    Yes, they do. I have used them for my plants while I was on vacation. The plants always do well when I'm gone!

    They sure do. Sometimes you can find them at Dollor tree or 99 cent store.

    I have never used the globes, but I have 7 self watering pots in use right now and just love them. They work basically on the same theory, just one is on top and one is on the bottom. I have three hibiscus, two strawberries, parsley, and basil in them right now and all are doing fantastic even as hot as it has been.

    you can buy the screw ends on line and use lieter bottles. Sometimes the stems of the globes are so fine that they clog w dirt and it doesn't wick well. Makeure you can see down the stem.

    yes. But I use pretty wine bottles. You fill them with water. Drill a hole in the cork and place in the pot. It is great for tomato plants. Use small mini wine bottles for houseplants.

    I have not found them usable, they clog with packed dirt and don't drain out the water!

    No, I haven't had any luck with them - they do add color to your plants.

    Not really, they plug up and end up being a pain. Would be good on a special plant if you were going on vacation.
