Destroy that Urban Myth
Co. Durham, England
Not so much a question as some information.
This is a common urban myth.
'Watering during sunny weather scorches plants leaves.'
The idea is that the water droplet acts as a magnifying glass concentrating the sunlight therefore burning the leaves. This does not happen as the water evaporates long before a hot enough temperature can be reached.
If it did happen, all leaves everywhere would be burnt.
