Eco Sphere a huge hit
Comments about Product:
I got this gift for my husband so he could put it on his desk at work. It came with 4 shrimp. Product arrived in a well packaged in an overnight ECO BOX. Despite the weather being incredibly hot the sphere was fine. There are shrimp reported to have lived 15 yrs in these spheres. If yours die the company will recharge yours w new shrimp and you can also trade in for larger spheres by mailing it back to the company. I am extremely pleased. Wish it was larger but this was a super cool gift. It would make a great gift for kids old enough to realize its glass and fragile. Would be a great gift for someone in a dorm. I plan to order a few more for gifts! Everyone who has seen it likes it

The Olla: A Brief History

Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.

When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.

The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.

Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!

How it Works:

Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
