How to Use:
Bury your olla in the ground or in the center of a larger container up to the glazed portion of its neck.
Place seeds or plants around the circumference of the olla. Fill the olla with water and place the glazed lid over the top
to prevent evaporation and mosquitoes.
3. Continue to water the seeds or plants and keep the olla filled daily
for a week or two to help get them established, then switch to just adding water to the olla. Mulch around the plants and
olla to further prevent evaporation.
4. It is hard to estimate how often you will need to add water to the olla. Variables are: # of plants,
amount of rainfall, types of plants, etc. Based on our experience, and using one bell pepper or tomato plant per olla, I only
needed to add water about every 5-7 days during the drought of 2011!
