The Hydria plant watering pot is an irrigation system that uses gravity and dew drops to provide moisture to plants. The pointed clay pot on the bottom of the Hydria Pot is designed to be planted into soil, mimicking the way plants naturally soak up moisture from the surrounding soil with their roots. Placed beside a young plant, the Hydria Pot will continue to keep it healthy without the need for any additional energy or human interference.

The Hydria Pot was developed as a response to the rapid rate that mature trees are being cut down at, ensuring that new growths have a chance to grow into trees just as big someday. The Hydria Pot is now part of a campaign on Indiegogo, aiming to raise a total of $31,000 for production and distribution. For each Hydria Pot backed through Indiegogo, a tree will be planted.
