    How often do you check your plants?

    How often do you check on your plants?

    I check on mine 2-3 times a day. I do it so many times because i like to check for birds or squirrels. Because this morning i went to go and check on them and all of my nice dewy leaves on my Drosera filiformis var. trayci were broken and chewed off so i am now keeping a eye out. Something else also pulled up all of my Drosera scorpiodes and now i have none. I also do it the first time of the day is to check on water trays. I live in Ga so it dries up in about 2-3 days in a pretty big water tray.

    That's probably excessive :P

    I check my indoor carnivores quickly on the way to give my orchids and neps a morning spray. My outdoor plants get a quick check every couple days for water levels (should really invest in larger trays). My cacti and succulents get a look once a week or so.

    As often as I can. Usually once a day or every other day for outside plants. Once a day for inside. Even if it is to just look at them.

    If they bring you joy, then I wouldn't say it's excessive.

    Wow, I wish I had the time. I check anywhere from once a day to once every 3-4 days depending on how busy I am. At the moment, maybe about every other day, as working and being in school full time, I'm just not home to do much more than sleep. One thing I can say is it's almost like a nice surprise watering them after a busy week and seeing all the new growth, pitchers, etc.

    Yeah, I'd check them every day if I could (which happens more then not)! The reality is that I only need to visit to water every 2-3 days depending on how hot it is out. This is all plants indoor and out.

    I also agree that if you love the plants it is not excessive. I'm sure we all were in awe at one point or another with these plants and visited ours just as much.

    I check mine twice a day: Once in the morning, once in the afternoon/evening. Mist them during those times and I like to look at what's new.

    One reason i get to see them all the time is because i am 14 and i don't work or course (have a job) and i home school so that's why i get to check on them all the time. I don't think that is excessive. If you have the time. Plus yes i do want to enjoy my collection. I mean i have spent hundreds on the plants and supplies i have. So i don't just don't want to go and look at my expensive collection (not saying i am better than anyone) every 3-4 days i want to look at it and really appreciate the things that God has created.

    Now I check in every few months. School can get in the way sometimes.
