How much water is too much?

  1. some leaves on my plant are yellowing and wilting from the bottom up, and i was jus wonderin if its cuz of overwatering, if not, then ne suggestions?
     
  2. Could be the problem.... Let the pots really dry out, wait a day and then water again. Get a dampness meter for a few bucks and use it to determine the dampness of your soil at all depths. Don't be fooled by the first couple inches of soil being dry, but saturated further down.
     
  3. I go by the weight of the pot. I can tell by weight when it is dry.
     
  4. the plant is outside, how much of a dif does that make?
     
  5. are you leqaving it outside ? ...
     
  6. My pots are too heavy for me to lift wet or dry!!
    But my climate is hot and dry - I water every day.
     
  7. i just skoosh my planty with this lil fan thing that squirts water thru the spinning flaps of the fan, turning into mist...heheh good for those sunny days too :D
