Do plants need drainage?

  1. I am about 2 weeks into veg and have never put any sorta drainage holes into my pots. I water only as needed in minimal amounts so there is really never any noticeable sitting water. Should i add some holes into the pot? I heard root rot could be an issue but i don't keep the soil as moist.
     
  2. YES THEY NEED TO DRAIN..make holes asap ..change that water in there before it logs your roots and droops tour plant.

  3. Unless you're growing swamp plants, they want drainage holes. Even if you don't think it's a problem, it's not going to hurt anything if you're right, and it might save you if you're wrong.

  4. Yes you need really good drainage where if you filled the pot with water it would drain out 10-30% this should be a no brainier all plants need some drainage homie

  5. Yes is the only answer. You do need drainage. There are many varying answers to many questions but on this there's only one. If there's no drainage water will collect at the bottom of the pots and it WILL rot your roots. Your plants might seem fine for now and the top, even the top half, of your soil might seem, even read, dry. But it won't be. Make holes in the bottom of your pits ASAP!

  6. Yes, you definitely need some drainage. I would poke holes in them right away!

  7. I drilled a hundred holes in my buckets. Bottom and sides. That way my roots get more oxygen and will never drown.
