    I don't know anything about Vietnamese corridor so I can't help with that.
    If your sage & oregano are drying out. Water them more regularly!!
    You could always leave them out so they get tonight's rain that you are so worried about. They would probably like that.

    You know, you should be watering you plants properly, not let them totally dry out then panic and drown them. Water them every day if they're in pots two or three times a day with a watering can especially in hot weather. And not 60ml but a good watering then you wouldn't need to think about drowning them. If you're wondering why your plants aren't doing well then the answer is you. You're putting them through too much stress that they just cannot thrive.

    Tarragon, I've merged your threads again. You don't need to start a new thread with every question you want answered. If your questions are all based on watering, keep it to one thread.

    We're all still learning - you won't find anywhere here who's prepared to say they know it all.
    We give up our own time freely to encourage others to benefit from our experiences - and when we've answered a question once we don't expect to be asked the same question over and over again. That makes people lose patience and stop reading posts.
    You may think you're asking different questions but you're not. You have to apply the answers you have been given and see what works for you. Learning comes from experience and trial and error.
    We can't be there with umbrellas every time it rains or testing how damp the compost is and whether it needs more water. You're on your own and you must make your own decisions!
    We'll willingly answer new questions but I think you will have very few responses if you keep on repeating yourself.
    Look on the bright side

    If you put all your like minded questions in the same thread it would help you refresh on what has already been asked and answered.
    If you read through some of the responses a few times it may help.
    The same people often revisit a thread they've posted in and can then add a little more info rather than start again.

    Over watering is bad, but leaving them dry out and die is the total opposite. You need to find the middle ground. Gardening is trial and error - learn from your mistakes.

    Vietnamese coriander does need a lot of watering. If I miss a day for mine (in a pot because tender) it wilts a bit.
