Watering my plants is taking a very long time each week so I bought a blanket material that I'd like to try as capillary matting. It is 100% nylon. I was planning on trying to line a few trays of my semi minis and see how it works. Plus the humidity level in the room seems a bit low at 30% so hopefully this will boost the humidity too.
My question is, can I use this method of watering even though my plants are not wicked? Will the plant really take up water from the wet matting?
Second question: how much water should I put in the tray? Should it just soak the blanket material as long as it does not turn into a "lake" of water? Is it best to let the water pretty much dry out before I soak it again or do I keep it consistently moist?
