This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in April of 2020. Keeping your inside and outside plants healthy means ensuring that they get the proper amount of moisture, which can be challenging if you are traveling or if you are just forgetful. These globes help take the hassle out of daily watering by holding and releasing water over a number of days, so you only have to fill them once or twice a week to keep your plants alive and thriving. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 22, 2020:

Keeping your plants alive can be difficult if you lack a green thumb or if you do a lot of traveling. Watering stakes and globes help relieve the stress of dragging out your watering can every day and making the rounds indoors and outdoors.

When selecting the best globe for your needs, you will find that there are 3 primary materials available: glass, ceramic and plastic. Plastic options, like the Alotm Water Device, are quite durable, so you do not have to worry as much about dropping it and shattering it, although it can be cracked, so you still want to handle with care. However, this selection comes in a set of 10, so if you crack one, you still have plenty of others to take its place. Plastic is normally cheaper than similar glass or ceramic models, so if money is an issue, it may be the best choice.

If you have a bit of a bigger budget for your plants, then the Blazin Bison is a lovely glass option that provides water for as long as 2 weeks, depending on the needs of your plant. It is hand-blown, which means each one is different from the other, so you have a truly unique piece in your garden. The Topadorn Mini Set is another glass model that features a faceted design, and it comes with a vintage mister to complete the set.

If ceramic is more your style, the Evergreen Garden is a delightful selection in the shape of a cute fish to add a "splash" of fun to your home. The Mima2672 Terracotta is another ceramic option, and both sit atop a terracotta stake, which is an exceptional, porous material for watering plants at a slow rate.
