CBDbusho started grow question 3 years ago
I’m not sure if I’m watering enough. I always check if the soil is dry about 30mm under surface but I still water the soil gently with a sprayer only. Is it beneficial to spray onto the leaves? I’m using donut humidifier and achieving RH levels between 30 and 80%

Hi, Its the better way not to overdo the watering.Girls come along nicely with less water. But 400 ml sounds pretty good for me .And its absolutely ok th spray them too. But best is to do it when the lights are off to avoid burning through the lights. Next money you got buy an humidifier, girls tend to grow better in the Right Rh. Its absolutely worth the money in the comments more to read

Always try lift your container and determin that way when to water. When you check on top of the soil you don't know wheter it's still wet or moist down low. So lift your girls and that way you'll learn perfect time when to water your plants.
Happy grows! hope this helps ya

Hi @busho! Don't water to the runoff with soil, as this could lead to an overwatering scenario, it will stunt your plant and you will loose a precious time. Instead, try to weight the container before and after each watering, give an adjusted amount of water, and watch how the leaves are responding (before/after). It's better to wait for signs of underwatering than to flood your soil with water too often. If leaves are praying the light, they're not thirsty; if they're looking downward they need water, and will recover and go back to prayin within the next hours. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing :facepunch:

Your plant looks good but it sounds like you should be watering with more volume. You should water until you see a little water coming out the bottom of the pot. Also, you should judge when to water by weight rather than how dry it is 30mm down. The reason for this is that 30mm down will dry out pretty quickly but the root zone lower down will still be pretty wet. So basically lift the pot when it is fully watered and then lift it every day. Once it feels very light its time to get watering. The only other suggestion I have is that you should make sure you are checking the ph of the water you are feeding the plant. For soil, you want to keep the ph in a range of 6.2-6.8 and let it go up and down in that range to make sure the plant has access to everything. I only mention this because I don't see a ph value listed in your diary.
