Loofah Sponge as a Replacement for Wicking Basket in SWC??
Thinking of alternatives to a wicking basket in the EarthTainer to eliminate the Potting Mix sitting in the water reservoir. The benefit would be to have pristine water in the reservoir.
I've come across a 7 inch Loofah Sponge that I think would perform the necessary wicking into the Potting Mix, without collapsing as a traditional sponge would do under the weight of the Potting Mix poured on to the Aeration Bench.
Anyone with experiences using a Loofah Sponge to accomplish this - - or any alternative suggestions for a "hard" sponge-type wicking medium?
