Can we grow anything in the gritty mix? Watering regimen?
It seems a dumb question to ask. But, I need some guidance about the watering regimen, for the gritty mix:
I chose the gritty mix as I had good results with my Osmanthus & Spider plant. But now, I'm having doubts as my experience with Pachira aquatica, wasn't so good, due to my ignorance about the water regimen. I watered every 2nd day from mid February as a result the plant has droopy leaves, but I'm getting some help with that in another thread.
Anyway, back to the watering regimen.
I recently planted a small greek myrtle (Myrtus communis) plant, a small Jasminum sambac, and a pineapple sage (Salvia elegans) in the gritty mix. As I plan to bring them in during the winter.
Now it seems that I made a mistake.
It seems that Greek myrtle needs water all the time, though I wonder why as it is a Mediterranean plant.
And the others I'm not so sure, as I am not familiar with them.
Now, my confusion is the watering regimen.
Lets start with spring/ summer, then as I understand the logic, I can adapt it for fall and winter.
The pots are clay, and they receive 5 hours of sun. From morning till noon,
I live in Montreal, where depending the days are hot and humid.
So, my question, is what is the watering frequency for these plants? Twice a week, three times a week, every day?
Thanks a lot,
