February: Watering Your Houseplants

Check the soil before you water your indoor plants.  Stick your finger into the soil to a depth of about 2 cm.  If it feels dry, water it.  It is better to give your indoor plant a thorough soaking once a week rather than a little bit every day or two.    After about 20 minutes, pour excess water out of the saucer or container in which your indoor plant is sitting.
