Pot selection is also important to keep your Zinnia, Mexican Zinnia from getting too wet. It is important to select a pot with plenty of drainage holes as this will allow excess water to train out of the pot rather than to just sit on the bottom.

Using a terracotta pot or another type of pot made of a permeable material can also help keepZinnia, Mexican Zinnia from getting too wet.

Growing Outdoors
If you are growing Zinnia, Mexican Zinnia outdoors, the amount of light your plant is receiving is key to determining how often to water your plant. Plants that require moderate water, generally do best if they can get some respite from the sun during the day as it can dry out the soil fairly quickly.
