Water Conserving In Potted Plants

This is a pepper plant. I ripped up paper sandwich bags to top the soil and covered that with some mulch. You could probably use grocery bags and ripped up cardboard instead but oddly, I had none. The real heat of the Texas summer hasn’t hit yet but so far it seems to be helping me space out how often I need to water, so instead of watering about once every couple of days I can go with maybe twice a week. It seems to be working well so far.
