I have seen these things around, but never imagined what in the world would I do with something like that? Boy, was I surprised!
Not only do Eco-Orbies come in all sorts of cool colors – there are tons of different uses for them from growing plants to sensory therapy!
These nifty Eco-Orbies come in little pellet sized balls that you soak in 2 cups of water at which point they grow. They are still a small, but average size.
So, hubby and I decided to replant my Bamboo. I am a Bamboo addict. This particular Bamboo, I have had for… wow… at least 4 years? It was living in a cute little jade elephant so we had to improvise a bit to make the bowl work since it was so much larger, but with the glass beads that I had with the bowl and the Eco-Orbies, it worked awesome!
The great thing is that the Eco-Orbies will help keep the moisture in with the little bit of water we used to cover the roots.
I plan on purchasing more (FREE shipping for the month of May 2012) and finding more unique ways to use them. I want to get some to put next to my bed and soak them with lavendar infused water to help me sleep. Did you know you can add essential oils to them? How cool is that!?
