I now have a number of thriving houseplants

and the simple reason is this:

instead of watering them in situ

(when water is likely to accumulate at the bottom

of the decorative pot )

I now put them in the sink

(you could use the bath),

give them a good drink,

and when the water has stopped draining out of the pot,

then I put them back in it the outer pots

and return then to their spot in our house.

Heavy pots are a problem:

my solution is to water them little and often

so the water still doesn't accumulate.


Majority of plants

(especially house plants)

don't appreciate sitting in water.
