Raise your hand if, no matter how hard you try, plants always seem to die on your watch. (FYI, I'm here raising my hand with you! 🙋). Now, all plants are different and some are more finicky than others, but in a lot of cases, the problem lies in the watering. Both under-watering and over-watering can cause plant problems, and it can be difficult to know exactly how much water your plants need.
The good news is, that's where accessories like self-watering planters and plant watering globes (also called bulbs) come in. And some of them, like these hand-blown glass bird globes from Mkono, are super stylish — perfect for adding a little flair to your house plants and keeping them healthy.
Mkono Glass Bird Plant Watering Globe, $7.99, Amazon
For $8, you can get one 10-inch-long glass bird bulb that's perfect for smaller plants, and all you have to do to use it is fill it up with water, poke a hole in the soil where you want it to stand, and stick it in. From there, the globe will release water into the soil on its own, and it should last at least one and a half to two weeks, depending on the type of plant you have and the soil you use (thirstier plants need to be refilled more often).
You'll still have to remember to fill the globe when it's empty, but you'll no longer have to guess how much water your plants need — essentially, you can set it and forget it for a few weeks and not have to worry about how your plants are doing.
