Unless of course you have a Rafflesia Arnoldii, the biggest flower in the world, which does not have any leaves and it is also called the ‘corpse flower’ because of the odour it oozes when disturbed. That’s one plant we wouldn’t mind failing to remember to water, is it not? Best stay with roses and lilies, I only say, and water them, stroke and sing for them as if you would to some child.

As for any flowering plant, a very good gauge to find out if you are watering a plant right is to poke your finger to feel if the soil is moist. If it is, then you need not water the plant. If on the 2nd or 3rd day, you still find the soil moist, then the plant soil is still good. During the summer months, water evaporate faster and you water plant more often than once or twice a day. Just as long as the soil is moist, then the plant soil is good. Plants are ideally watered in the morning. If in the noon or night time, you find the soil dry, then it is time to water it. Plant denied of the right moisture needs tends to have smaller flower.Plants needs time to grow, So be patient to your impatient flower. Okay?

Tulips Die! Go to the local store and get yourself some
Sphagnum Moss and the new Zip-Lock Bags that have the air holes in them. Tie the remaining upright green growth together with either ribbon, string, or at worst string. Let them die to the ground.
When the upright turns brown to about two or so inches from the ground cut the green all the way to the ground. Carefully use a trowel, spoon, or other instrument and remove the bulbs from the ground. Do not dig into the tulip bulb, rather, gently dig from as far away and as deep as you can. Wear gloves while doing this. Gently remove the dirt around the bulb(s) and rinse them in straight tap water.
Put the bulbs in a bright and well ventilated area for at least two or three days to dry. Again, wearing gloves. place the Spagnum Moss into the vented "Baggie". Place each bulb into the mixture and insure that it is surrounded (top to bottom) with the Moss. Allow the bag to sit for one day in the sunny place.
Take the bags and put them in a cool and dark place, such as a basement. Make sure it is both cool and dark!
Around Halloween determine where you want the bulbs to be replanted and mix the site with Bone Meal and a 10-10-10 with minerals granular fert. Water the site and let it dry out. Take the bags from storage and plant them. Put the remaining Moss or a mulch over top for winter protection.
Come next Easter your Tulips will not only pop-up but may be in bloom. Hope it helps
HOW MUCH WATER DO FLOWERS NEED A DAY?
Enough to keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. It will be easier to keep it consistent if you cover the flat/ pot/planter with clear film until the seeds have sprouted. Once the true leaves appear (the second set of leaves on the plant), remove the film, water deeply, and then let the top of the soil dry out a little between waterings. Good luck!
