Is the outside bottom Glassed? If not sound like it;s weeping through the ceramic.

I would talk to someone that does pottery 1st for a sealer suggestion. I think any of the concrete water proofing sealer/paints will work but, best to look for something made for pottery 1st.

The thing is glazed inside and out. Top and bottom. Not too sure what causing it...
A sealer might be a good idea regardless if its leaking or not.
I'm gonna have to see.
There is a local pottery maker out in the canyon nearby. He might be a good one to talk to.
I have the feeling he will have better info than most.

I think its weeping to. Beads slowly form on the outside and drip down.

Got it in its home and had to re-arrange my entire patio to do it. Everything looks great.
My neighbor was spraying chemicals on his side today and I'm a little worried for my side yard.
I saw it mist over the wall and hit all my vines, bonsai, tomatoes, peppers, and roses. And my new dragon fruit plant.
I hope they are ok.

Not sure why I mentioned that. I have a tendency to ramble... sorry for that.

I hear from my nursery tomorrow. I'll let you all know if they can order me a teacup lotus. For now I'll start a journal for this thing in the pond section so I can stop taking up space in the fish section lol..

If your neighbor is spraying pesticide and it is getting in your yard, do you think it would land in your bowl and make your fish and snails sick?

If I had been able to jump on this thread 9 months ago, I would have suggested Mosquitofish.
Did you ever build this?

I want to do something like this this summer... but I may just use a sturdy rubbermaid. Can anyone think of a way to beautify the outside though? I did it last summer with the rubbermaid, lilies, frogbit and platys, but it wasnt that attractive really...
