YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN CONTROL HOW MUCH WATER YOUR PLANTS GET AND HOW OFTEN

ImageYOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN CONTROL HOW MUCH WATER YOUR PLANTS GET AND HOW OFTEN.  Pretty profound statement, huh?   How many people actually think about this BEFORE they water their interior plants?  “Oh, it’s summer.  They must need more water” or “I give all of my plants a good drink every week.”  Yikes!!  Please think about this, really.  The amount of water a plant needs depends on the type of plant and the light it is receiving.  If a ficus tree is in a south facing window, yes, it may need a “good drink” every week, but move that tree to an east or west light and it may only need water every other week.  If you are unsure about how much water to give a plant, get as far down into the bottom of the pot to see if the roots are wet.  If so, don’t water!  www.insideplants.net
