Did you know that over-watering can promote knot root nematodes? They thrive in wet conditions and can kill your plant, or make it weak.
Too much water can also cause the roots to rot and wipe out your plant.
How do you know that water is actually getting down into the soil? You have to physically check your soil. In some cases water just runs off. Poke your finger or a small shovel down into the soil to find out if water is actually getting down to the roots.
