Bean Plants
Q.

Too little water?

Zone 05038 | jojorose8 added on June 27, 2016 | Answered

I have beans planted in large containers. I usually water in the morning. My plants are entirely yellow (stem, leaves and leaf veins). I purchased organic fertilizer 1-3-2 and added, which I think burned the leaves. Last night around 4pm I checked and the soil was dry. Could my plants be under watered?

Yellow leaves are usually a sign of underwatering. When I water any container plants, when the temperature gets very high during the day, I usually give them a good soaking at night instead of in the morning. You could also put a light layer of mulch in the containers to help preserve the moisture. If they still get dry, water only the soil (not the leaves) sometime before noon.
