I am brand new to the forum and have a question regarding using the tray method to water. I know there have been other posts on this same topic, but I can't figure out if I've done something wrong. My new plant arrived this morning, so I went ahead and planted it (12 inch plastic pot with plastic water tray) using the media from the flytrapstore. I only use distilled and rain water. So far I have not watered from the top, only using the tray. But, when I watered from the tray, it does not seem to be wicking very high up the pot, even after waiting several hours. The pot has 4 drain holes. I did not moisten or wet the media before planting the new fly trap. Could that be the problem?
I appreciate any advice that you may have!
