In order to grow, plants need water. This isn’t a problem for people who live in cities and the countryside, where there is a lot of water. However, if you live in a green shack, the water is liquid gold. In many cases it is hard to find clean, drinking water. The situation is even more severe if you need water for your plants. Plants in a vertical garden are grown for food, so the water is even more important to them than for flowers and plants that doesn’t provide food.
If you watering plants in your vertical garden too much, they will die. This happens when roots are surrounded with water, so it cannot absorb oxygen. Many people believe that if they provide more water to plants, they will grow faster. In fact, you can kill them.
Plants that don’t get enough water can also die. There are some desert plants that need very little water, but they don’t grow food, so you shouldn’t use them in a vertical garden.
The best way of watering your plants is to pour water until it starts to come out from the ground. Another solution you can use is to use plastic bottles. All you need to do is to drill several holes (small holes) and bury the bottle in the ground. It will release a small amount of water so plants can absorb it without a problem. If you want to use this tip, make sure that you don’t damage the roots of plants. Remember that plants with bigger leaves require more water. On the other side, plants with small leaves don’t require a lot of water.
