Q.Overwatering House Plants

Zone Hanover, MA 02339 | billb added on October 24, 2020 | Answered

I’m starting to bring in some of my large container plants and it’s really difficult to tell when they need water. I killed off several plants last year with too much water. So, is there some type of widget I can use? Thanks

Yes, you can buy a moisture meter which takes the guesswork out of watering. They are available in garden centers and big box stores.
