Reduce wicking of old big basket earthtainers?

14 years ago

I have read from other posts that reducing the size of the opening for the bottom chamber does not significantly reduce the amount of wicking on the old earthtainers. Did anyone try reducing the amount of wicking material in the basket? My thought is to half fill the old big basket with non-wicking materials (rocks, stryofoam, tennis balls, something like that). that would reduce the size of the wick in the old basket, and in theory (at least in my pea brain) reduce the amount of wicking. Has anyone tried this, or see a reason why it wouldn't work?
