I love these rooters...I have had several over the years...gave one to a friend, lost one in a move...then I couldn't find any.....I have the double heart..one of my rooters broke ..the remaining rooter was getting old (10-20 years old)..I was so happy to find The Brass Butterfly site....the 2 new rooter replacements I bought are great..they seem a bit sturdier....the old ones had wooden rings around the top...these are gone now . I think that's a good Idea...they get worn and warped or split after many years...but they would for some be a great 2nd choice...as to their fragility when removing them from their stand ...never pull them off ...gently twist side to side while gently pulling them...I've never had one break...I am so glad I was able to find this product again...they make great gifts !!!
New and Improved! Now thicker and more resistant to breakage. Replacement Glass fits all classic plant rooters.
4 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Very well made. I'm pleased to say that the glass is much thicker,, the neck is bigger for easier ability to accomadate bigger footings, along with ease to pull them out.
I broke one rooter from a double I inherited. Glad I ordered two as the new are noticeably heavier and lopsided the rooter frame. I replaced the older with a new rooter bulb as well to balance. While these are sturdier, I do prefer the more delicate older rooters. Truly I was delighted to even find these!
I bought this rooter 12 years ago and when I broke one I never dreamed I would be able to find a replacement.
I, as others, have an older plant rooter and unfortunately broke one of the rooter vases. I am very pleased with the new vase, it's perfect and the service was great.
I am so happy that I was able to find the replacement bulb. I was so upset when I broke mine, didn't think I would be able to find the piece. It was a perfect fit and super fast shipping!!! Very happy!!!!
The replacement bulb and the service was excellent!
I was very happy with the replacement bulb and the service was excellent!
It is very easy to break the glass rooter when pulling it off the metal unit. It fits snug on the pin and when you pull it loose it may hit the upper portion of the metal frame and shatter. The glass that came with our rooter did not have a wooden protective bezel at the top and broke the first time we put it together. I ordered a new replacement glass which had a wooden bezel at the top. Another issue is the metal finish. It was plated before it was welded together, so it has the finish burnt off where it was welded.
I have had my rooters over 25 years and I love them. Not only do they look great they also do a great job developing plant roots.
I bought my rooter about. 35yrs ago. I recently broke the vase and hated to lose use of it. I was delighted to find it at Brass Butterfly at a great price. It came in less than a week too!
