  • My plant is outside. How often is water recommended? I have given it Super Bloom.
    How often is feeding recommended in the summer? I moved it so it would be exposed to the rain
    and it enjoyed that, only wish we would be getting more.
    After the rain I move the plant to a covered area.
    Thank you for your reply.

  • Hi Paula,
    We recommend you water when the soil dries out (probably every 5-7 days in the summer). In the winter, bring it inside and hardly water at all. I would follow the houseplant directions on the Super Bloom as far as how much and how often. If there aren’t any houseplant instructions, follow the container directions at half strength, just as often. Let me know if you have any more questions.
