Question: Do I need to water my plant every day?

 
Answer: No houseplant should be watered daily. Even plants that like their potting mix kept moist will get too soggy and develop root rot if watered daily.

Remember, if the potting mix is damp to the touch, it definitely doesn’t need more water!


If the potting mix has dried out within 24 hours, this almost always means your plant is either severely root bound, or the potting mix is too old to retain water, or both, and it’s time to repot!
