W Houseplant Words

Waterlogged - When soil is waterlogged, it's like a soggy sponge, drowning plants in too much moisture and suffocating their roots.

Wicking System - A wicking system is like a plant's own self-serve water station – it uses a clever setup to let the plant pull up water from a reservoir below whenever it's thirsty, through a wick.
