I bought this thinking that it would be a nice decorative piece that I could also use to water the few plants that I have - however, it LEAKS all over the place. It's very pretty and I still love it as a decorative piece, but I wish I had known that it was otherwise useless before I purchased it!
This is not that useful if you want to keep your plants fresh because the pump is not that powerful and its not creating a quality mist. I found a pretty good replacement at [...] whos upper part was much stronger and it creates large mist over my plants.
When it comes to this model on Target it can be only used for decoration and thats it.

Quite Beautiful, Quite Functional... when it works.
When I first purchased this mister, it didn't work. After fiddling with it, It misted beautifully. A strong full mist that was much better than the plastic spray bottles I was using previously. However after a month I started to notice particles in the water, it was the paint chipping off inside the pressure tube and backing into the bottle. The small parts of the sprayer are easily clogged and many times I had trouble with it not woking because of paint chips in the sprayer. Now I think the inside is rusting because if I don't use it daily, it's very hard to get spraying again and has ceased up. All the parts are glued shut and there is no way to see inside, or clean it but the rust colored water and particles in the water are showing me that this is not a product built to last. I continue to fiddle with it and can usually get it to work with some fines because I like the aesthetic. For most people though, it's probably not worth the hassle.
While this little mister is beautiful to look at thats all its good for. The pieces are very delicate and the metal is soft.
Unfortunately I cannot say how the misting is as mine never worked.
I would recommend this only if you intend to use it for display.

I am very pleased with the Copper Hose Bowl by Smith & Hawken. It has drain holes, more than one, which many manufacturers don't think about. The quality of the copper is substantial. I'm sure it will eventually turn a gorgeous patina.Love it!
