You can also just unravel your wicks a bit. Then make small v-cuts in the silicone cap so it doesn't pinch the wicks for better juice flow. Or just cut the silicone cap down to where it just barely touches the wicks. Do not over cut/notch as you don't want open holes above wicks. I have done this to most of my items with silicone caps . Keeps from have to hold it upside down from time to time.
