Watering Bells were popular with the wealthy in 19th Century Europe for pampering exotic plants that they did not trust their servants to care for.
Submerge the Watering Bell in water until it is full. Place your thumb over the hole in the top. Keep it level. (It will take practice to keep it level.) Hold over the plant needing water and lift thumb off hole to let the water gently rain down. Cover hole again to stop the flow of water.
You have to keep it absolutely level. It's still going to drip some. Please let me know if you are not happy with it.
The last picture is of a different water bell in use.
This large, handmade Watering Bell was fired to 2300 degrees for strength and durability.
