We recommend sticking your finger a couple of inches deep into the potting soil; if it is dry, it is time to water. If your plant has droopy leaves, this could mean it is getting too much or not enough water. Try holding off on watering first instead of possibly overwatering your plant. If you overwater them, it could lead to root rot disease and damage the entire root system.
