Morning Watering vs Watering at Night

We all know that thirst-quenching feeling we get when we drink a glass of water in the morning. Well, just imagine how nourishing it is to your plants and trees when you water them in the morning!

 

Why plants love being watered in the morning?

1. The water can soak into the soil to reach the roots, which will keep the heat from evaporating it.
2. Because the water gets a chance to soak in and reach the roots, the plants have a steady supply of water throughout the day.
3. The excess water gets a chance to dry off before night and decreases the chances of developing fungus.

 

Why plant should not be watering at night? 

You still may be wondering, is it really that bad of a thing to water your plants and trees at night?

When you water your plants at night, the leaves tend to remain wet for a while since the sun’s heat is not available to evaporate the excess water.

This makes the environment favourable for a fungus to accumulate on your plants because of the extended period of remaining damp.

You should make it a point not to wait after the sun goes down to water your plants — especially if you live in a humid environment. Watering at night only increases the odds of your plants getting infected with fungus.
