You recently acquired a sage plant and I'm confused on how often you should water it?
How Often to Water Plants--too vague a Q Not every plant is the same, so this question should include the type of plant, its environment, and how long you've had it. if is a normal plant from cities (that grow in cities), if you grow a plant u put water 4 it to grow the next week on the same day… you water it again ... for the usual plants that grows on your house it's probably twice a day that it needs to be watered like morning and in the afternoon when the sun is already setting down. The best way to water with overhead sprinklers is to start in the morning and stop early in the day so that the plants have time to dry off before the cool night temperatures occur.Foliage that remains wet for long periods, especially in cool night air, is vulnerable to attack by disease organisms that require moisture to get established.

This can be a difficult question to answer because I don't know which zone you are in. I am experimenting with upside down tomatoes this year (2007) and I am in zone 7. We have had little rain this year ( i don't think rain matters though because there is such a small area in the top of the bucket, …just like most container gardening you need to water every day) My tomatoes are in 5 gallon paint buckets. I have wave petunias growing in the top. I use a tsp of miracle grow to a gallon of water for each bucket (1 plant tomato plant per bucket) I water each bucket everyday with a 1 gallon solution. Some days I'm lazy and don't add the fertilizer, but the plants never let me get lazy because if they need water they will let me know. Usually by 11:00 am or so when the sun begins to get hot. I have had nice juicy tomatoes since around the 4th of July. I'm growing Better Boys, Lemon Boys and romas. I love growing my tomatoes this way. If you would like more info and pictures you may email me at Lovellc21.net and I will send more info to you. (MORE)
Soak newly planted trees about once every 10 days unless your area receives an inch or more of rain, then that will suffice. too much watering will result in browning of leaves and eventually dropping leaves. The amount of water that a newly planted tree or shrub requires can vary. Unfortunately, no…body can tell you exactly how much or how often you should irrigate without visiting the site to check the soil hydrology. (MORE)
A good general rule of thumb is to ensure that your lawn gets about1 inch of water per week. In a hotter week you may consider doingmore. If you are in a dry/hot climate and want to water your lawn,water before the sun comes up no more than a few times a week.
Cactus' are used to desert conditions with minimal water. If you water too much, you can kill it. The important thing is to look at it and see if it begins to sag or look deflated. The soil should be about 50% sand for quick drainage. Cacti and succulants that are planted in pots should be watered s…paringly about once a week and less if yellowing occurs as pots evaporate more quickly. Each variety and its size and age can change its water requirements. (MORE)
Watering radishes . This depends on temperature, wind and soil type. Sandy soil will dry out faster than clay soils, and windy warm days will mean they need watering more frequently. Mulch will reduce the amount of water evaporating from the soil too. Since radishes are quite shallow rooted, feel… the soil just under the surface to determine if they need to be watered again. (MORE)
Answer . That depends on the area where you live for evapotranspirationrate, the type of soil you have, and its ability to drain. Wateringdeeply but infrequently will force the roots deeper and make theplants better able to handle periods of drought. Keep the soil dampbelow the surface but not soa…ked as too much water will cause rot,and allow the area to partially dry out before applying wateragain. If you have had a particularly hot or windy day you may wantto water, but if it has been calm and overcast, you can probablywait a day or two. (MORE)
It really depends on which type of plant because some need a lot of water and others only a little water because too much will kill them.
if you want it green and soft water it everyday for 20-30 minutes and add fertilizer with weed killer (mixed) a sprinkler system yould make it best
About once a week or when the soil starts to feel dry when you stick your finger in the pot up to your first knuckle.
A cactus should be watered at least once a week. It can be wateredtwo times a week if the soil is very dry.
It depends on what you are referring to, but in general, water when the soil about a half inch underneath is drying out for small plants.
It depends on the plant, and whether it's inside or outside (and in what weather). Some plants need a little water daily, some twice a week, some weekly and some even less than that. The biggest problem is generally over- watering, not under-watering. Plants will wilt when they don't get enough wat…er, but too much water gives most leaves a drier-out tip and does serious damage.

