A Plastic Watering Can Makes Watering Plants Fun


The advantages of a green plastic watering can over metal are obvious. They don't weigh as much and it doesn't matter what kind of chemicals you put in them, the plastic will remain unaffected. Old metal cans get dented easily, there is no chance of that with a green plastic watering can. One big problem I also had with a metal can was removing the rose. Once the tiny holes become clogged with leaves, rust or other material, they are impossible to remove without some mole grips, and squeezing too hard to get the rose off can mean distorting the spout, so the rose never goes back on again!

A quick rinse out under the outside faucet and I can remove the rose easily for cleaning any time, without having to call my husband or search the garage for the grips. They are very easy to keep clean and never get rusty or dented.

Neat and Convenient

A plastic watering can usually can hold a gallon or so of water, which makes it easy to water quite a few houseplants before having to go back and refill. With a sturdy, easy to grip handle and a nice long spout, the specially designed can easily reaches into the pot, between the leaves, and right into the soil. Unlike a glass or maybe a cooking pot where water can easily miss its mark, the plastic watering can, with its narrow spout, will help you avoid making a mess.

Drop it and it Won't Break

Another advantage of using a plastic watering can is that it is practically indestructible. Made of a hard, sturdy plastic, the can will stand up to lots of abuse. This is particularly useful if you tend to be a bit clumsy and are prone to dropping the watering can or hitting it against the flower pots. It is also great for watering small outdoor potted plants.

Detachable Plastic Shower Head

Most plastic water cans have a round plastic head that screws on to the end of the spout. This makes it easy to pour a wide shower-like stream of water over the entire plant, getting both the leaves and the roots well saturated.
