Re: Watering Pots & Baskets
When soil becomes too dry and compacted, it doesn't soak up water as readily as when it's somewhat moist and loose in the pot. This is why you want to repot periodically and use a mix that's got "water grabbers" in it such as vermiculite and peat moss.
Using pots with an integrated saucer will give water a place to pool until the soil/plant can absorb it, so a reservoir of some sort is a good thing.
