I got a greenhouse last summer, and I noticed that my VFT soil was hard to keep moist with a water table at around an inch/two inch depth. I currently grow my VFTs in six inch pots and was considering getting deep trays to solve this problem. Would it be a bad idea to get deep trays with a water level of around four inches high, and allow the water to evaporate between waterings? I just don't want to over water the plants (the dreaded root rot), and I'm afraid that some of my newly potted plants do not have a root system deep enough to access water only at an inch depth during summer (I don't want the soil to dry out). Thoughts?
