I love these but unfortunately this is the second one that has fallen and shattered. The magnets are not strong enough to hold the tubes with water and a plant.
My most recent purchase was actually to replace a propagation tube that went crashing to the ground as a result of my own clumsiness. In fact, both fell to the ground, but only one of them broke. I've had two for ~1 year now, and not only are they a SUPER cute and clean decoration in my living room, but effective, as well. We'll be repainting our living room soon, and when I was replacing one of my propogation tubes, I also picked up a set of extra 3M wall stickers so that I could hang them back up as soon as the walls were repainted.
I purchased the beautiful propagation tubes and wall mounts about a year ago. They are absolutely gorgeous, but as of recent I had 2 fall off the wall mount and shatter on my bathroom floor as the magnet became unglued from the test tube. I am assuming this is just typical wear and tear after time passes as the amount of water and the plant propagating in the test tube had not changed weight over the time period that I had it. When refilling the water, just make sure to check the security of the magnet each time.
I enjoy having the propagation stations in my office, and the test tubes are light and the right size. given that it is a flag magnet on a round tube, you do have to be a bit mindful to handle it with care so the magnet doesn't shear sideways and lose the strength of the glue.
Ordered 2 of the test tubes. They add a simple yet elegant touch to my living space. The box was damaged during shipment and one of the tubes broke. Customer service was very attentive and responded to my request for a new test tube quickly and I received the replacement within days.
