How much should I be watering my poppies?
    #4072895 - 04/19/05 03:39 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I've got some baby poppies growing right now and I'm not sure if I'm watering them too much or too little. They're in pots that are about 1 gallon or a little bigger. The humidity here only gets up to about 30%. I usually put about 1/2 cup of water in each pot about every 4 days and mist the top of the soil everyday. The surface is still dry every morning. I've never been able to grow ANYTHING, so please be very desciptive. Am I on the right track or do I need to adjust my habits? Thanks.

Are they indoors? If so, it's very hard to grow poppies indoors, i've tried a few times. Your watering periods sound find.

Wait....You are supposed to water them? Didn't you or someone else say that if you water them once after planting seeds and it is not super dry, that you are done as far as watering goes?

They are very forgiving.
Watering whenever the soil looks dry would be fine for both seedlings or bigger plants.

I read somewhere that watering less during the final stages of their lifecycle increases potency. As my plants are all budding by now i only water when i spot the first signs of dehydration.

Yeah there indoors for the time being. I'm gonna stick them outside when it's a bit warmer but they'll still be in pots. I'm hoping my pots are big enough. There about 1 & 1/2 gallon size. Any idea if this will be big enough?
