Do Water Dots Work?Plant watering can become a big chore especially during the summer months, and it can be a real problem for those with a busy lifestyle. Water Dots may be of a big help in these cases.

Overview
Water Dots have appeared on the Shopping Channel as a great way to cut down on having to water your plants. These can be used both for indoor as well as outdoor plants. There are however many different types of products that can do a similar task, so really what makes the water dots so different? They were actually designed for roof top gardens because of the many challenges that watering flowers in these types of locations faced.

The Claim
The company claims that the Water Dots can be used for the watering of trees, shrubs, hanging plants and window boxes just to give an example. The company is indicating that about 1/3rd to 1/2 of a 2 litre bag is good for a 10 to 12 inch pot. Variations will occur depending on the type of plant, the soil and the weather conditions. The company claims that the plants taking advantage of the Water Dots should be healthier. This is because you need to pre-soak the dots and when doing this you can add plant fertilizer to the water used for soaking. This in turn makes sure the plants are going to get full use of the nutrition.

The Hype
The fact that Water Dots is being promoted as being able to hold ten times its weight in water explains why the product is so effective at cutting down the watering need. A lot of people spend a ton of money on their plants only to find out that they haven’t survived because of lack of watering which basically occurred because of lack of time on the owner’s part.


The Cost
On the Learning Channel the Water Dots are being offered for $59.99 for a two litre box. On the Water Dot website a two litre bag is being sold for $9.75.

The Commitment
It is going to take a little work on your part to prepare the Water Dots for use, then integrate them properly into the soil of the plants or foliage they are being used for.

Evaluation
Products such as this that can cut down on your watering task are a good idea. Some people love to have a lot of plants around their summer homes, but they are not there through the week to water them. A product like Water Dots would be ideal in this situation.

Final Water Dots Review

We are going to give the Water Dots a Thumbs Up rating, with the understanding that there are other alternatives that are similar to this on the market. One of these that we have talked about is Mizu Pods, however there is a little more work to these in that you have to keep soaking the balls when they become dry. The other question about this is if the water actually is used by the plants or does it just evaporate?

Our Recommendation
If you are going to be around home all the time, and it is just a matter of knowing when you should water your plants then something like the Aqua Globes would work just as well. When you notice them empty it is just a matter of filling them. They will then water the plants as the dryness of the soil dictates.

What do you think? Does Water Dots work or not?
