Did you know that surface watering is inefficient? Plants do best when they get water right at their roots. That’s just where the GrowOya aims, as it’s a terracotta vessel that’s buried mostly underground. Fill it every few days and water will naturally seep into the soil so roots can take just the right amount. You’ll be saving water and time… score!
You can make your own olla (pronounced oh-yah), of course, if you are so inclined, or you can get a few from GrowOya, in the appropriate size for your planter box or garden.
