I have a self watering ceramic AV pot that I used for many years and it worked great. However, a few years ago, I let the water level get too low and the plant started looking stressed from lack of water. I then put water in the pot but for some reason it would not wick anymore. I waited and waited but the plant looked horrible and lost many leaves. Now, for a few years, I have been watering from the top but I would really like to use the wicking method again. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the wicking process going again? Should I just try again with putting water in the bottom part? This mature plant is in full bloom now and I wouldn't want to stress it so I am treading lightly.
