Sphagnum, Clay and Peanuts

I freely admit that some of my plants are over potted, but they are not as over potted as they look from on top. All my clay pots have at least one layer of peanuts in the bottom of the pot and some are half full of peanuts.

By peanuts I mean the "bad, not bio-degradable" kind. The "good" peanuts turn to slime in the pot.

This pot fell a couple of months ago and the bottom broke off. I have been growing it like this since. As you can see, the sphagnum is not all that thick. It is much easier to control the moisture level like this and if the roots grow out of the spagnum into the air space they will be just fine.

I have adjusted the comment security to make it easier to leave a comment. If you had tried and found it too hard, please try again. So far, the level of spam has been acceptable. Blogger filters most and I watch the comments daily and I can delete the rest.
