Should I water my lettuce everyday?
You should aim to keep the ground around your lettuce moist up to a depth of about two inches. This means watering every day and, in especially hot climates, it can mean watering more than once a day.
Can lettuce be overwatered?
Water your lettuce evenly every day, morning or night, until the soil feels dry to the touch. Don’t give your plant too much water, as overwatering can cause root rot and other related problems.
How much sun and water does lettuce need?
Lettuce prefers a location with 5 to 6 hours of sun, but can benefit from afternoon shade when temperatures soar. Soil should be loose, well-draining, and moist but not soggy. In the weeks prior to planting, amend with plenty of compost for added fertility.
