How often and how to water my Jacaranda?

One of the most used trees for ornamental purposes thanks to its exquisite flowering is the jacaranda.

The subject of irrigation of jacarandas is one of the easiest to apply because it is very undemanding around it.

This sometimes leads to forgetting that it needs water to carry out its processes, like all living beings, so the opportunity for more and better flowers is lost.

But that will not happen to you because with the information that we bring you in this post you will be ready to take action without hesitation. Shall we start?

Important points when watering a jacaranda:

  • Irrigation frequency: every 3 or 4 days in summer and once a week the rest of the year.
  • Irrigation method: sprinkling, hose or watering can, depending on where the tree is planted.
  • Optimum time of day for irrigation: in the morning or late afternoon.
  • Identify excess water: leaves turning brown, weak stems, fungal settlement.
  • Identify lack of water: in adult trees it is unlikely that problems will be generated because they resist drought. If it is growing, it could take longer to develop.

What irrigation needs does the jacaranda have?

Jacaranda watering demands do not tend to be very high, beyond what it may require during hot summer days.Being a tree that is planted outdoors, it has easy access to rainwater when it is in season, so on those days you can forget about watering.

The leaves of a jacaranda that is suffering from overwatering may begin to look darker, sometimes brown as a sign of rot. This problem will also cause the flowers to fall prematurely and you will lose the opportunity to enjoy that gift.

In the case of the branches, they can start to feel weak, like rubbery. If the problem of excess water is not taken care of, it is quite likely that fungi will arise from the roots that will progressively damage it.
