I know this is probably on here somewhere but I'll just ask anyway. Is a self watering pot with a cotton wick ok to use for a fly trap?

I’ve heard they work….I’ve heard they don’t. I think it depends on the grow mix, climate, etc. You could try one and see how it works for you and your conditions. Just be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t dry out. I usually go by sight and pot weight.

Btw, welcome to the forum!

It would depend also on the design of the pot, too.
