Watering Container Plants: Everything You Need to Know | ????????

When it comes to houseplants and container gardening, the most common questions I get ALWAYS revolve around watering:

- How much water do my plants need?
- How often should I water?
- Am I overwatering?

I decided to put this video out to give you a watering framework so you understand how all of the different variables in your environment affect your watering schedule. From air, light, pot type, soil mix, and even specific plants...it all affects how much you should water.

Hopefully this guide helps you learn how to solve your watering problems in the garden. I also include a self watering system you can insert into the bottom of your plant pots to convert any pot into a self-watering pot.

Best Self Watering Pot Design I've Seen Yet!

If you're a subscriber, you'll know I put a video out already about making a self watering pot. Well, a reader sent me some 5 gallon bucket inserts he made and I have to say...the design is super smart!

These remove the need for a wicking material, because the soil cups built into the plate act both as supports for the water chamber as well as the area water flows into the soil and starts to wick upward via capillary action.

I compare and contrast my design with Fred of 5 Gallon Farm's design in this video, as well as show you how I'm going to plant this one out with a bunch of basil!

If you want to make a DIY self watering container, I suggest checking out my other video, linked in the top right corner of this one.
