oyama pot watering
I have recently put my 5 African violets into Oyama pots. How literally do you take the advice to let them dry out between waterings? I followed the potting instructions and filled the water at first to the top line. Now, 9 days later, all but the biggest plant still have significant amounts of water left in the reservoir.
Is it normal for newly potted plants (the ones in question are in 4" pots) to take a long time to take up water? How long should I wait after they're dry to fill up again to the lowest line?
Thanks for any advice.
P.S. Ma's Winter Moon is still lookin' scrawney. Almost feel like putting pure "Super Thrive" in the reservoir! :-)
