I have 1 spider plant. 1 jade. a pot of basil and a hanging moss. When I started, I was watering the spider every day, the basil too and the jade,hanging moss once a week. Listen, the jade lost most of the leaves, the hanging moss lost all of it's leaves the basil withered into nothing and the spider just stopped growing
. Keep in mind that in Orlando, we've had 100 degree weather for 2 months. I was on the verge of tears. I didn't know what to do.
My gardening mentor and friend Tori told me that I was watering way tooooo much. When in doubt, it is better to underwater than to overwater. You will kill your plants faster than anything else by too much watering.
So, I cut back on the jade and the hanging moss (which are succulents
related) I cut back to once (1) a month, a good soaking and the Basil/spider plant to 1 light watering a week and BOOM!!!! They ALL busted out like gangbusters.(btw. I have a soaker hose on my COnfederate Jasmine outside and I water them for about 5 minutes three times a week) I would never leave soaker hose on overnight...never.ever. ever. Making sure that the soil/plant is completely dry b4 u water them again is paramount. Too wet and staying wet without drying is inviting disaster. Anyhoo, that's my story and my advice to you. The advice is free so it can be taken or left. Good luck to you and let me know how it goes for u.
