The sweet spot
Again as with everything this takes a bit of practice but this technique is really effective once you get the hang of it. Positioning When taking on any shot, the first thing to remember is to look for the position you need for your next shot! The sweet spot The sweet spot is simply the point of contact on the object ball that if hit with the cue ball sends it into the pocket. To find the sweet spot try the following: First of all look at the cue ball and the object ball and the line between them Next draw a line in your head from the pocket to and through to the other side of the object ball giving you 2 marks on the ball one facing the pocket and the other side of the ball.
The sweet spot is the mark that faces AWAY from the pocket. Finally line up your shot and aim to hit the sweet spot with the cue ball. It will help you improve your potting so stick with it!

Properly potted plants usually grow as well as plants grown in a garden.
Annuals, perennials, vegetables and herbs all can grow well as potted plants. Although each plant has its own pot and soil needs, some general tips can simplify the potting process and ensure each plant is grown in the environment it needs for optimum health. All plant containers should feature drainage holes on the bottom so excess moisture can drain from soil.
You can drill holes in plastic pots lacking holes, but clay pots without holes require a liner pot that has drainage holes. Plant in the liner pot, and set it in the more decorative clay pot.
Size is also an important consideration. If you are repotting a perennial plant, choose a container one size larger than the plant's old pot. Plant an annual plant in a container large enough to support the plant once it reaches its full size so you don't have to repot it multiple times during its single growing season. The best kind of soil to use depends on the kind of plant.
Most houseplants grow best in a standard potting soil while cacti and succulents require a quicker draining cactus soil mixture. Vegetables and annuals need a moist standard potting mix.
Avoid potting soil consisting of sedge peat, pure compost or garden soil because those materials drain poorly. You can mix compost with potting soil to add organic matter to the potting soil, but don't use only compost in a plant's container. Combining equal amounts of sphagnum peat, perlite and compost creates a potting mix suitable for most plants. The part of a plant where its stems emerge from its root system is called a crown.
Most plants require potting with the crown sitting at or just above the top of the soil. When potting a plant, fill one-third of the pot with potting mix, also called soil. If the soil falls through the drainage holes, then line the pot with a coffee filter before adding soil. The filter holds in the soil while allowing water to drain. Set the plant in the pot, and then add or remove soil from beneath its root ball until the crown sits 1 or 2 inches beneath the pot's rim.
Add more soil around the roots, but don't cover the crown.
