I think it is possible to use fish tubing with a small bowl to keep the tree watered, but am not a scientist. Space to deliver water into the stand (with tree) is ca. 3mm. The base holds at best 2dl water without tree, so figure .5dl with tree.
It's a fresh cut scandinavian tree and needs constant supply or it won't make it to jul (xmas).
Any ideas greatly appreciately. Cutting the stem to feed more water into the base is ok, but still need to find a way for constant watering.
