The Q&A Archives: when plants are established

Question: I have several ?'s actually, sorry.. some dusty millers leaves are turning pink/wilting - too much water? how long after planting should i water plants till they get established? i bought most drought tolerant/native plants for living in naples fl. is there a book that ONLY contains native species to us? [or website], thank you i love this website for a beg. gardener, great help!!!

Answer: Here's a website with lists of drought tolerant native plants. You may be able to find more information by typing native plants Florida into your browser.

Dusty miller needs to be deeply watered once each week. They normally establish their roots within 4 weeks of planting. Wilting can be simply a symptom of transplant shock or it could be that they need more/less water. Once a week should be enough for your plant.

Glad you like the website. Stop in often!