Often enough for the soil to be moist but not soggy all the time. One cup a day works for me.
The amount of water indoor plants get varies. You can check thesoil your plant is potted in to determine whether it needs water.
Achillea millefolium and Achillea ptarmica are plants from the samegenus. However, they are of different species. They are closelyrelated and share many similarities, but they are not the sameplant.
It depends on the plant but water them in the morning or evening so it evaporates slower
I recently planted a purple leaf plum tree. Now it looks like it's dying. I wonder if I'm giving it too much water or too little. What do you think?
Hopefully, you bought it from a reputable nursery--was it severely root bound when you removed it from its pot? Give it some time to recover from being planted. Usually, you would water it every day for the first week and then weekly for several weeks to help it get established. You wouldn't fertili…ze it. If it dies, the receipt and the return of the tree would usually get you a refund. (MORE)
It needs filtered / dappled sun at the absolute minimum, and is really best suited for full sun in a south window.. Water when, and *only when*, the soil is dry halfway down the depth of the pot. Too much more than that and you're just asking for the roots to rot.. (from GardenWeb site)
Tomato plants that are planted in the garden should have a minimum of 1" of water per week. If the plant is growing in a container it should have at least 1 gallon of water per day.
Peace Lily plants need a lot of water, but it lets you know when it is "thirsty". It will usually start to sag when it needs to be watered.. To avoid overwatering (which will kill it!!), ensure the soil is dry (by touch) before you water it again.
Just how often a pumpkin plant needs to be watered depends on the state of the soil. The owner of the plant should judge the soil before watering; if it seems already very moist, watering should be kept to a minimum. In general, however, pumpkin plants should be watered every two days. Watering ev…ery day can over-soak the soil, leading to disease. . (MORE)

I just planted a cabbage plant and I've been watering it 1-2 times a day with two glasses of water. I have read that you only are supposed to water it once a week, but after two days of not watering it, it became really wilted and looked like it would die. I'd stick to once a day if it is planted ou…tside. Good luck! (MORE)
it really depends on the state or location your in, if its extreamly hot all year then water every other day, if its mild all year water once a week, if its cold then water everyother week
you should water your girls every other day give it justenough water so that the water doesn't seep through your pot. ^ this answer ... eh. you have to water your plant til the water actually seeps through all the dirt. Mary Jane plants love being watered, so don't ever worry about over-watering t…hem. but yes, water them about every other day. and also, have a fan running on them [ if they are inside ] because unlike the weed that is grown outside, it doesn't get any wind. so when you water them, spray the leaves with some water too, just a spritz. so that it gets some sort of " rain effect ".

Everyday in the morning. 7am or 8am. (MORE)
That entirely depends on the plant. Some plants have adapted to grow in wetlands and need to have their roots constantly submerged in water. Succulents (cacti) may prefer to go weeks without water. Then there is an entire range of water needs in between. A good nursery should have information for… your particular plants. Failing that, many colleges and universities have horticulture programs that could give you terrific information that is well suited, not only to your plants, but also in consideration of your local climate.

hibiscus need water everyday. it is a tropical that loves water just make sure you do not let it sit in water for a long peirod of time
Depends on how much rain you are getting. An inch of water a week should suffice, including rainwater.
\nDepending upon the type of grass, and the weather in your area. For example in hot Central Texas, for St. Augustine we water our grass twice a week. We try to make sure that it gets at least 1.5" a week.\n. \nAlso, it is important to watch the leaves of your grass. If they are folding or curli…ng up, they are short of water. Water them the next morning.\n. \nYou can place used soup cans in various places on your grass to measure how many inches of water is your grass getting.\n. \nPlease also be mindful of the compaction and slope of your soil. If it is compacted and slopy, then water is very gradually so the water can seep down deep, in order to get deep root growth. (MORE)
First, ensure that the soil has the correct PH - before planting in any garden it is a great idea to send a soil sample off to test - I was shocked to see how high my phosphorus content was when I had mine tested and had to amend my foliage with an iron spray. . Azaleas actually tolerate wet (not t…oo wet) soil - they "like their feet wet". Depending on your soil, clay or sandy, will help determine the amount you water. The absolute best method is sticking your finger into the soil a few inches away from the root of the plant to test for moisture. Do not overfeed azaleas - maybe once in the spring to encourage more blooms, but not to excess. . I watered my newly planted azaleas every 3 days - watered the hole that was dug really well, planted the plant, watered again really well and then again after 3 days - but sometimes 4 days - again, using the moisture test with my finger. . Hope this helps you! (MORE)
You should water them 2 times a day. once in the morning, and then again in the afternoon, around the time the sun sets.
Instead of talking to him try talking to his friends. If he keeps mentioning you to them then he likes you if not then i don't think he does. Also if he keeps looking at you in classes that s a great sign
A plant acquires water from precipitation (specifically rain), runoff, or moving water bodies. Carbon dioxide is ever-present in the atmosphere. Plants simply absorb it from the air around them.
Daffodils are a bulb and bulbs are good at storing their own water reserves. You shouldn't over water them. Water your little pot with about 1/2 cup of water every 4 or 5 days (or whenever the soil goes dry to the touch). Bulbs are also almost completely oblivious to having more soil around them... …they can grow out of practically no soil so repotting isn't entirely necessary and certainly not for this season. Keep them near a window and cool. Don't loose sight of the fact that daffodils are an early spring flower and do not bloom for very long (maybe 3 weeks at most). The cooler you can keep them the longer they will last. 45-60F (8-14C) is pretty ideal temperatures. Repot them to be outside in a container or garden and overplant them with something else for the summer leaving the bulbs dormant in the soil. They'll pop up year after year in the early spring. Once the flower dries up and gets crusty on the top of the stem, "dead-head" the stems by snapping the dead flowers off... this will stop the bulb from transferring nutrients and energy into the seed-head and will keep that energy in the bulb where it will go into splitting the bulb into multiple bulbs (and you'll see more rapid multiplication).

