Container water movement (Al's post)- question re wick
for Al or anyone who follows his method. I am slowly making my way thru the long thread :) so perhaps this question has been answered-
re the wick - I had a hard time picturing it, cuz I could only think of a candle wick, but then Al or someone said one could use the tie that ties bunches of vegies.
OK, now I've got a wick. It is about 7 inches long. Is that too long?
And I know it goes thru one of the drainage holes - so the soil holds the part that is inside, and the part outside the pot hangs down, sits on earth?
is this correct?
