    I should pour my grandmothers' plants tomorrow.

    Hello everyone!


    Today I have a question about a verb "pour".


    I want to say that tomorrow I must pour the plants, because my grandmother asked me. So, Can I say " I should pour my grandmothers' plants tomorrow" ? Or it sounds strange. Maybe I should use another verb for describing process. Yeah, this sentence is easy, but I am really confused, therefore I hope, you will help me.


    Thanks in advance.
    Nickle.
    If I have made any mistakes, please tell me about them. I need to improve my English anyway and I hope you'll help me.

    You pour liquids or some material on(to)/in(to)/over something.

    The verb you're looking for is 'to water.'

    "Grandma asked me to water her plants while she's away."
    "When it's this hot out, I need to water the garden twice a day."
