Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them. Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.