Watering poinsettia plants Keep plant moist but not soaking wet. When you water let the water drain out of the pot completely not allowing the plant to sit in water. You may need to water daily in warmer weather.
Fresh water should always be available, especially at meal time. If a puppy you may want to take water away after 7 or 8pm so they arent waking up at night.
Two times a day in summer. one time a day in winter. And in rainy reason when there is gap of rain. As and when required
You need to talk to someone who knows you. Not ask strangers on the internet. Although, if you're calling a girl whom you've never met 'your girlfriend' that may prove to be challenging.
Lettuces are mostly made up of water, so watering them is VERY important, but they also hold water for a while, so watering them about once or twice a month(if they are looking dry, this is not what it seems, unless they grow little seedy like bits on the ends of a stalk) You would be surprised ho…w much water lettuces seem to hold even if you don't water them regularly! Oh and also don't overwater, it can ruin the growth process! I hoped I could help you! (MORE)
What should i do if my boyfriend is not up to my standard but yet i love him but I'm confused of being with him?
lower your freking standards then! And i highly doubt that you are truly in love
only let the top 1/2 or 1 inch of soil get dry and make sure the soil will drain well and not hold water.
It depends on where you are ! If you are in the midwest, nature will take care of things. Most farmers in the mid west do not irrigate, rainfall is adequate. Vegetables grown in their native land are usually resistant to normal weather patterns in their environment. Growing vegetables where they a…ren't naturally found, means just keeping an eye on them and watering when there has been no rain. Some vegetables need more water than others. ( I avoid growing celery and cucumbers, since they require more water than most, when I am in Colorado. But in the mid west, they grow just fine. ) In any event . . . If it hasn't rained in a week, I will water my garden for about 90 minutes. ( This also depends on the water flow and the kind of sprinkling system you have. ) Poke your finger in the soil after watering. If the ground is dry 1/2 an inch below the surface, you need to water more. If it puddles between rows, chances are you need to cultivate ( stir up the soil ) so that air and water can get to the roots easier. There are a lot of factors . . . it SOUNDS complicated, but once you get the feel of it, you will be a pro in no time at all. If the plants are wilty looking .. . Water them ! Also . . . avoid watering in the heat of the day ( 10 to 4 o'clock ). Morning watering be best, or early evening. Good luck ! (MORE)
In vascular plants they use xylem and phloem to transport water and nutrients from the root system and the leaves. Water, being polar, is moved along by magnetism. Other nutrients move with their concentration gra dient.
It should be watered according to the species that the tree is. Generally you shouldn't let your tree dry out but also shoudn't let it sit in a pool of water.
An orchid should be watered every 2 weeks. To water an orchid you must place the orchid in a bowl of water and leave for an hour and a half, after this time any remaining water should be poured away.
They need a lot of water whilst they are growing, keep the soil moist. I have heard of a rule that says 'one inch per bulb per week'
If they are outside.. then never the rain will suffice just fine If inside atleast once every two days
They would not be able to preform photosynthesis efficiently. Water is split to replace electrons raised to a higher energy level from the chlorophyll pigment as it gives it's electrons on to photo system II. Water replaces these electrons by being split. Without enough water this process, which mak…es glucose for the plant to build and use for energy, would be slowed considerably. (MORE)
