I use plastic pots, concrete and ceramic pots with holes at the bottom, often without a saucer for outside. When I water, I bath my plants or put enough water and allow excess amount to pass through the holes.
Now when this excess water goes down, it takes some amount of potting soil with it which I don't wanna lose. Now keeping a saucer underneath could do that job, but then again you would have move the pot to take it out, store the media and so on. As the pots are bigger it is quite hectic. Is there any other way to retain the soil that going out the drainage holes, without doing much ?
So far, I have tried-
Making the holes smaller. Which works at first, then nothing, not even excess water goes out.
With bigger holes, put paper(like newspaper material) or a piece of thin cloth over the holes. But not for a long time (obviously). Eventually I have to re-pot again.
So, anything else, without much effort or re-potting again and again?
