    Your sock technique is very innovative. Good way to reuse old socks. We could fill the sock with any water retaining material like shards of old cotton cloth maybe.

    Must try this trick with socks. I had a Renanthera monachica, but I killed it quite quickly. I forgot watering it quite often, so at the end it died. I'll try again if I see one at any of the shows I visit.
