When should i water my indoor plants?

My indoor plant(dead) but it water, I think it's because I didn't water it everyday. It die in 1 day, it's kind of my fault, but it die at 1 day. Before it die, I don't know if it's a dry patch or if it's for fungus disease? I feel a little bit bad because when I'm at work, it always shut down all day, not turn on, no smell, nothing until the next day, it turn on slowly at 4 in the morning and water everyday. I want to know when i should water indoor plants?

It's probably fungal disease as fungus will develop overnight, then at first the first hours it will dry out and then slowly start to rot. There is no quick easy answer, best just to wait and see if it happens again.

What are you doing in the room that might not be allowing for even a slight wind that might be carrying some over.

I found it in a hanging pot in a shed, then it die suddenly after I moved it, It's not in the house and I don't know the temperature and wind in the house at that time. (May be hot in the summer)

You should keep your indoor plants well ventilated and at a comfortable room temperature.

mills,

Good advice, keep a humidifier going at night in the sleeping area and dehumidify when you are sleeping.

When plants like palms and bromeliads are in direct sunlight their metabolism gets altered to make more of an extract to handle the ultraviolet radiation. This is a problem with anything that is growing in light and gets an imbalance like this.

In a plant with a dry spot, you are giving it the perfect environment to get started. And, it has probably reached a critical point of fungal or virus development. You need to plan on removing the plant and re-potting it.

Of course, after you get the new plant you then have to establish it. If you have room, plan on a succulent starter kit for it.

good advice I agree with it,

I agree, it needs repotting. When I first started in this hobby I made all the mistakes I know you are not going to want to make.

The first mistake I made was letting it dry out in a hot sunny room.

I know how to spot-pot them, but my first plant was almost all dried out when I repotted it, I was amazed that it came out of it looking healthy.

It got better as it grew, but it took a long time for me to learn,

One more thing, I must have learned to much,

I learned not to stand the plant on its side.

I stand it up straight.

If there is no natural light its okay to do this, but if there is an artificial light I do not stand it up.

I can have both my tomatoes and houseplants on my kitchen counters, because the counter is cooled by the ventilator in my kitchen.

I really do agree with other suggestions about too much wind.

But, it is my home and I can do what I want,

I am no expert, but I am growing a number of plants, I have had experience with several.

My advice is "Do what you want, but this is how I do things, if you do the same you will be fine"

Finally, I have added a chest freezer for my plants.

I store plants in it after they have grown for a while.

I use air-tight bags, if the plant has a name tag or something it won't hurt.

If it was a basil plant, I let it stay outdoors a few more days before bringing it in the house.

But, the reason I keep it indoors is for a living plant, if you can grow it out door, then great, grow it out door.

Personally, if I don't have a whole room in my house, I won't have room for it, this is why I have no room in the house for a small plant.

If it is indoors and not in a natural environment, I don't let it dry out too long.

If I do keep it longer, it has a humidifier going while it is waiting for someone to pick it up.

Growing indoors is like a pet.

I try to be a responsible pet owner.
