Too much watering
« on: June 24, 2020, 05:01:28 pm »
I have 2 tomato plants in one earth box. I have to water them twice each day to keep them from withering. Is this normal? Shouldn’t the earth box hold enough moisture for an entire day?

The EB reservoir holds 2 gallons, 2 tomato plants will use 2 gallons a day. When are you watering and do you water to overflow
Why Google, when you have me?

I water in the morning and by early evening it’s bone dry.

That's exactly what happens, there's nothing wrong. Keep that reservoir filled.
