Comments about Product: The hanger is not centered so the jar hangs crooked. That makes me a little crazy but wasn't worth the trouble and expense to ship it back. And, we live in the desert so we don't get much rain here but we did have a thunderstorm go through here last night and I had to empty about 1/4" of water out of the jar this morning. I would not recommend this item.
Comments about Product: Couple of things ! The switch on the lid has a "flash" position which is not mentioned in the instructions. The unit lights up only in the flash position. Again, not mentioned in paper work. One arrived that does not function at all ! ( but i pitched reciept :( ) I would recommend firefly jars but better instructions are needed! Thanks, Michelle
Comments about Product: I have had my solar firefly jar now for over a month..I have it hanging in my backyard off a planter post.At night watching it light up as it gets dark brings back good childhood memories. I really like it !!
Comments about Product: These things work, and they are totally charming--they really do a good job of evoking fireflies. However, I was dismayed to discover that you are not supposed to leave them outside! They are not weatherproof, according to the instructions that came with them. Given that these are sold in the "Outdoor Lighting" section, I feel that this is a direct misrepresentation. I was not looking for a light that I have to shuttle in and out every time rain threatens, and am not happy about having been misled.
Comments about Product: I bought these at Christmas time. I have had them outside since the weather starting turning nice. These jars do look like fire flies in a jar. They twinkle on an off. Very realist looking. However, they only light up for about 4 hours--no matter how long they were sitting in the sun. They do not go all night long.
Comments about Product: Not really top quality, but I am more pleased with the jars than I expected. I bought three and placed them on individual Shepard's Hooks grouped together. They twinkle just like the fireflies I remember growing up. I did not expect them to twinkle - nice surprise. You may have to gently manipulate and arrange the wires containing the LEDs, as they are twisted together in one grouping inside the jar. Separating them makes the effect more realistic.
Comments about Product: These look great on the deck. Automatic light when the sun goes down. I want to hang one in the tree. Reminds me of summer days as a child. Easy to use, just leave in the sun. Even take indoors for a night light for children.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
