“Always remember that the most important air that your root zone can be supplied with comes from adequate drainage of the medium. It is fundamental to understand that during the lights off period [night time for out door gardens] the top third of the root zone consumes oxygen from the roots surroundings not the nutrient solution…While good water retention is important in a system in which less irrigation is desired, so is good drainage important in order to maintain adequate oxygen movement within the medium”
-David Robinson, ‘The Grower’s Handbook’.
Poor drainage will cause root rot. Root rot is a condition found in both indoor and outdoor plants, although more common in indoor plants with poor drainage. Usually, this is a result of over-watering. In both indoor and outdoor plants, it is usually lethal and there is no effective treatment. The excess water makes it very difficult for the roots to get the air that they need, causing them to decay. To avoid root rot, it is best to only water plants when the soil becomes dry, and to put the plant in a well-drained pot.
