Fig. 2.—Plant kept too dry, the soil shrunk away from the pot, them peculiarly susceptible to diseases and the attacks of insects. If, therefore, the water is drawn from the tap, it should not be used at once, or some warm water should be added to it. Of course, this also applies to water taken from an outside tank. Rain water is the best for all plants. For some kinds, such as heaths, azaleas, and rhododendrons, it is almost essential, for company's water is generally hard, and the lime in it is most injurious to them, and may kill them. It may be thought that a little occasionally will do no harm, but a sprinkle of water should never be given to any plants. It is worse than useless, for it does not benefit any roots.
