Heat Wilt

As our days get hotter, your plants might start drooping during the middle of the day. Now, this could be caused by one of two things. Either it’s very dry, and needs to be watered immediately, OR it is in heat wilt, and needs to be left alone! Some plants wilt during the middle of the day to conserve energy, and once it cools down or the sun sets, they pop right back up and look gorgeous. So before you grab your water hose and soak everything that’s wilting, check the soil. If it’s moist or if the pot is heavy, leave the plant alone (it’s just being dramatic)!
