It depends on the variety you have at home, but now that it begins to warm the sun, do it once every two weeks at least. The ideal time is from June that you do it every week or 10 days, although if you start to tighten the heat too much or in times of drought, I recommend that you do it very often, so that the leaves can maintain the trapped humidity.
