Don’t know what to do

The 2 plants in clay pots are dry. I keep it around a 1-2 on the flowering taper tier. The long planter got very wet three weeks ago and still has not dried out When the sun is out I leave them directly in the sun but if it’s pouring I bring them in my house near a semi light window Please help me what am I doing wrong or what should I get Thank you Sharon Axelrod Sharon1a@aol.com

The best thing to do would be to drill out holes in the bottom of the planter to allow for water to leave it faster. Good drainage is the only way here. I would also recommend using succulent soil, as it will dry out much faster. This soil will be a little too heavy for their requirements, although they will do just fine, as long as you can keep the moisture away.
