How to know if you're over watering your indoor plants?

17th January 2021
"Overwatering a plant is as harmful as under-watering it."

Growing a plant should be done very cautiously. A small mistake can lead to wilting and death of the plant. Everything you provide your plant must be just enough i.e. neither too less nor too much. Too much fertilizer or water can harm the plant. Let's get to know how you can realize if you're overwatering your indoor plants

--GoogleAdsReviews-- 

Root rotting

When you water a plant, the soil should pass that water to the plant’s roots to maintain health. If the soil isn’t in the right state to do this, then that doesn’t happen. For instance, there’s too much water in the soil and it becomes waterlogged. And the roots rot leading to disturbance in the distribution of water in different parts of the plant. 

Leaves yellowing

As you overwater your plants, your plants suffer from moisture stress which leads to the yellowing of plants. Normally, most of the leaves of indoor plants are greeny with a slight hint of yellowish-green but never actually yellow. And, if they start to turn yellow, know that you are overwatering your plants. 

Leaves browning

Not only do leaves turn brown due to moisture stress, but they may also turn brown because of it. Browning of leaves either is caused because of lack of moisture or because of excessive moisture. Sometimes it's just the tip of the leaves that go brown whilst sometimes it's the entire leaves that go brown. 

Wilting

If your plant is all wilted and looks sad and depressed, realize that your plant has been overwatered. 

Stunted slow growth

You probably are aware of the growth speed of your indoor plants. But, if you notice some unusual changes in the time of the growth. Or, if the plant grows slower than usual, and has few yellow leaves, then it's probably because of overwatering. 

Edema

Edema is a sort of disease for your plant's roots. It is caused by excessive watering of your plants. If your roots get too much water, they cannot pass the water to the leaves nor can they use it in any other meaningful way. The pressure of water in the roots and leaves intensifies leading to an explosion of cells and the death of the plant. So, be careful not to kill your beautiful plant. 

Falling of leaves

As mentioned above, the leaves that change colors may start to fall at an alarming rate. Falling of leaves is also the symptom of slow growth and edema as well. 

Floppiness

You might see some shoots growing out of your plants and you may get all happy and cheerful about it. But, observe the shoots closely. Healthy shoots grow up into a healthy beautiful plants while some shoots may become all floppy and brown.
