Like us, plants are primarily composed of water—around 90 percent of their mass— which performs the vital function of moving nutrients around the plant. Desert plants have adapted to cope without water for considerable periods of time, but most plants with quite rapidly unless the water supply is replenished frequently.
For optimum plant performance, the supply of water should be fairly regular and definitely at those periods when the plant is programmed to expect it—otherwise, even if the plant manages to survive, it will experience various growth problems.
The job of the gardener is to help nature along at those times when, for one reason or another, the climate does not behave as expected. However, it is a wise
gardener who also understands that they will create less work for themselves if they choose to grow plants that survive in the average rainfall conditions of their climate, rather than hankering alter plants from welter climes that will require constant watering.
