Commercial potting soils tend to be mostly fluffy light organic material
which holds water well. BUT, if they dry out, water may run right through
without getting the soil wet. Watch out for this, and if you see it
happening, plop the pot in water (not deep enough to run over the rim) for
a few minutes to get the soil wet. Then be sure to let it drain.
It's hateful to be told constantly that overwatering is the main cause of
potted plant death, and then be warned about excessive drying, but be
aware of the problem.
