Jmanc started grow question 4 years ago
Some of the lower fan leaves are really drooping downwards so much so that the tips are almost touching the main stem. All higher ones seem quite healthy. Should I be worried about this?

Hi Jmanc. Well i think you love your plant , and you just want to give her enough. But with water (and Nutrients) its like... less is more. A dry plant can survive a looong time. a overwatered plant cant stand that long time. And second do you cover the soil with aluminium foil=?. I wont do that.The humidity of overwatering cant disappear. In worst case the soil starts moldering. Give the soil fresh air and try to give dry/ wet periods

to your plant.

Hi @Jmanc! Put a fan blowing straight to your pot, to get rid of your over-watering situation. Roots need to be on a wet/dry cycle to properly spread and search for water. Keep that in mind for your next waterings, you don't want the soil wet for too long, otherwise you may create some sort of lockout and plant will need at least a week to recover (you dont want to loose this time with an auto!). Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date, and happy growing :facepunch:

Ya man,

Leaves get droppy when overwatered and also when the soild dries out (in such scenario the leaves start to become yellow and dry quick)

In this case it's just to much water- let her dry out a bit till the leaves are perky again

Personally i use fabric pots which are near to impossible to overwater and the roots get air pruned also, would recomend it to every grower ;) healthy strong root ball- strong healthy heavy yielding plant

hey man, i'm also using soil so I know what you're going through. Basically you slightly over watered which is not yet a problem you should be watering every other day or every third day actually. The dry / wet cycle is very important in soil ! so just hang back for a coupple of days then check again. there's two ways to check - either you lift your bag/pot up and see the weight if it's lighter that means the water's been consumed and you can water. the other way is to stick your finger in :point_down: and if it's dry about an inch and a half in that means it's dry and time to water again. Hope this helps :rocket:

Dropping leaves is typically a sign of watering issues. Most commonly overwatering, but under watering can produce droopy leaves too. How often are you watering and how much? I’d expect the leaves to perk back up with some modifications to your watering routine. Good luck :+1:
