    I always water them from the bottom so the VFT can soak up whatever moisture it needs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I top water and also the plants sit in a saucer of water. As the water level drops in the saucer and the soil looks less wet, I add water from the top with no ill effects. They also get rained on.
