Q.How Should I Water A Wandering Jew Plant?

Zone 97227 | kbowens68 added on May 21, 2020 | Answered

In the care guide on the website it says do not water directly into the crown of the wandering jew plant, because it will cause unsightly rot. But you don’t explain how it should be watered. Please explain. Thanks!

Just water the ground around the plant. Do not put water directly on the plant, its stem, or its crown, if you can help it.

Really, though. These plants should not need supplemented water, unless you live in a desert area. They are very, very drought tolerant, and can become very invasive when they get watered and fed.

In short, you shouldn't need to water. It will be the last plant to show any signs of drought. In fact, you can even wait until they start to go limp to water.
