You mentioned, "I cut the bottom out of the pot. I also drilled some additional 1/4" holes next to the existing vent holes for more air flow."
Are those in the bottom or the top???
Why did you feel it necessary to drill them???
Did it work out like you thought it would???
Sorry, don't want to be a pain in the butt, however, you're the first I've read that did something like that... felt compelled to ask.
thanks for your thoughts.
