ok, thx now i understand, it may be ok with mature plants because their roots are bigger allowing them to suck up more water. but smaller plants wouldn't stand much of a chance with so much water.

it all make sense now!! cant wait for you results

thx for explaining that for me Steve...i kinda understand a little i think. Don't the water reservoir at the bottom suppose to due away with over-watering? And the soil that touches the water is supposed to act as a wick  sucking up only what the plant needs and the holes at the bottom supply air right?sorry for asking these questions, its just that I'm new and just want to understand.

" This self-watering thing...interesting yes, and amusing too but practical not.
And don't forget that watering the plants has some good therapeutic side effects too."

could you explain why it's not practical to grow figs in a earthbox. isn't that what bill (f4f) sort of used to grow his fig trees in, and therapeutic effect could water have on figs.

great ideals, i guess it would be easier to plant the whole pot rather than pull out the plants.

here is something I found interesting to me at least, its a diy earthbox than may be used to grow figs in.
