Water Once a Week for Thriving Baby Plants
Self-watering means vegetables, flowers, herbs, houseplants, and cuttings will all start easily and successfully. You just fill the reservoir once a week.
Naturally porous terracotta wicks water to nurture your seedlings with gentle moisture to thrive.

"It's 100% successful and I don't have to spend a lot of time on it. I just love them.
Saving Money and Plastic, on the way Towards Zero Waste
Our plastic-free pots arrive in plastic-free packaging (including all shipping materials). Every time you use your Orta pot, you'll be saving those single-use pots that come from the nursery.
Not to mention saving $$ too! Your 12-pack pays for itself after just two uses!
Plants pop out easily. Made from durable terracotta, your Orta pot is a lifetime investment in plastic-free gardening.
