    Jim, when I was using that, i would just fill it up so the pots were sitting in the water a little bit.. I would add water as needed to keep the heater submerged (although it went dry PLENTY of times and never broke... ) and would fill it up high enough to water the plants when I felt necessary.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the water evaporating super quickly... Just make sure to use a decent amount of water. Heres a couple pics of my tanks with water on the bottom and a heater in them. I use a 100W for about 12 gallons under the eggcrate in my 40 gallon breeder tank:



    And a 20 Gallon High:

    That is really a great way to keep temperature and moisture for the plants..
