Wet Foam Blocks 2-7/8"X3-7/8"X8-7/8" 2/Pkg-Green Wet Foam Blocks 2-7/8"X3-7/8"X8-7/8" 2/Pkg-Green available on October 24 2015 from Amazon for 2.84
5.0 out of 5 stars
I made some self-watering plant pots following plans I found on the Internet. Basically, you cut a milk jug or two liter plastic bottle in half. You plug the mouth of the bottle with wet foam by pressing it down into the foam block then insert the top half upside down into the bottom half so the mouth of the bottle is held an inch or so above the bottom. Cut a hole in the side of the bottom half and fill the top half with soil and the bottom half with water. The wet foam forms a water wick and draws water up into the soil above. All you have to do keep the bottom half filled with water. You have to be careful working with wet foam...even a small amount of pressure will dent it.

So I ordered this "generic" wet foam and the more expensive Oasis wet foam for the plug. I wrote a similar review for the Oasis foam. In summary, both seem to do the job I need. I would recommend this foam for the wick plugs I needed.

I've never used floral foam before, and I'm making pinwheel centerpieces for a birthday party and this is great! Cuts easily with kitchen knife, and the "stems" I'm using are paper straws and they slide right into the foam easily and stay put. Ordering a larger pack now.

The two blocks were received packed securely with bubble wrap and tightly placed in the box. Yet, each block had three-inch deep finger and hand print craters. 50% or more of the blocks were unusable. 1/2 of each block crumbled into powdered pieces when the protective plastic was removed. The only conclusion is that the blocks were sent damaged from the factory. The packers obviously dug their hands into the foam when taking off the shelf. I chose to cut my losses with the usable part, instead of returning, because I was on a time crunch.
