Watering Plants in the Morning
The very best time to water plants is in the early morning, while it is still cool. This will allow the water to run down into the soil and reach the roots of the plant without too much excess water lost to evaporation.

Similarly, it is asked, is it bad to water plants at night?

Why It Is Bad to Water Plants at Night
Watering at night is not the best for your plants' leaves or overall health. After a night time soak, leaves can stay wet for a pretty long time since they don't have the day's sun to dry them off. Because of this, damp leaves become extra vulnerable to fungal development.

Also to know, when should you water plants on a hot day?

In the current hot breezy weather it is probably best to water in the early evening. This gives the plants enough time to dry out, but there is still the chance for overnight water uptake by the roots. And if you want to water in the morning then start very early – before the sun is shining.

How long should I water my garden?

A general rule of thumb is to water your garden about 2 inches once a week. Watering more often but shallower can lead to weaker root growth due to evaporation. However, gardens and plants vary widely in their water needs.

Should you water plants everyday?

If you're growing rainforest plants that are used to a daily drenching, then water them every day. But for most other plants, a daily watering does more harm than good. If plants receive too much water, it can cause a leaf-spot fungus, root and, or crown rot.
