Water

Why plants need water

Water is an essential component of the photosynthesis process (how plants make food). Water combined with CO2 and energy from light is converted into glucose. But it is critical to get the amount right. With too little water, your plant won’t be able to make enough energy, and with too much, it could drown.

How to get it right

If you follow this guide you will become a pro at watering your plants in no time! In addition all of our product pages tell you how much water your specific plant likes.

The Finger Dip Test:

The best way to check if your plant needs water is to use the finger dip test as above. Push your finger into the soil up to your second knuckle. If the soil is moist it will stick to your finger and your plant is okay on the water front. If the soil is dry your finger will come out clean and it is time to water!

There are different methods to water your plant:

What type of water to give your plants

If possible it is best to give your plants rainwater, filtered water or distilled / demineralised water.

Water from our taps contains chemicals such as pesticides, chlorine and fluoride - which can be harmful to plants.

Additionally, hard water can damage roots and can also cause a white crust that you can see on leaves, soil and pots.
