Here's how an olla colla cup waters your garden...
They're fed from a water reservoir via 1/4" tubing.
That water fills up your olla cup and seeps out through the clay wall into your plant's root zone.
A reservoir allows you to fill enough water to last a while rather than just having the water volume of the cup. Hand filling a bunch of these would be a pain, so we made it so you don't have to.
Most households use between 40 and 60 psi. Our reservoir allows you to use the ultra low pressures of 1/2 to 1 PSI to feed your olla cotta cups.
Those low pressures allow the water to seep constantly at a rate that doesn't overwhelm your roots, giving you healthier plants.
