And not a drop to drink! But your plants are thirsty and we know to water only when they need it.

So how do you know when they need watering?

Look at your plants. Feel their leaves. Most plants, like people, are about 90 percent water. There can be changes in a leaf’s glossy surface, and subtle changes in leaf color and the height that they’re held. Are you seeing a drooping? Dehydration is setting in.

Water is necessary to carry on the plant’s vital functions of photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration.
