What is a watering bell?

A watering bell, or thumb watering can, is a unique and gentle way to water your houseplants. They work by using surface tension and pressure to hold water while your thumb is over the “spout” on the top of the bell. when you move your thumb to release the pressure, water flows out of the holes on the bottom, gently showering your plants. These fascinating devices are as beautiful as they are functional.
