essentials for indoor plants Be Water Wise If anything were likely to be killed with kindness, it would be an indoor plant. Knowing how much and how often to water is the key to not only keeping plants alive but helping them thrive. A great indicator that a plant needs watering is when its leaves start to droop. Oddly, this is also an indication that a plant has been overwatered. Once a plant has root rot from overwatering, it can be very difficult for it to recover. For most plants, the soil should be kept moist but not saturated — use your finger as a guide; if it feels dry an inch or so down, give it a drink. Where and how your plants grow in the wild are great indicators of how much water they need. The pots shown here are good examples, as the dry-, hot-climate plants on the left are grouped together and need much less water than the rain forest tree fern on the right.
