One of my self-watering pots, which is home to an S. alabamensis 003 and an anonymous S. oreophila, suddenly developed a powerful urine smell. *What's weird is that the pot is on top of a fence; a good 5 ft above the ground. *Our Brittannies (both male) are quite talented dogs, but a trajectory like this would be beyond even their capabilities. *So what happened?
The pot is filled with a blend of LFS and sponge rock, so it should be a pretty free draining and well aerated mix. *And the smell is definately from the mix, not a buggy pitcher. *After getting a whiff of that smell and tracking it to the source, I drained the pot and ran a half gallon of clean water through it. *I'm going to let it air out a bit before watering again.
