How to water a Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are one of the most popular indoor potted plants for Easter.  Hydrangeas are water hogs!!  They need water and depending on the size of pot, size of plant, amount of light and the amount of air flow in your home some hydrangreas require watering up to 2-3 times per week.  

 

Tips:

  1. If your hydrangea is droopy or flopping over, check to see if the soil is dry by placing your finger into the soil, if moist do not water and check the base of the pot covering the grower pot to insure water isn't pooling.  Sometimes a plant could be droopy because of too much water. 
  2. Water by removing the pot from the covering and placing in a sink full of water or in a tub full of water. 
  3. Bubbles will appear, wait until all bubbles stop.  Bubbles indicate soil moisture once they are gone your plant is watered.  
  4. Place in a bright room but not in direct sun!
  5. Enjoy.
