Amount of water for plants - 1 tablespoon (15 ml) a day



How much water do plants need a day?
How often do I need to water plants?


Plant Height                            Amount of Water per day                                    
Up to 6 inches   -------------      1 tablespoon or 15 ml
6-12 inches   -----------------      2 tablespoons or 30 ml
12-18 inches  ----------------      3 tablespoons or 45 ml
18-24 inches  ----------------      4 tablespoons or 60 ml
every 6 inch increase in height --- add 1 tablespoon


Rule of Thumb:
amount of water for plants --- 1 tablespoon ( 15 ml ) a day


Example: 
Given a plant that is 3 inches high,
If your watering period frequency is every 3 days: 
1 tables spoon/day  x  3 days
3 table spoons every 3 days  ----- amount of water needed
