6 Golden Rules for Watering Houseplants

1. warm water

Water your plant with warm or tepid water, which is easily absorbed in the soil and allows your plant to grow.

The more soil there is in a pot, the less water a plant needs.

2. Large pots, less water

Plants situated in a window will need water much more frequently than those that only get sun for a few hours a day

3. Brighter light, more water

Give your plant water from the base of the plant, pouring directly into the soil.

4. Avoid watering leaves

Water your plants with filtered or bottled water whenever possible.

5. Avoid tap water

Check your plant daily; water only if it shows signs of thirst.

6. Wait for a watering sign
