AV pots...how to use them?
I have a couple of beautiful AV pots I got at a thrift store very cheap, and I potted up my only two standard violets in them, and lost them both!
I mixed 1/3 perlite with AV soil, as usual, and planted, watered, and added water to the reservoir. It seems the soil stayed too wet, and now they are dead. I managed to salvage a couple of leaves from them, but I'm just heartbroken!
What is the proper way to water with these things? I thought that they were designed not to keep the soil too wet. Perhaps this is why the person gave them away!
