I have read on one site to water until the water runs out the bottom of pot. Another site says to water two cups of water each week. Please advise me which watering plan should I use. Also what kind of water should I use. I have hear/read to not use tap water because it has chemicals in it so I use Spring water and distilled waster. a Claire Akin July 20, 2018 at 11:43 am - Reply Thanks for your question. Both watering methods will work. Typically, the one cup method works best for beginners who may be prone to overwatering. You should avoid using tap water if you have a water softener, as the salts can damage your plant. If not, regular tap water is fine. Best of luck!

Currently I use my moisture meter weekly and water two cups of Spring water with my fertilizer in it. Does this method change when it is brought inside? Claire Akin August 28, 2018 at 9:53 am - Reply Great question – your plant will need less water in the winter and because it will get less sun. Keep using your moisture meter, but you may need to go down to 1 cup per week. Good luck!
