I just acquired a small drosophyllum (in 4" clay pot) and slack potted it. The smaller pot has some sphagnum moss in the drain hole to "wick" water into the smaller pot. *
My questions are:
How on earth is the plant supposed to push its roots into the larger pot through the small, partially obstructed drain hole of the inner pot? *
Has anyone contemplated removing the entire bottom of the small pot (or enlarge the drain hole) with a masonry drill bit to allow more room for the roots to grow through?
