Yes – but you have to use them correctly. A “self watering” container doesn’t actually water itself. It is a watering system using planters that contain a reservouir of water at the bottom
Plants like succulents, orchids, cactus & sedum need the soil to dry out completely in between watering. So a self–watering planter will not be a good choice for those types of plants. But most every other type of plant will thrive in a self watering planter
You can use your Oasesbox® for almost every plant from tomatoes to Vegetables and Flowers as well as miniature Trees, It can be used for mature and young plants as well as for seeds. The reduced frequency of watering is a benefit especially for water loving plants, but every plant loves the even water supply.
This will depend on where you place your Oasesbox®. Typically, the growth duration for the different plants and vegetables until harvest is not much different then for plants raised in any other pots or raised beds. What is different is the equal and continuous water supply for the plants to grow and florish.

Oasesbox works on
Capillary action (sometimes capillarity, capillary motion, capillary effect, or wicking) is the ability of a liquid to flow in narrow spaces without the assistance of, or even in opposition to, external forces like gravity. The effect can be seen in the drawing up of liquids between the hairs of a paint-brush, in a thin tube, in porous materials such as paper and plaster, in some non-porous materials such as sand and liquefied carbon fiber, or in a biological cell. It occurs because of intermolecular forces between the liquid and surrounding solid surfaces. If the diameter of the tube is sufficiently small, then the combination of surface tension (which is caused by cohesion within the liquid) and adhesive forces between the liquid and container wall act to propel the liquid.
