The art of watering your plants

Wepot specializes in watering of "ollas", a millennia-old system that allows plants to provide themselves with water while saving up to 70% water. We have developed different forms of ollas to meet all needs.

"Having an environmental impact in the world".

Wepot, bringing back to life an irrigation system called "Olla" (ceramic jar) that dates back thousands of years. It was born on the school desks of the University of Lausanne, where its founders discovered the importance of water and sustainable agriculture. Since its inception, Wepot's mission has been to help gardeners and farmers grow their crops in a sustainable way while reducing their water consumption.

The irrigation system called "Olla"

Ollas are very easy to use. Whether you have small houseplants or a large garden, there is sure to be a model that suits your needs. All you have to do is plant the olla near your plants, fill it with water and let nature do its work. Through capillarity, the water distributes naturally and slowly according to the needs of the plants. The roots of these soak up the water they need and gradually surround themselves with the olla. This method of irrigation is considered one of the most effective in the world, allowing a saving of up to 70% of water, an autonomy of up to 10 days and an improvement in plant growth.

Promising scientific research

Since its inception, Wepot has aimed to enhance the technology of ollas through collaboration with biology experts. This constantly evolving research approach has allowed Wepot to demonstrate the effectiveness of its ollas: they withstand frost, increase the productivity of vegetable gardens by up to 2 times compared to conventional irrigation systems, and contribute to CO2 absorption. Wepot is proud to offer sustainable and effective irrigation solutions for gardeners and farmers.
