Care for Solanum pseudocapsicum

Posted by mrpotato none (My Page) on

I have a pot of Solanum pseudocapsicum growing indoor in my home in the Netherlands. However in recent weeks it seem to be drying up despite daily watering. I was wondering what is the growing condition of this plant, and how do I take care of it. Does it requires frequent watering?

Thank You

mrpotato, I an not familiar with the plant but from my experience with the edible tomato(Solanum lycopersicum) I would water it sparingly - especially indoors.

Daily watering?!?!?! It isn't a rainforest/pond plant and is probably experiencing root rot from being treated like that.
