How do I know if my plant is thirsty?

Because they can suffer more from overwatering than thirst, your houseplants need strict watering. Aside from succulents and cacti, those are the exceptions to the rule. Keep in mind that your green plants generally all have the same water needs.

But how do you know when they really need water?

You can already rely on the leaves of your plant. If the leaves look limp and tired, you notice that your plant’s stem is brown. This means that your plant is soggy.

You can also plant a finger in the pot (about the depth of a knuckle). If you also feel that the ground is too wet there, there is no doubt and confirm that there is too much water.

In this case it is necessary to allow the substrate to dry. Indeed, it is necessary at all costs to avoid soaking the roots in water.
