This cleverly designed water balanced vase helps home owners recognize when their flowers need to be watered. The Water Balance Vase from Design Soil was created to help keep people without green thumbs from killing their plants and flowers through neglect.

Gardeners and florists know that weight is an important factor in determining whether or not a plant needs to be watered. If a plant is very heavy, odds are you can leave it alone. But light, dry plants are thirsty and require some TLC. This intriguing vase is attached to a wooden plank thank hooks onto the wall. On one end there is a vase and on the other there's a light dangling weight. When the plank is level, the plant or flower is perfectly watered. When the plank is slanted, it can indicate over or under watering.

This is a neat idea for people who love plants but often forget to water them. The Water Balance Vase cleverly reminds people to care for their plants.
