How to water houseplants:
1. Don’t kill your plant with kindness; overwatering is one of the number one killers of houseplants.
2. Fill your watering can after each use and let the water reach room temp before you water again or use tepid water from the tap.
3. Water until it pours out of the drainage holes. Let it drain and then dump any excess water.
4. To test soil, insert your finger two inches into the dirt. If it is dry, add water. If moist, wait a few days. For plants that love water, only let the surface dry before watering again.
5. Bad signs: Leaf drop or yellowing leaves means you need to either ease up on the watering or your plant is root bound and needs to be repotted in a larger container. Wilting means it needs water.
