Another pic. I dont have holes in the bottom because the roots would come out the holes. Instead, this setup relies on one's "not-overwatering" skills. But there's good air in the dirt and evaporation because the depth of the dirt is relatively shallow, so in case there is any overwatering, it will dry faster and damage the roots less. Lifting the tray should give a good sense of how much water is in the dirt. (I usually only get the top half inch wet when I water the plants, then let the soil absorb it down from there...)
