    Surely the best way is to sit a hoyseplany in a bucket of fiktered or rain water, for at keast 15 minutes to allow the doil to deaw the water up by osmosis. This reduces leaching nd ensures all tbe soil us wet. Sincebive fone this my hiuseplanrs have been much healthier.

    I my opinion the most important info was not included.  For most plants rain water is best.  Well water can be OK but then again it may be too hard.  Some plants don't like hard (high PH) water.  If you have to use city water you need to let it sit overnight to let the chemicals used settle out or evaporate into the air.  In areas where roads are salted the salt gets into city water supplies during thaws.  Not good for plants.  Cold water will shock plants so make sure it is close to air temperature.  Keep your plants in overflow trays.  When you water, the tray will catch the flow through and then suck back up into the dry soil.  Some plants appreciate that you water not from the top but into the tray to be soaked up until you just see moisture on the surface.  You should never leave excess water in the overflow tray.  Most plants don't tolerate wet feet for long.

    Nice explanation.If u water leaves especially in evening in not so evaporating environment the plant may catch fungal infection.

    I like hydroponics - deep water culture. Plant waters itself. I don't worry myself about how to water a plant any more.

    All my potted plants require a full submersion and soaking in water to actually get wet. Time after time I've seen the soil dry as can be after a rain. All the water seems to run down the sides of the pot on the inside. Very frustrating- so much so that I basically gave up (they're my moms plants) It's way too much work

    in my experience, having the proper soil, using flood irrigation and capillary action works 100x better than drowning your plants and pulling them out of the pot to check...especially when dealing with plants with an un-established root system. Please Ignore this video if you want your plants to live. Not all plants are meant to thrive in a swamp.

    Most people nowadays know how to water pot-bound plants. This is such outdated information - and who's the idiot who posted this anyway???...(the woman is talking as if we're stupid retards). First of all, your grammar is inadequate and how you associate people's mouths with plant roots doesn't really relate (I mean, does a root have a "hole" like a mouth does???), I don't think so👎.

    I have to water my plants everyday, I also have to water my neighbors, sometimes, they need a ride to the store, to get food and meds. It is basically the same thing. My plants give me gifts sometimes like fruit. Sometimes a neighbor may give me a few dollars, sometimes not.
