How To Water Green Plants

Estimated Time: 30min

Difficulty: easy


The best way to make your plants happy is to create similar conditions to those in their natural habitat. The good news is that you don’t need a rainforest for this!

Our tip: Cold water can damage the roots. Therefore, do something good for your plant and give it some at room temperature! The best water is rainwater or tap water that has stood overnight and thus has a lower pH value.

What You Need


Step 1/4

Stick a finger 2 to 3 cm into the soil and water only when the soil feels dry.


Step 2/4

To allow excess water to drain away, it is important that the pot has a drainage hole at the bottom.

Step 3/4

Pour the water onto the substrate of the plant. For uniform growth, you should do this evenly and generously until it is completely absorbed into the substrate and runs out of the drainage hole at the bottom.


Step 4/4

After 30 minutes, check the saucer of your plant and tip away the excess water to avoid waterlogging. Use a rag to wipe up any remaining water. Done!
