Here recently when I give the recommended water amount for my arrowhead plant, the water overflows from the bottom of the planter to my counter. The planter does have a dish attached to the bottom. What could have changed?

Sometimes soil becomes hydrophobic. Does the soil feel moist before or after you water? Or does it feel dry?
Thank you for responding. It was dry before before I watered.
Try taking a wooden dowel or chop stick and creating some holes in the soil. Sometimes it gets compacted and you gotta give it a little stir.
Thanks, I’ll try that.
