I have a colleague who is a beginner at gardening. He is trying to plant something. He bought a pre-packed plant with soil inside a can. He just put the seeds in the soil and borrowed my sprayer to spray the soil everyday (a small sprayer which I use to spray off any soil attached to my mother-in-law's tongue's base).
However, I am thinking that the water molecules created by the spray are too small and less dense than the water in a water container such as cup. I wonder if any of the water reaches to the bottom.
My thinking is the spray could wet the soil at the top and the seeds can germinate. However, when the plant grows and its root are going deeper in the soil the sprayer might not be suitable anymore. What do you think?
