Watering Instructions

General Watering Instructions

1. Water when the top 3” of soil is dry. During hot weather, water every 1-2 days; during cooler weather, water 1-2 times per week.

2. Water soil so that it is evenly moist.

3. Let water soak through, and then repeat if necessary.

4. If you are having doubts on whether or not to water, stick your index finger as deep as possible into the soil. If the soil feels moist, do not water.


As much as possible, keep water off of the foliage and try to water the base of the plant only; wet foliage is a perfect place for fungus to grow. Also, the #1 killer of plants is over watering, so please be careful.
