50 Olla Balls only with approximately 1 foot of tubing.
This is an emitter, that is buried under, or near a plant's root system. It makes an osmotic field, of moisture underground.
The patent pending, Olla Ball irrigation system, provides a new and useful way to water and feed your plants with low maintenance for the gardener. It also saves on water wasting, as the plant only takes what it needs.
Top soil is rarely wet (unless it rains) therefore, cutting down on weed population and unwanted insect population.
The reservoir is hooked up to a water supply line. The Olla Balls are buried then gravity fed water, continuously.
About Olla Technology:
Olla technology has been used for at least 4000 years. Evidence of olla use in agricultural populations has been discovered in Asia, Africa and the Americas. Throughout time this technology traveled with human populations as they migrated from place to place, even spanning continents. But over time, what was once a common and efficient method of irrigation was replaced by the convenience of modern access to a seemingly endless supply of water. Now this ancient technology is regaining a presence in modern agricultural settings as its efficiency within a conservation mindset takes root. It turns out, that endless supply of water isn't endless and is actually in increasingly short supply.
