another watering question..
i have my fig trees in 12" pots. they have 5:1:1 soil mix. i water them until the water is at the rim of the pot and let them drain. once i do not see water coming out of the bottom of the pot, i tilt the pot at 45 degree angle and let it drain more. i do that is few different direction.
problem is, it's been at above 85 degree weather for last few days (around 60 degrees at night). i waterred the plants 4 days ago, and when i checked the soil, it was still damp about 1" from the top and at the bottom.
am i watering too much? i would imagine after 4 days at 85 degree temp, it will dry up rather nice.
plants are looking nice. there is no wilting leaves or anything. new leaves coming at the top and bud are opening up nice. they are all perky. i'm just concerned that i might be killing the roots.
