Just got a soil moisture meter to play with. While the instruction guide lists the "wilt point" of many plants, it unfortunately does not include any of the Salvias. Anyone know the wilt point of SD?

i have never used a mosture meter before but you can tell when the salvia is lacking water the leaves will slightly droop and the soil is pretty dry. They do tend to hold some moisture for a period of time but if the soil stays dry for to long you will be able to tell shortly there after.

Once you water the salvias they perk right back up with out any damage.
