This is probably the lowest rating I have given a product lately. These are very pretty as a decoration, but horrible at keeping plants watered. The problem lies in the design. It takes forever to fill each globe up with water, since the stems are super thin the water just trickles in. Then when you go to insert these into the dirt or soil all that happens is the dirt gets stuck in the end of the tube, so there is no way for the water to get out. This really doesn't work at all, my plants didn't get any water. I kept these to use as a decoration in the pots and my window boxes, but never put in more water, there was no point. I do not recommend these if you want your plants to live.
