Knowing when to water and how much to water your plants is very important to their well being. To check the soil of your plant put a spade into the soil near your plant about 6 to 12 inches deep and pull it back. If the soil is moist you don’t need to water it, if it’s dry the plant needs water. Focus on watering the root zone and try to not get too much water on the leaves and foliage, especially if it’s an outside plant and it gets hot and the sun can burn the leaves more easily if they are wet. Mulch any plant that you can. This will help the soil stay moist. Be careful not to over water your plants. The soil needs to be moist not soggy otherwise it will promote mold, mildew, and disease. Lastly, try to water plants either early in the morning or after dark so that the plant can absorb the water before the sun can evaporate it.
