    Default Pot Saucer

    For those growing indoor or outdoor and use a pot with a saucer, do you leave the water in the saucer after you've watered it or dispose that water?

    Always dispose. Do not let plants sit in runoff.

    Always dispose of run off, don't let your plants sit in it

    Always dispose of this water, it contains salts you don’t want going back into the rootzone.

    It would be similar to peeing, crapping & puking in a bath - & then sitting in it

    What classes as 'sitting in runoff' When I water my soil the water seems to run straight through to the saucer, then 1 minute later it has sucked it all up.

    You are not watering enough as if the medium can suck back then it's not fully hydrated...
