Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Podocarpus Ball Love my podocarps ball. Could get nothing to grow in my huge planter and was sick of dealing with it. Bought this ball and problem solved! Looks great!!!! No watering, just occasional hose to get dust off. Doesn't get better than that!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It lives! I moved from Colorado which has warm days but cool nights to Oklahoma where it gets much hotter during most days. We often visit relatives so I try to not use real plants in some areas but this one looks very real. It seems like it is living!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average quality, but pretty with some work. I love my podocarpus ball at first, but after 1 year it looked like a cheap plastic ball. I had to hit up Home Depot for green spray paint. The color was then darker due to my paint job, but it looked real once again, similar to that of an evergreen shrub. The sun and warm weather makes PVC fade very very quickly. The heat makes it smell so so bad. Guests at my door said it smelt like a cat had marked somewhere, but it was actually the podocarpus ball. It was embarrassing. Keep it indoors and it will be fine and better. Way way better! Also, warning, spiders LOVE nesting and making webs all in and in this thing. I am constantly hosing it off. Brushing it makes webs stick. I recommend this if you are willing to paint it later after it fades.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color doesn't last The faux podoarpus ball was just what I was looking for to put in my Zoey urns on my covered front porch. I'd read that the color didn't last for some customers but decided to give them a try. Yes, my porch is covered but gets full morning sun. Unfortunately, my bright green "plants" are now blue-green. These are not cheap items and I'm disappointed I didn't get more than a year and a half out of them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice looking We had a hard time trying to tie down inside our pots so the wind would not blow them away. I am returning and will purchase something attached to a branch type Faux to place in my pots. These would be better if they had something attached so that you can place them in a pot with out them blowing away or grandkids grabbing them. They also come apart easily so don't try and pick them up from the top. We learned the hard way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product in general This is second one ordered and very satisfied with both sizes and all the items ordered so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic These Podocarpus balls are perfect for my urns by my front door. My front door doesn’t get much sun so I’m not sure how they would fare under direct sunshine. They look very real and even on windy days they have stayed in place with nothing holding them down. I just pushed them down a bit when I put them out the first time. Love them! No watering!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Podocarpus Ball Love it! Looks real in my urn on the front porch and adds to the ambience I want to portray!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flat on both ends The top and bottom are both flat, not round as the ball should be. This was disappointing. I was able to lift part of it up, but shouldn’t have had to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality These balls were the perfect size and made with such great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is it really Faux? This faux ball looks so full, beautiful and real, There is no way you would ever know it is faux unless you touch it. I love them. I purchased 2 and they are on each side of my front door. I have bought many things from Grandinroad and have never been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! After spending a lot of money trying to keep up live plants outside my store, I bought two of these for these outdoor planters. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gardners thought they were real! I bought two of these balls to place in round urns at our entry. They look completely realistic so that I had to tell the gardners not to trim them! They came well packed and ready to use. I highly recommend them to add no maintenance greenery to any part of your yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The size is perfect for the pots on the deck! They look so good on the deck I bought a third one for my bedroom! I do rotate the ones outside so they stay in good shape. I store them in a deck box for winter. I have purchased many items from Grandin Road and they do not disappoint! Would recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from shape problem received the faux ball and was impressed. Second ball was slightly mis-shaped but managed to plumped it up. Anxious to see how the last since they are outside and receive morning sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific!!!!! Bought two for my Zoey and three smaller for my black urn planters...(can't think of their names but they begin with a "G" also from Grandin Road)..so all together I purchased five in all...two large and three smaller ones....they are gorgeous..and I am NOT (... and I repeat.... NOT) one for faux stuff, but got tired of re-purchasing new shrubs every year because of this very hot and then very cold weather.....I have purchased from other companies for variety, ONLY..GR,make some cypress, boxwood and spruce shrubs an I will only purchase from you guys..... GRANDIN ROAD are the best as far as looks, quality. curb appeal....don't hesitate...you will be glad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Life like! Worth the money! When I bought these, I assumed they'd look fake and I thought they were expensive...HOWEVER, I am a believer and am buying another one. I have boxwoods right in front of them and you can't tell the difference. I plant things every year and they die constantly so I am now on my third one and get a ton of compiments. Worth the money. Also, they are flexible, almost like a durable balloon so you can jam them into a planter and not worrry that they'll break off. Take the plunge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this purchase so I went back and bought a second one It’s very full No gaps Looks real I have mine outside and it’s holding up great!

I have a round planter with a diameter of about 14 inches. Is the 14in ball the right size or will it sink too low? If iIget the larger one will it push in snug, or will it be too high and blow out with any wind? please let me know what's best. thank you

Asked by: ball
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. The 14" ball will fit into your 14" planter but will not have the full look like the picture. It will sink into your planter.

What size width does the planter need to be to hold the 14" Faux Ball?

Asked by: marthar
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. Anything smaller than 13 1/2" should work for the 14" ball.

Is this attached to a stake to be used to hold it in urn? Or is it just a round ball of greenery?
