Things we didn't know we needed and don't.

The craze of the year in floral arrangement is to buy colored jelly balls that suck up the water in the vase so you don't need to see that ugly water. They come in many colors of course. If they are recyclable and reusable? Probably not. I bet there are a nice breeding ground for some rot-inducing bacteria. This item sold like crazy at the Philadelphia Flower Show.

Ugly water, ha! I wonder if they help stabilize flowers? Still!

I don't think they help stabilize the flowers unless you have very dainty stems. But I wonder - after you have used them, you have to throw them out because I bet they are great places for bacteria to grow. Seems like a big waste too.
