A TIKTOKER shared the affordable article that transformed her way of caring for plants.
She said it takes the hard work out of watering and is especially helpful for lazy plant parents.
She then revealed Amazon’s “cute little glass mushrooms” that were responsible for bringing her plants back to life.
Koven didn’t specify which product she bought, but Amazon sells several options.
The creator also explained how to use the watering balls.
“You just fill them with water, stick them in, and then your plants drink at their own pace,” she said.
Koven demonstrated how it worked on different installations with different requirements.
Pointing to a plant, she said, “I gave this guy one and he drank it all up straight away and then he got pretty horny.”
Another plant seemed to lack water. However, Koven came to the rescue with another mushroom ball.
“This guy looks a little rough, but I gave him one. I only saw a few bubbles so I think he’s drinking right now,” she said.
Her succulent appeared to be in good condition as the scoop in the soil was full.
“He’s not particularly thirsty,” she added.
Glass watering balls release water according to the dryness of the soil. If it’s wet, it stays in the globe.
However, when the soil dries, it gives off just enough water to keep the plant’s leaves upright and growing.
Amazon has them in a variety of forms, including the mushroom silhouette shared by Koven.
People in the comments were impressed with how stylish and functional the plant accessories are.
One commenter simply replied, “Cute.”
Another had already bought their own: “They’re in my cart! I saw them the other day and almost fell out.”
An informative viewer offered a valid warning about watering globes.
“You have to be careful what plants you put them in,” they wrote.
“Sometimes your plants eat too much without realizing they don’t need it.”
Koven was grateful for the tip and reported that she had no problems so far.
“That’s good to know! So far only the plants that I knew to be very thirsty have drunk a lot. The rest takes its time.”
