watering outdoor pot plants
I have garvinea pot plants. How much do I water them to keep them moist?

Water as the soil begins to feel dry to the touch. This is likely daily in the warm summer weather, and even twice a day when the temperatures are above 80 degrees.
Water so the entire root system is wet, but excess water drains away. Avoid watering down into the crown of the plant. You can set the pot in a tray of water and allow the soil to take up water from the bottom.
