What exactly occurs when a plant is over-watered?

    There is more than one reason why over-watering is harmful to plants. For one thing, most plant roots need access to oxygen, and too much water in the soil prevents the roots from getting any air. In other words, plants can “drown” just like we can. In addition, soil that is too damp tends to attract mold and other types of fungi that can be harmful to plant roots. Both lack of oxygen and fungal diseases that come with damp soils have potential to sicken and kill a plant.
