3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply when the top inch of soil is dry, especially during the growing season. Reduce watering during the winter months.
4. Mulching: Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant helps retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds.
