We water the garden with buried oyasThis watering technique is over 4000 years old, but it has never been talked about as much as it is now. The "oya" or "olla" is a porous terracotta pot that is buried. Every week, we fill it with water to the top (with a garden hose or a watering can, let's not get rid of it too quickly anyway). Watering is then done very gradually, the water moistening the earth as it crosses the porous wall. Result: the soil does not dry out, the plants do not undergo any water stress and the water savings achieved are substantial. And good news, there are even oyas to plant in pots and green plants to take advantage of this ancestral watering method on your balcony or at home. Also ideal for watering when you're not there!

We sprinkle the tomatoes with a dripFull of common sense, drip systems keep the soil moist without wetting the foliage, which can be really good for watering varieties that suffer from cryptogamic diseases, such as tomatoes. Connected to a water reserve (a simple bottle) or to pipes, these installations water the plants gradually, directly at the roots. As evaporation is limited to the maximum, the water saving achieved is estimated at 50% compared to traditional watering.
Less evaporation, more water savings
We water the green plants with a foggerAt home too, the watering can is subject to competition! Indeed, the vast majority of our indoor plants appreciate a high humidity, as in the tropics, most of which originate. When the air is too dry, because of the weather, lack of ventilation, heating or insulation, there is no point in watering them more, then they should be misted. Many models can moisten the leaves, which not only increases the ambient humidity, but also dust and scare the mites! A good pretext to invest in a beautiful vintage fogger that will delight your orchids!
