  • Provides the slow, deep watering plants love
  • Use with your own recycled wine bottles

Terra Cotta AquaCone® Watering Devices are an ingenious and attractive way to provide moisture directly to plant roots. Simply fill a wine bottle (or similar bottle) with water. 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.

  • Approx. 3" in diameter x 7-1/4" H
  • Opening for bottle is 1-3/4" in diameter
  • Fits standard wine bottles; bottles not included

No More Worries

I love these. I had purchased some years ago and am still using those (they worked with water bottles)plus these new ones. I don't ever worry about forgetting to or overwatering my plants.

Not What I Was Hoping For

By Susan65

from Buffalo, New York

Verified Buyer

Pros

    Cons

    • Flimsy

    Best Uses

      I was hoping for a time-release watering system that would give my potted plants a few days of slow nourishment, but the holes in the bottom allowed water to be released within minutes. Further, extreme care should be made when adjusting them. I broke two almost immediately after receiving and "planting" them in my pots.

      The water pours right through them, doesn't last for slow watering

      I would not buy this item again.

      By Dee

      from Andalusia, AL

      Verified Reviewer

      The holes are too large, water does not seep out.
      Soil was wet and bottle of water was
      emptied in a few minutes. I bought several and
      wasted my money!

      Not sure I would buy these again

      By Chris

      from Chicago, IL

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

        Cons

        • Broke easily
        • Holes At Bottom Pointless
        • Water Drained Out Quickly

        Best Uses

          I had high hopes for these, they are quite large, I broke 1 immediate, and chipped another, and the holes at the bottom make all the water in your bottle drain out immediately instead of slowly seeping out through the clay surface. I have other water nurses with no holes that work better.

            Tera Cota Aquacone watering device

            By J

            from Sun City West, AZ

            Verified Buyer

            One of the cones shattered when I tried to press it into the dirt. It doesn't work unless the dirt is VERY loose and there are not many roots on the plant. Also, it should only be used indoors. The water disappears way too fast outside

            Aquacone Watering Device Does Not Work!

            By Pam

            from Martinez CA

            Verified Reviewer

            Water runs right through until the wine bottle is empty. Tried 3 times in different pots. This is NOT a gradual watering system.
