How much water is too much?

Janet Pizaro on Jun 06, 2017Water when the plant feels dry to the touch .When it has come out the drainage holes that is enough water.Do not allow plants to sit in water. If you have succulents they require very little water. Thicker leaved plants like a snake plant retain there moisture through the leaves so very little water would be needed.Helpful Reply
Dfm on Jun 06, 2017it's actually a rule of the finger tips.....most indoor plants i water when i can stick my index finger into soil and feel no dampness when the top of the soil hits my second knuckle. outdoor plants- the same. the exception is the cactus group and aloe plants. those plants store water in their leaves. a friend grows cacti - he waters the cacti when it rains in Arizona. that's when the aloe gets a drink.out door container plants need good drainage at the base of their container. even the self watering planters have an over flow outlet.in ground planting- usually mother nature takes care of the watering. if your plants are looking stressed....droopy leaves- water. leaves turning yellow-a bit too much water. crunchy leaves start over. in my area tomato plants will need about an inch of water per week from mother nature.Helpful Reply
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Jun 06, 2017Stick your finger in the pot at least 2 inches down. If damp, plant is ok, wait for a day or two, if dry, water. Once you have done this a few times, you will get the hang of it.Helpful Reply
