They work great for me, and I've never had any trouble with them. Just put them deep enough that the fish can't uproot them.

I've used them in the past with good results, but I've switched over to root tabs. The downside is if they get accidentally uprooted they will dissolve quickly into the water column. This may cause an imbalance that will jump start algae. Root tabs dissolve slowly and you can re-bury them much easier than a mushy Jobe's stick.
