Improper watering can cause the plants to die.

"The best time is early in the morning when the temperature outside is lower, between 5:00 and 9:00 a.m., which results in less water loss through evaporation," Lane said.

"Watering at night can lead to the accumulation of water on the soil surface, around the roots and on the leaves, which can lead to fungi, rot, insects and even plant death," the gardener said.
