The olla is an intelligent watering system that has been around for centuries and makes it easier for you to care for your plants every day. Thanks to the porosity of the clay in contact with water, this natural material tank will water your plants independently.
Too much water or not enough? With an Olla your plant manages its water needs (almost) by itself.
Choose the plant that will benefit from the benefits of olla
Insert the olla in the soil, next to the plant and close to the roots
Remove the small cap and fill the olla with water
Watch nature do its work and your plant grow
Check from time to time if there is water left, in order to fill the olla when it is empty
Just as a human would wear a piece of jewelry, the olla allows the plant to have a nice accessory.
Moreover, this object, although decorative, also has many practical points.
What to link the useful to the pleasant.
“Olla is a beautiful connection between a creation of nature and the work of man.”
To offer you beautiful and durable ollas, we collaborate with the Lutton Pottery, based in Vendée. This family business applies all its know-how in the artisanal realization of each olla. Their know-how is passed on from generation to generation and goes back to the 16th century. You will receive ollas with a real story in your mailboxes!
The ollas are made of clay, a 100% natural and biodegradable material.
The ollas of our partner, the Lutton pottery, are handmade and each object is unique.
Many types of plants will welcome an olla in their pot. Only succulents will not need this clay container because they need very little water. Some examples of succulents: cactus, aloe vera, Kalanchoe…
An olla has a capacity of 20 to 25 centilitres. It can thus feed your plants in flower pots of 12 to 25 centimeters in diameter.
You can refill your olla as soon as there is no or almost no water left inside the container. At the beginning of the use, you fill it once a week. After several weeks of use, you will see if your plant needs a lot of water (the olla empties quickly) or if it does not need much water (the water will stay in the olla longer). The olla will adapt the diffusion of water to the needs of your plant. The filling requirements will therefore change (every week, every two weeks, etc.). If there is still water in the container, you do not need to add any more.
