Peanut plants are unique in the way that they change and grow so quickly after planting. Watering them the correct amount can be a little tricky though. Like most plants, you don’t want to water them too much or too little. This article describes the best way to water them and when to stop completely. A soaker hose is the best way to go so that the soil only gets wet and the leaves stay dry and don’t encourage mildew.
- Watering depends on soil conditions and weather, but watering the plants when the soil is dry is a good way to keep the plants healthy
- More water is better than less because otherwise the plants will not produce as much
- Irrigation allows plants to be watered where they need to and not have your sole focus be on watering
“Peanut plants need plenty of water from the time they begin to bloom until the pegs have all completely burrowed into the soil.”
