Indoor gardening is now easier than ever. Oakland-based startup Back to the Roots designed a self-watering planter that uses ancient and low-tech technology that’ll do the watering for you without the need for expensive apps or micro-sensors. The key to the self-watering planter is the miniature clay olla—a low-fired clay pot used in North Africa for thousands of years—that holds water that seeps slowly out from the porous sides. The product also comes with a 64 ounce mason jar filled with “organic moisture-balancing biochar and organic nutrient-rich soil,” two organic fertilizer spikes, and organic cherry tomato seeds. You can find the self-watering planter at Barnes & Noble store nationwide and select Home Depots; the product will also be sold online in the near future. + Back to the Roots Self Watering Planter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
