“Hear me out. If you are terrible at watering your plants, this is for you,” said Kristin Koven (@kristaank) at the start of the video.
She then revealed the “cute little glass mushrooms” from Amazon that were responsible for bringing her plants back to life.
Koven didn’t specify which exact product she bought, but Amazon sells several options.
Some standout brands include Perswer, $13.99, Iikum, $15.99, and NiHome, $17.99.

The creator also explained how to use the watering globes.
“You just fill them with water, stick them in there, and then your plants will drink at their own pace,” she said.
Koven demonstrated how it worked on several different plants with varying needs.
Pointing to one plant she said: “I gave this guy one and he drank the entire thing immediately and then perked up so pretty.”
Another plant appeared to be lacking water. However, Koven came to the rescue with another mushroom globe.
“This guy’s looking a little rough but I gave him one. I just saw some bubbles, so I think he’s drinking right now,” she said.
Her succulent plant appeared to be in good shape, as the globe placed inside its soil was full.
“He’s not super thirsty,” she added.
Glass watering globes dispense water according to the dryness of the soil. If it’s moist, it will remain inside the globe.

But as the soil dries, it will release just enough water to keep the plant’s leaves upright and growing.
They come in a variety of shapes on Amazon, including the mushroom silhouette shared by Koven.
People in the comments were impressed by how stylish and functional the plant accessory is.
One commenter simply replied: “Cute.”
Another had already purchased their own: “They’re in my cart! I saw them the other day and about fell out.”
One informative viewer shared a fair warning about watering globes.
“You have to be careful with what plants you’re putting those in,” they wrote.
“Sometimes your plants will overindulge without realizing that they don’t need it.”
Koven was grateful for the heads up and reported that she hasn’t run into any issues so far.
“That’s good to know! So far only the plants that I knew were very thirsty have drank a lot. The rest are taking their time.”
