Water new plants every day for 1 week, every other day for the next 2 weeks, and then as required.
For clay soil, water every other day for a week, then every 3 days for 2 weeks. Adjust all watering according to natural rainfall or drought conditions. Try not to water the plant’s foliage as it can increase the risk of disease. Rather, water at the base of the plant at ground level, preferably in the morning. If going away for a period of time, have someone water for you.
