Agreed but it's the point of the pot

People used to buy these little...radiators for gas stovetops. They kinda looked like a single piston cylandar off a scooter, all fins to radiate heat. I don't think anybody was fooled that the radiators increased the amount of heat.

If it's indeed supposed that the flower pots somehow magically increase the BTUs generated by a tea candle then we do indeed have a case for losing all hope and throwing ourselves off cliffs forthwith.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
