How do oyas work?

Used for more than 2000 years, ollas are microporous ceramic jars that are buried, and which are traditionally used in market gardening, vegetable gardens or ornamental gardens.
They can also be used at home, by placing them in the pots of indoor plants. We then rather talk about oyas to plant.
The technical principle is simple: automate and optimize watering by gradually diffusing a certain quantity of water.
Simply bury your ollas in the ground and fill them with water about every 4 to 6 days.

The technical functioning of oyas

How does water flow?

Clay is naturally a material that tends to retain, absorb and release water. It is partly this characteristic which gives it its elasticity and which allows ceramists to shape all kinds of objects.
To give it a definitive appearance, it is necessary to cook it. This tightens the pores of the clay.
The subtlety of ollas is that they are cooked at a very precise temperature, in order to make them solid while leaving the pores slightly open so that they can let the right amount of water pass through.

Installation and maintenance of oyas

Once your olla is in place, your plants will naturally develop their roots in contact with the clay to function in symbiosis and naturally draw the water they need.
To install an olla, simply dig a hole in the soil of your pot, bury the porous part of the olla, then fill it with water.

Check the water level every 4 to 6 days and refill as needed. Maintenance is simple and requires little effort.
