      I will let you know. Some students in California did a study one with sand and one with dirt and according to their science project the one filled with dirt worked better. Also the pot was hard to keep clean due to salts after watering it but if you use rain water to cool it you may not hve this problem (this information is on a different website).

      I would love to hear how it works for you. Please report back with your
      results. This will save me one research project.
      Bright Blessings,
