Have you ever seen the pots for plants that have a reserve built into the bottom, that allows you to add water when the water level becomes low? I think its the same thing. The roots are allowed to get water when they need it, but you are not over watering the plant, since the plant absorbs what it needs.
My grandmother, who had a very green thumb, had one for all of her plants. I use a similar but cheaper version that has a deeper plate underneath the plant pot, so that you can put a little water there every day and the plant just soaks up what it needs. I'm not the gardener my grandmother was, but hey, my plant is doing great, and all i do is water him every few days this way. Hope this helps! (06/25/2008)
Water-filled soda bottles put upside down near the roots of the plant. (06/27/2008)
