When is the best time to water your houseplants in the summer?

During the summer and high temperatures, the plants that beautify our homes require special care. There is an opinion among gardeners that plants should be watered more abundantly and less often during the summer, not too little and too often.

Whether your plants are annuals or perennials, try to water them in the morning during high temperatures.

Watering in the morning gives the roots a chance to absorb water better and offers your plants enough moisture to get through the day without additional stress. If you don't have time in the morning, it is perfectly acceptable to water the plants in the evening. Then just make sure you water directly into the root zone and not the leaves.

When it comes to perennials, they have a deeper root system that allows them to survive periods of drought from one season to the next.

Also, plants absorb water through the roots, not the leaves, so you don't have to waste water on leaves that look dry.
