This product does not work at all. I first tried after a normal watering. The water in the coke bottle was gone in 10 minutes. I 'saturated' the dirt in an empty pot and then attempted to use the spikes. I got the same result. Water in coke bottle completely gone in 10 minutes. Do not waste your money on this product. Find a sitter to come water your plants.
