Terracotta watering spikes are hollow spikes made from terracotta clay that stick in the soil near your plants. These spikes are then filled with water from a long-neck bottle, like a wine bottle, allowing the porous clay to slowly release water from the bottle into the surrounding soil, thus watering your plants. The surrounding soil will wick water away from the spike into the root zone of your plant, providing your plant with the water it needs. Moisture tension between the terracotta spike and the surrounding soil will determine how much water is pulled from the spike and water source. The dryer the soil, the more water is pulled. The wetter the soil the less water is pulled. Soil type is very important to how well the spikes will work. Terra cotta spikes work best in loose potting soil that can wick water away from the spike, dense clay soils do not work as well. Before using terracotta self-watering stakes please ensure the plants soil is well moistened prior to inserting the self watering stakes.
