plant-nanny-4-pack-webWondering who will water your plants while you’re on vacation? Have trouble remembering to tend them when you’re home? The Plant Nanny is a handy solution to these the problems.  These ingenious garden stakes take care of them for you!

plant-nanny-single-webEach ceramic stake is specially designed to release just the right amount of water into the soil via recycled wine or plastic bottles, making your gardening endeavors a little bit greener. Create a reservoir with the inverted bottle of your choice, attach it using the drip-free adapter, and the terracotta stakes will quench your plants’ thirst on your behalf. As your plants absorb moisture from the soil, the stakes will automatically release water directly into the soil, rather than on the surface, ensuring that root systems receive an adequate drink.
