Have you ever had one of those plants that wilts no matter how many time you water it? Is the soil always wet but the plant never perks up? Chances are your plant wasn’t as thirsty as you thought.
Everyone knows plants get water from the soil by using their roots but when the soil stays wet for too long the roots die off and when the roots die off the plant can’t take up water and if the plant can’t take up water IT WILTS!
So, you’re plant doesn’t have any roots. Now what?
First, place it in a shady spot and stop watering it. Then allow it to dry out so that the top inch of soil is bone dry. When you do water, make sure to water until it flows out the bottom and wait for it to dry before watering it again. This will refresh the soil with oxygen and clean water to help new roots grow.
