15 percent leaching and the dish
I am assembling my ingredients for 5:1:1 and Gritty mixes, looking forward to my first plantings in them. My avocado pit should be almost ready. Josh, I like the look of your "Gritty 5:1:1"--thanks.
How do you handle the water that collects in the dish holding the container? I know from reading here that when watering, I should aim for 15% leaching. My starts will be inside for now (still winter here in Ohio). I don't want the water to leak out onto the floor, so how do you pros handle the logistics of watering indoors? And you probably don't want water sitting in the dish. Do you all water in a sink, then transfer to the dish on the floor?
