Your plants just want to live
Friends, I have a simple message for you today: your plants are living things. They require water to live. If you do not give them water, they will die! Seriously.
Now, at this point, you might be asking yourself questions like “but my plant doesn’t look dead” or “are you sure?” And the answer is yes. Your plant will die if it does not get water over time. It’s just a matter of how much time. Your plant could last weeks without watering and still survive if it’s been alive long enough that its roots are deeply planted in the soil so that it can tap into stored water reserves. But your plant has a finite amount of stored water at any given moment in time, and once that store runs out, there is no more water to pull from and your plant will die.
Plants are just like us in this respect: humans need a constant supply of food and water to keep going or else we’ll die too! The same goes for all animals on earth as well as other life forms like some bacteria and single-celled organisms.
If you don’t water your plants, they will die.
As it turns out, plants need water to survive. This information may not be new to you, but it’s worth repeating because this knowledge is crucial to keeping your plants alive.
If you forget to give your plant water, it won’t get enough and will eventually die. If you overwater your plant, it’ll get too much and also die. It’s a bit of a conundrum: If you don’t water your plant correctly, it will die. So how do you know if you’re watering correctly? The answer can be complicated depending on the type of plant in question—some need more water than others—but generally speaking, if your plant seems happy (not droopy or wilting), then its needs are likely being met.
If you do water them, they can bring beauty and happiness into your life.
Watering your plants is easy. Just take a tupperware container and fill it with water. Then, find your plant’s main root stalk, which is the long thing sticking out of the bottom of the planter. Pour some water into this root stalk. Then wait a while, and do it again. Your plants will love you for it!
But what if you don’t have time to water your plants? What if you’re busy at work or need to go on vacation? It takes almost no time to take care of them properly—and they can provide many benefits that are well worth the small amount of effort required to keep them healthy.
Plants can help improve air quality in your home as well as regulate its temperature during summer months (by blocking out heat) and reduce heating costs in winter months (by collecting solar energy from sunlight). They can also produce oxygen to breathe, which has been shown to lower blood pressure and boost concentration. Additionally, studies have shown that keeping potted plants around an office space makes employees happier—a trend that may extend into other areas where people spend their time indoors like restaurants or gyms.
Please water your plants.

In this section, we’ll discuss watering your plants with different methods and how to make sure that your plants are always getting enough water.Plants are living things, just like us. And just like us, they need water to survive.
But what happens when you get busy and forget to water your plants? Sometimes it seems like forgetting to water them is the only thing that will make you remember to do it! Then you rush over to their little pots and douse them with water—and then you go back to your life. But what if there was something else you could do? What if we told you that there’s a better way?
In this blog post, we’ll tell you why you should always keep your plants watered correctly, and how. You’ll learn about how under- or overwatering affects your plant’s health and appearance, and how to prevent it from happening in the first place.
Plants: They’re so cute, right? And they make your space feel cozy, alive. But if you don’t water them, you’re gonna be staring at a bed of dead foliage—or worse, a pile of dust.
What is the best way to care for your plants? Watering them properly is the number one best thing you can do to keep them looking their best! And the worst thing? Not watering them at all—if your plants get too dry, they won’t survive.
But how exactly should you water your plants? It depends on the plant and what kind of soil it’s in. If your plant has been recently transplanted into a new pot or location, you’ll want to make sure to water it carefully, so as not to drown it or shock it by pouring too much water in too quickly. If that happens, the plant will end up stressed out and dehydrated—both of which can lead to irreversible damage!
If your plant is in an older pot or is more established, then it may need less frequent watering. Some plants can even withstand periods of drought before needing a drink again—but most indoor plants are tropical and need regular access to moisture in order to grow properly.
So what can you do
Every plant lover knows that watering your plants properly is essential to their growth and, ultimately, their survival. But as anyone who has ever killed a plant can attest, it’s easy to get into a daily routine where you think you’re giving your plants what they need, but actually aren’t.
That’s why we’ve put together this blog post: a practical guide to making sure that the plants you love are receiving proper water care. We don’t want any of your leaves to turn brown or go crispy, so we’re going to tell you all about how to water your plants and keep them healthy, even if you have a busy schedule.
Step 1: Get on a schedule
Give yourself some time to figure out what your plant’s needs are, and then set up a schedule for watering and get it on your calendar! You can do this in whatever way makes the most sense for you: Make a checklist, use alarms on your phone, or whatever works best for you. The important thing is that once you figure out what the needs of your plant are, you make an effort to stick with them.
Step 2: Invest in good tools
This step is probably the most fun. There are tons of great tools out there for taking care of plants
Plants: you love them, you water them, and sometimes you neglect to do that last part.
But your plants are living things, and if you don’t take care of them properly, they can die. And it’ll happen slowly—they won’t just shrivel up and turn brown in a matter of minutes. They’ll get sicker and sicker, until finally they’re gone (and possibly taking the rest of your garden with them).
So how should you care for your plants? In this blog, we’ll cover some basics of plant watering and maintenance so that your plants can stay healthy and thrive for years to come!
Water is the most important thing your plants need, and it’s something that many people overlook.
If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’ve killed a few plants in your lifetime. Maybe you forgot to water them. Maybe you overwatered them and now they’re all shriveled up. Or maybe you didn’t know that watering a plant is different than watering a garden or lawn, and now you’re scrambling to figure out what went wrong.
Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to tell you why it’s so important to water your plants properly, and how to do it.
You know what they say: if you make your plants happy, they’ll make you happy. Sorry, I mean, sure, science says that houseplants can improve your mood and increase productivity. But I prefer the other way of putting it: with a little love and care (and a lot of water), your plants will be better equipped to take care of you.
Here are some ways that keeping your plants properly watered will help you out:
– Hydrated plants clean the air in your space, making it easier to breathe and reducing the risk of illness or infection from indoor air pollution
– Plants require less watering when they’re placed in the right spot—which means less work for you! When you have healthy plants, you can just forget about them for a while without having to worry about them dying or going into shock
– If you keep your plants well-watered, they’ll be healthier and better able to defend themselves against disease or pests—which means there are fewer problems for you to have to solve
To say that I’m a huge plant person is an understatement. You know the cliché of making a person’s love for their plants sound creepy? Well, I’m living proof that it’s real. My love for my plants is so deep that I can actually feel it in my bones when one of my green babies is parched, and I’ve been known to wake up in cold sweats after having nightmares about accidentally over-watering them.
So you can imagine how horrified I was when, a few weeks ago, I went to water my plants and realized they were already soaked! It was a disaster. Turns out the maintenance guy had been over-watering them because he thought they weren’t getting enough water. The result? Two of my beloved plants had died, and the others were struggling to make it through the night.
I was shattered. But like all good millennials, I went right away to Google in search of answers: How do you save a plant from over-watering?
The first thing I learned was that there’s no way to truly save a plant from over-watering—but there are ways to minimize the damage by draining as much excess water from its roots as possible, then re-potting it with fresh dirt and
