Do plants only drink as much water as they need?

I have heard that if you have a plant in a self-watering pot, it will only drink as much water as it needs. Is this true? Am I safe if I make sure there is always water in it?

I do not have experience with using a self watering pot, but I have read that they usually do a good job at keeping the plant watered. Just make sure to read reviews before buying one! I am not sure if they are all made the same or not.

I have had good and bad experiences with self watering pots, the cheapest one I bought surprisingly worked the best
