They are, of course, trying to sell a book. But for anyone with even a modicum of sense, you certainly don't need a book to do this. I've tried it in the past but unless you can get your hands on pots that are more like short pipes with bottoms in them (you know, straight up and down) the pots take up too much room to use with root plants. You're better off just doing a short daily watering session by hand, morning and evening or something. Besides, ceramic pots and pipes are expensive, at least in this area they are. If you get the teeny ones suitable only for starting plants you might get them for $4.00 bux apiece, but the larger ones are quite spendy. I don't have time to go to rummage or auction sales (and am not a fan of those anyway) but you might be able to pick them up cheaply that way. If you do, be sure to clean them well (look up instructions online because everyone does it differently). Ceramic/terra cotta pots (unglazed) can harbor bacteria if not well cleaned between uses.
