watering seeds/seedlings from below?
Can anyone help me out with watering from below. I know it's a good idea for seeds and seedlings but I have such a hard time with it. Either I put a small container in a tray with water and it seems to never suck up water to the top, or I put too much water in the tray and it sucks so much up before there are puddles on the top of the pot. Is there a rule of how many inches of water in a tray compared what size pot you use?
I don't need to use bottom watering for everything but for seeds that are so tiny that I don't want to get them washed away, I would prefer that method. Also for seedlings with leaves close to the soil, the bottom-watering method should work better.
