    It depends on the plant. Some doesn't need much water than few drops, and some need to be feet in water... Generally, when you touch the ground and feel it herd like a crust on the top, it's time to guive water. This is not true for suculent plants which need dry ground with only few drops of water otherwise it will die with too much water.

    My rule of them: yellow leaves mean too much water, brown leaves mean not enough water. I try to keep "like" plants with similar water needs together. Good luck!

    If the plant looks like it is drying up, it probably is. If the leaves are turning yellow, good chance you've given too much water. Generally, you want the soil to be moist but not damp.

    I have a device that I bought at Walmart that I stick into the soil and it measures moisture, showing a read-out of whether or not the plant needs watering or not. Very useful.
