Some people believe that having flowers and plants at home can bring positive vibes, energies and auras. Some love to be surrounded by them for the nostalgic and sentimental values they have, while others love to be surrounded by the earthy scents and odour. Whatever your reason, there’s no denying that living with plants comes with a cost. From timing your watering schedules according to each plant type, to not being able to travel or crash over a friend’s house for a few days because there’s no one to water your plants. Having someone to host and accommodate your plants for a few days could be arranged, but you always worry how much hassle you’re causing them, or if they’re actually sticking to the watering schedules.
Recently, a new innovative method has arrived to our Egyptian markets and is considered to be the one and only solution all plant owners need to fix all these inconveniences once and for all. No more leaving your plants unwatered and not properly taken care of.
Clayola is a handy gadget made specially for the comfort of plant owners and the well-being of their greens. It is a self-running system, which means it can water 6+ plants for several weeks using only gravity, giving each of your plants the exact amount of water needed to avoid over or under irrigation. It’s available in a box of 6 clay pots.
As mentioned in their Facebook page, “Clayola is handmade by local Egyptian artisans out of clay; a natural porous material that allows the transfer of water from the Clayola pot to the 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. In effect the plant extracts the water it needs from each clay pot. After a while a plant’s root system will find the source of water and literally hug the Clayola, allowing for maximum water use. The glazed top prevents water from evaporating into the air.”
