Yes. It has been proven that the most effective way to increase the area is by adding a little water to the base pot. This is true of all plants. This water should be added slowly so that it doesn’t kill the plant. If you do this, the plant will have a chance to use that water to grow roots deeper so that the area under the pot can increase.
We don’t know if we can’t easily increase the water level by adding a little water to the base pot. We’ve done that already with the new water.
Thats a good point. We are going to try to increase the area under the base pot by adding more water and see how this actually works.
This is good because if we make a new water level by adding a little water, it will help the plant grow and have a chance of growing into a better pot.
We have done this before, and it worked. We have just one more experiment to try to see if we can do this with the new water level.
