    I missed out on the seed, darn work... but I was wondering why you use a pot within a pot.

    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    It's a technique invented by Adrian slack. It allows you to sit the pot in a tray of shallow water, and the inner pot only gets moisture by wicking from the outer pot. That way the medium around the plant is just barely damp and the humidity around the plant is higher.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I believe it is to reduce the "sudden root death" that Drosophyllum are notorious for doing, dying with repotting. This way, pot within a pot, lets the plants roots grow through the holes in it and it can grow roots into the larger pot as well.

    Jermiah, I believe that the one on the list as "Jim Straw" is me. My name is Jim Straus and that is a common errant rendering. Is the address: for Wyomissing, Pennsylvania and the handwriting - "chicken scratch"? Then it is likely me.
