Do Aqua Globes Really Work?

Aqua Globe

To any who might’ve missed my blogging presence, I apologize!  I started a new position with the publishers of The Herb Companion working with the marketing department on graphic design and copy writing, and the learning curve in the transition has been … well, rather steep. 

Then, the holiday vacation and a trip to Miami really put me out of the loop – but I’m back and ready for a new gardening season!

Today, I’ve got a quick review for you:  I’m sure you’ve seen these all over TV and in end-caps across stores everywhere – Aqua Globes

Once filled with water, the Aqua Globe will water your plant as it needs it, based on a very simple, scientific phenomenon.  As soil dries, it releases oxygen into the globe which pushes water into the stem of the plant.  Yes, that much is true.

The beauty of these “set it, forget it” products should be just that – as little human/plant interaction as possible.  The problem is that the Aqua Globe needs to be filled, at a minimum, every two weeks.  More often in the dry winter months.
