Set On Waterproof Surfaces: away from expensive electrical and wireless equipment. If there is no drainage dish or saucer, then water in a sink and allow to drain for at least 30 minutes before replacing on your desk.
Reduce Drainage Problems: Drainage risk is minimized with self watering containers. The next best thing is a good drainage catcher. High-sided saucers make overwatering accidents impossible.
Take Care When Watering: Pour a light stream of water along the edge of the pot. Try not to pour directly on the plant. A longneck watering can is the perfect tool for the job.
