Mother-in-laws tongue plant

I have recently got 2 rather large mother-in-laws tongue plants, I watered them last week real good. How long do I wait before I water them again?

Mother in law tongues are tough plants and take a lot of abuse. That being said, like all plants water as needed. How often depends on the pot, the soil, and how fast it dries. I would wait until it is almost dry. If this plant is outside in fast draining soil on a windy day it could be watered almost every day. Inside in a ceramic pot without exposure to drying breezes or vents it can go a week or more. ... plant.html
