Q.Watering tête-à-tête daffodils

Zone Durban,KZN, South Africa | indirad8@gmail.com added on May 18, 2017 | Answered

I have been given potted tête-à-tête daffodils and wish to make a success of taking care of them!
The instructions that came with the plants say water , 30 mls ,every 3 days. Is this enough water?
The soil seems still too dry with this amount of water.
Unfortunately, the pot of daffodils fits tightly within a ceramic pot ( without drainage holes)and cannot be taken out.
Please help.
Thank you.

You should probably transplant them. It does not sound like they are able to get adequate water in their present circumstances. The soil should be saturated when watered, then allowed to drain and dry out before the next watering. Growing plants in a pot without drainage holes is not good. This article may help:
