Watering Tips for your Garden
“How often should I water my plants?”
This is one of the most common questions asked among gardeners especially for those who are starting their first garden. As we all know, water is very important for plants in order for them to grow healthy and well and it is essential that you water your plants adequately. To help you, we will be looking at useful and simple watering tips that you may follow to keep your plants happy and healthy.
First of all when it comes to knowing how much to water your plant, you need to consider the type of plant that you have as each type of plant may have specific water requirements in order for it to grow faster and healthier. For most plants they need to be watered moderately as to much or too little can hurt the plant.
It is also important to remember that you should not drown your plants with too much water. Just like we mentioned earlier, most plants will survive best with moderate water. If you regularly drown your plants with water, the tendency is that they will die. Over watering can drown the roots preventing the plant to get the oxygen that
it needs to grow right.
Aside from watering your plants, you should also not forget the importance of proper lighting. As we all know, this is not a problem if you have an outdoor garden as the sun can provide you with that light you need. If you are into indoor gardening, you should invest in an artificial light source such as LED grow lights.
Another important thing that you should not forget is to keep the temperature in the room ideal for your plants if you have an indoor garden. You should remember that the higher the temperature, the more water is needed for your plants. This is especially true during the winter months when the heating system is usually turned on in your indoor garden. During this time, your indoor plants will need more water because the heat from the heating
system can dry the air that is not ideal for plants.
For indoor plants, there is actually no need to water the leaves unless of course if you are trying to get
rid of pests and other insects. Focus on the soil to keep the whole plant healthy when watering them.
These are just some of the tips that you may follow when it comes to watering your plants. As you may know by
now, it is all about knowing the specific needs of your plants to make sure they are getting the right amount.
