It is self watering. As the person in last review mentioned it his holding the penis. Self watering comes from the bottom that is inserted in the dirt otherwise it would be a mess. This will be the perfect gift for my gnome loving friends. Perfect off the wall gift!
The product should be named "Gnome holding his bits". I mean I guess it's cute enough but it's name is deceptive. Off the Wagon Shop was super fast to ship. They packaged the little guy super well, they were responsive to me pointing out he doesn't pee. I would order something from them again but this item itself isn't what I expected.
