As drought and water stress is experienced all around the world, even plants are affected by the water shortage and in some places, even the abundance of water wherever it may be so fortunate.
While it’s not only the quantity of water that matters, water quality is just as important and one such factor that can not be ignored, even when it comes to plants and trees.
The importance of plants in an ecosystem or even those you have in your home is often neglected when it comes to the conservation and sustainability of water. While this seems to be the case in many places facing drought, we should still consider doing everything we can, even if it’s just by a little, to look after our plants.
How much water is enough water?
A question that needs an answer. It’s quite simple but difficult to research as there is not much emphasis placed on plants, nor their importance.
The truth? Plants need much less water than you might think. If you take flowers, for instance, only half a gallon of water is required within the period of 40 days which is a lot less than most people think plants need. This amount of water is adequate to sustain and furthermore, allow for optimal growth of these, or any other small plant.
While there are many factors to consider when planting a plant such as where you plant it, what type of soil will sustain it and allow for it to grow and thrive, as well as the pesticides that the plant is prone to and the many methods to prevent it from dying, the amount of water it requires might be one of its most important factors and one such that is the most important for it to survive.
