Holiday travel is booked, you’re wrapping up at work, and all is set for you to head off to family/friends for the upcoming break. It’s only at the last minute where you have a minor freak-out wondering who is going to water your plants. Instead of bribing your friend or neighbor, maybe get this self watering planter by Joey Roth. The planter’s earthenware central chamber allows water to slowly seep into the soil as the plant absorbs only what it needs. The planter is inspired by the Olla, an ancient irrigation tool used in arid climates.
