Watering my palms with hot water by mistake

Recommended Posts


I had extended my garden hose from a 25' long hose to 100' long in order to wash my car over the weekend and I forgot to change it back.

Because of this the long 100' hose was left exposed laying on the driveway and was in full hot Florida sun for hours.  I picked up the hose this afternoon and began to water the plants (some of them palms), I didn't realize the water from the hose was very hot until very late when I touched the hose to shift it's position.  It was very hot, not quite boiling hot but very hot.  I immediately water everything again once the hot water in the hose was all expelled.

Did I do any damage to my plants by watering them with this hot water?  Worried.
