For outdoor garden, I place it close to the plant and it last about 3 days. As the soil drys it allows for air to be released and allowing the water to fill up the spot where the air has been created. No need to worry about overwatering with this method, as gravity works its magic. No need to spend money on glass balls for watering. If you want to decorate them, modpoge them with tissue paper.

I do the same thing with glass bottles, if you turn them upside down quick as you push them in the dirt only a little water is let out. I recently posted about it with photos on my blog, it may help!

How do you place them in the soil. Are they upside down and if so, how do you put them there without the water coming out. Or are they right side up with a hold in the bottom?
