Typically, once-a-week watering will suffice, but they may require more frequent watering when the weather is hot and dry or when the plant is experiencing rapid growth or fruiting. Succulents like it when soil approaches dry before being watered. During dry times, you can water small pots about once a week and large pots about every two weeks. Here is a list of indoor plants and how often you can water them.
Succulents plants adapted to survive in harsh environments and long periods with very little water. Most of these plants hail from warm, arid climates and depend on good air circulation to breathe. Succulents like it when soil approaches dry before being watered. You can water them in 10 – 15 days.
2. Rubber Plant
Rubber trees, formally ficus elastica, can be enjoyed as either medium-sized house plants or beautiful indoor trees. Plants that start younger when you buy them adapt better to indoor living than starting with a more mature plant. Rubber plants don’t like to sit in water, so a well-draining soil is important. You can water them in 5 – 10 days.
3. Peace Lily
Peace lilies are one of the most common houseplants because they’re easy to grow and adds beauty to a boring corner. They can be grown in water; they are often sold in vases without any soil. Ideally, the base of the plant should be suspended above the water line, either by a specially-made insert or a layer of small stones. This allows the roots to grow into the water, but keeps the base of the plant and its leaves from being constantly wet, which can cause rot. Keep the soil moist, but do not overwater. Peace lilies can tolerate short periods of dry soil, but their leaves will start to brown if neglected for too long. You can water them in 10 – 15 days.
4. Parlor Palm
Parlor Palm prefers areas with high humidity. The soil around a Parlor Palm should be evenly moist. Water freely during the growing season but reduce the frequency of watering during the winter. Make sure that the soil remains moist but well drained.
5. Fiddle Leaf Fig
Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees prefer to dry out slightly between waterings, and while they take a good deal of water to keep healthy, soggy soil will drown the plant. If your leaves start to brown and fall and the soil is moist, let the plant dry out until the soil becomes completely dry.
