Description: Determining when and how much to irrigate in particularly difficult in a container nursery because seedlings use up water quickly in small containers, where it is difficult to directly observe moisture conditions. The best irrigation monitoring technique is to weigh the containers between irrigations because the relative wetness of the growing media can be correlated to the container weight.
