(4) The first root that grew down straightly was stopped where touched to the plastic saucer. And the next roots grew bending at the bottom of plastic pot. They look like studying.
(5) In these days, it is cooler. I annoyed the temperature in pot to be lower. But it was the same.

5 Discussion
(1) In mid summer, plants continued to grow well in this technique. The humidity between the unglazed and plastic pots was almost 100 %.It is the ideal situation, I believe.
(2) I water them regularly once in a week in the summer heat.

6 Problems
