Exclusive | Water at the Roots to Keep Plants Healthier

  • Waters the root zone, not the weeds!
  • Leaves stay dry, reducing blight
  • Works in any soil type, releasing water over 1-1/2 to 4 hours
  • Two colors to choose from: green blends into your garden; red are more easily found
  • Each spike holds a standard 1- or 2-liter plastic soda bottle, not included

Turn your empty soda bottles into a super-easy, inexpensive irrigation system. Our patented AquaCone® watering devices fit 1-liter bottles for light watering or 2-liter bottles to deeply water thirsty plants. AquaCone devices save time over conventional watering, and because they target each plant's root zone, you won't waste water on neighboring weeds. Leaves stay dry, which helps reduce blight and other diseases.

    Comments about AquaCone® Watering Devices:

    When I first bought a set of these a few years ago, I thought they were the best thing in my garden since the invention of compost. Easy to assemble, water slowly dripped from the cone, allowing even dried, peat-based medium to rewet and not drip through. The cones had threads in the top where the bottle tops attached. The new ones don't have the threads and are very hard to assemble, and the bottle with the sand and water can break lose from the cone and make a mess. The old design was perfect, now its a pain. Please bring back the cones with the threads!!

      Comments about AquaCone® Watering Devices:

      The Aqua Cones are great! I found that I needed to drill the holes out to get proper saturation at the roots. Once I figured that out is has been easy to water the garden quickly and efficiently. I originally ordered two sets and I just now placed my second order for two more sets.

      The concept is ideal, but they do not work well.

        Comments about AquaCone® Watering Devices:

        As I said I really liked the concept, but they did not work. I could not get the bottles screwed in the cone as there were no threads inside the cone, and I couldn't get the bottle to stay in the cone. Maybe my planter pots were too small for this gadget. When I originally shopped for the cones, I saw them in an ad in a magazine, but they were terra cones in the ad, but when I tried to find them the site had no match for terra watering cones. Sorry, they just didn't work for me.

              Comments about AquaCone® Watering Devices:

              The aqua cones do a great job of watering single plants. Sometimes the holes plugged up, from the sand or dirt. Try to make the ground soft, before pushing in cone. It will minimized the holes getting clogged. The aqua cone definitely decreases water waste & minimizes weeds. It is a good investment.

                  I bought these to fill up with a solution of fertilizers to slow feed my pots. The water leaves the stack fairly quickly and does not slowly release. Disappointed my experiment didn't work.

                    In clay soil and sloping landscape, the Aquacones are amazing water savers while assuring plant roots receive the necessary water.

                      Saves water, goes directly to roots and also keeps weeds from growing in garden which happens when one does a general watering of the entire garden. I use rain water and this a real plus in the cones. I discovered that using sodas bottles is also a plus.
                      They last for years and years and don't have to be replaced like other plastics. So once you set up your cones they are good for years. The only draw back is that they the drain holes and top of sand need to be cleaned out each season. Otherwise the water does not drain out and stays in soda bottle.
