Best Garden Gadget

by

I bought two of these for a 3 foot by 6 foot raised bed where I planted my tomatoes this year. My tomatoes have been thriving all summer. Where my other plants that rely on my watering regularly look like they are wilting in the summer heat, my tomatoes have been lush, healthy, and never look wilted in the summer sun. I've also had the best yield this year. I will be purchasing more Oya's for my other raised beds next year!

Perfect Solution for Water Conservation.

by

I love my Oyas! I have them in my butterfly garden, my herb and vegetable garden and a flower bed that didn't get enough water from sprinkler. We are in a drought and have water rationing. These are the perfect solution. I believe I will also get better results in my garden because of the deep watering.

It's just okay

by

I doesn't hold water near as long as it claims to. The water has to be replaced every other day or so.

total waste of money

by

i bought several of the small grow oya's which i reviewed as OK these bigger ones drain in about a day an expensive mistake dont fall for it the claims

GrowOya's Response:
Thanks Will. Your larger Oyas will take a few weeks to get settled in. Once they do you'll see improvement in the fill days—your plant's roots will find the Oya underground and efficiencies will improve. Stick with it, you'll see the difference!

Not as advertised

by

I bought two of these (Medium) to try in my raised garden beds, which are 3 x 3 feet. Even though the beds were well watered prior to installing the Oyas, I found that the Oyas were only half full after just 24 hours. This is despite supplemental watering with the garden hose. I check them daily and always find them only about half full after 24 hours. The top layers of soil are dry. Interesting idea but II would not recommend them, as they don't come close to providing water for 7-10 days as advertised.

GrowOya's Response:
Thanks for the comment Sally. It sounds like a planting configuration issue. With bigger raised beds you need to plant your bigger rooted plants (tomatoes, kale, cucumbers) on the edges so the roots can reach the Oya underground. The water will not necessarily reach out to the edges of a big planter, rather the roots need to grow in (which big ones will do naturally). Hope that helps.

The GrowOya Story

GrowOya - Deep Root Watering Vessel

Dig This

It can be easy to forget to water plants and we often waste water when we do. GrowOya solves both issues, elegantly.

This terracotta watering system simplifies—and improves—the process of caring for your plants. Simply dig the Oya into the soil (with the spout exposed) and fill it up every few days. Boom . . . you’re done. The Oya and your plants work together to do the rest.

The Oya’s porous terracotta material releases water slowly near the roots, where it's needed. This method saves a LOT of water (up to 70%) because it reduces runoff and evaporation. Put one or more pots in places that the
hose or sprinklers can’t reach. Or use them anywhere and everywhere for effective, efficient watering.

Founder Josh McWilliams wanted to water his rooftop garden sustainably. So when he discovered the “olla” (pronounced ‘oya’), an ancient way of gardening with terracotta pots, he saw a chance to change the way people care for their gardens today. Fellow Founders Kenny Torrance and Brant Cheetham joined and GrowOya was born.

With the time-honored wisdom of the Oya, you’ll save time, save water, and grow happier plants.
