I was surprised to see there were two pots today with empty water at the bottom just like this on the photo I took just now ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/pastoragus/pOjj4XdH-image.png) See it is empty and I had to replace the water. That was only yesterday when I checked and made a blog post about my observation. This got me convinced that the water is being imbibed by the piece of cloth up to the soil where the seedling is planted ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/pastoragus/QgCEeNlB-image.png) The purpose of the pots is to self water. It would not be practical if I keep checking daily on the water level so, today I added more water to vessel below the pot. Increased the level a bit so daily monitoring will not be necessary. ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/pastoragus/Fap9ZdW1-image.png) Perhaps I can submerge the lowest part of the pot in water next time thus increasing the water level even more. I can do that once most of the water had been taken in. ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/pastoragus/3P0MgEoP-image.png) There is no significant growth on the stems and leaves of the seedlings as you can see but that does not matter for now as I was able to prove that the water at the bottom is indeed imbibed by the soil above. That is already a win for me.
