Water regularly in the warmer months, when overnight temperatures are consistently over 8-10 degrees C. Water less in winter .It’s often best when watering indoor plants in cooler months to just water the saucer under the plant to prevent fungus gnats and fungal diseases. Don’t leave plants sitting in water for more than 24 hours in winter. Unestablished plants and container specimens may require more frequent watering especially over summer.
