"Alberto, my pots are mostly very large (largest 29 cm diameter on top) and 
of red clay with glazed "saucers". No water ever runs out onto the saucer.

Dear Carol:
               Great if it means that you give them only the proper amount 
they can use. But, there are also many cases in which water just do not run 
through because the mix has degraded too fine and/or the drainage hole at 
the bottom is not working anymore. Surprisingly, most people would poke a 
finger and if the mix is dry in the upper layer keep on adding water without 
realizing that if the water is not going out, it must remain somewhere.
All the best
