Place the AquaCone over the top of the bottle, then tip the bottle and cone upside down and place in the soil near a plant. Water will seep slowly into the soil through the porous terra cotta and the small holes in the base.

  • Opening for bottle is 1-3/4" in diameter
  • Fits standard wine bottles; bottles not included

      Perfect for Hydrangeas

      • Hydrangeas

      I order these every year. This is necessary because they are fragile. They break but they're so handy and resonably priced that this is ok with me.

      very cute style but VERY fragile

      from Brazoria, TX

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Cute
      • Large

      Cons

      • Drains Too Quickly
      • thin
      • very fragile
      • Weak material

      Best Uses

        I used these in two large patio pots to help keep the soil moist in the hot summer. I don't remember any instructions saying put sand in the tip to reduce the flow, but I did use a cotton ball to inhibit the quick flow of water. The terra cotta material was poured so thin that they cracked upon placing them in the soil just from the pressure of my hand around the bulb. My soil was very soft and it inserted easily but they are just TOO thin and fragile. I have worked with liquid ceramic pouring and these could easily be poured thicker! I loved the unique shape, much more so than other plant nanny's I have purchased since these are broken.

          I keep these in my pots from spring thru fall. They do need to be removed during the cold winter to avoid breakage. They provide a great way to give your plants the right amount of water.

          The cones are large and are sized to fit a wine bottle. These aren't for small to middle sized plants, but very large heavy floor plants.

                  This product has a design flaw.

                  Cons

                  • Rather expensive

                  Best Uses

                    The holes at the bottom of the cone have to be covered to keep the water from flowing right out of the cone. Once the holes are covered, the cone works properly. This is a design flaw.

                    Very Disappointing Product

                        Best Uses

                          I saved this product to use when I expected to be out of town on vacation. The water drained completely from the bottle within 5 minutes. Once of the cones broke immediately upon putting in into my plant. This is a very disappointing product and I regret purchasing it.

                                Best Uses

                                  I thought this would work to more slowly release water to a plant, but it was only medium slow. That wouldn't have bothered me but when I tried to use a glass bottle and pushed a bit to anchor it in the soil, the aqua cone broke.
