To illustrate how little water houseplants use in low light interiors, I'm tracking this Dracaena Janet Craig 'Compacta'. It was a new 4" plant potted into a 2-liter recycled pop bottle planter about 2 weeks ago. No additional water has been added to the plant since then.
Going into week 3, it has used and/or evaporated only 5.7 ounces of water. Two things to note, the water is fed to the plant from the bottom by capillary action (sub-irrigation). It goes directly to the roots. There is no way you can supply water to a container plant with this kind of precision by gravity feed top watering.
Read more about watering in the zone. "Listen" to your plants with a scale. Instead of you telling your plants how much water they need, have them tell you precisely how much water they need.
The so-called benefits of drench and drain watering are a myth, perhaps an intentional hoax. You don't have to take anyone's word for it. Simply do what I did yourself and you'll see with your own eyes.
When you do, please do everyone a favor by sharing what you've discovered with other people.
Incidentally, I see all those houseplants in clay pots and saucers (many of them mis-matched) on Flickr. Most of them look rather tacky to my eyes. If you're hung up on clay pots, try this and you'll stop wasting water, your time...and plants.
