If you’re the type of person who never wants to water the plants, this is the plant for you.
The forgetful task of maintaining a full garden is now figured out. Clayola is a device that injects water into the soil of a plant over one month so you don’t have to.
Basically, the plant is connected to a pipe and is elevated into the ground. Handmade with clay by local Egyptian artisans, Clayola releases water when it notices the plant needs nourishment.
“20 Litre water container can sustain six to eight plants for weeks in the summer, and over a month during winter,” reads Clayola’s Facebook. So, in other words, one pot can water more than six plants at once.
“Clayola is inspired by an ancient traditional method of irrigation based on using clay pots, that was found throughout North Africa,” said founder Rami Halim. He wanted to make this method more accessible for modern households.
The “natural porous” material allows the transfer from pot to soil
“As water evaporates from a plant’s leaves, it draws water from the soil and as the soil dries up water is drawn from the Clayola to the soil,” Halim said. “In effect, the plant extracts the water it needs from each clay pot.”
The plant’s roots system hugs around the Clayola so the maximum amount of water flows into it. And, the silver glazed top prevents the water from evaporating into the air.
