    Yes, plus being terracotta it wicks through the sides also. I decided to go a little bigger because I'm going to put some kind of water loving plant in it.

    Just drop into that little water "pool" half of a "Mosquito dunk", available at garden centers. Kills the larvae! No Mosquitos! Contains BT.
