Wickless Self-watering container
Most of the self-water container I see consists of a cloth wick that draws water from a small reservoir beneath the pot. Recently, I notice the store also sells a self water container with no wick. Instead of a wick, the bottom of the container has a pit that dips into th reservoir. I am guessing that the idea is that the bottom of the pot is submerge in water and the capillary action takes the water up the soil. The design is simpler, but does it work? Wouldn't the plant grow downward into the water and rot?
