    That's a pretty cool idea. Nice work, Av8tor1.

    Butch, I am a bit concerned that you have insufficient silicone adhesive on that pot. There's still some in the tube; I feel sure of that, heh, heh, heh. It reminded me a bit of the Drosophyllum pot that Adrian Slack had recommended, back in the 1980s . . .
