I was thinking of taking a foam ball, covering it up with soil and rocks, while having only the bottom part touching the water. So when you water the bowl, the foam sucks it up.


At last.....

I'm too lazy....

i wrapped a rock with sphagnum moss and then tied around it with fishing line. the moss wicks the water up. it doesnt brake apart if you tie it well..
