It helps when we can see good quality pictures such as yours. I'd also agree that you've over watered. In the event you are unsure you have different options to find out your watering schedule for the specific strain you are growing. Keep in mind each plant is different. You can weight your pots when dry to give you an idea of the weight then water and figure out how many days in between. Second you can wait until first sign of your leave also wilting as they are now which can also mean to require water. It's best to avoid over stressing your plant but you'll get into a pattern and then you'll get the feel for it. For now, let the soil dry to help expedite the process have some extra air circulating and move the soil around without disturbing the roots, you may only be able to mix the first 1-2" at the top.

Hi @Bartholinus! Yes it seems that you over-watered your babies. Make sure to weight the container every time before considering watering: you will then be able to guess the amount of water left in the medium. Roots need to be on a wet/dry cycle to ensure a healthy development, they tend to expand when they're searching for water, so you don't want a 100% wet medium neither than a 100% dry medium, but a little bit of each, with quick rotations. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

Tou could be overwatering. I would feel the soil to see if it is dry and also lift the pots to see if they are lighter. Keep doing this as you grow and you will have a feel for it.

The other issue may be fresh air. Do you exchage air and have an exhaust fan? I had this trouble before and once I all fresh air it all clear up.

Fell free to reach out to me if you have any more questions.

Happy growing!

Cheers!

0.8 liters a day of water in a 3 liter por? Yes you are over watering, by a lot. A liter of water should last you from 3 days to a week, before needing water again.

It looks like over watering to me, are the leave soft and squishy? I’ve done this a couple times myself doesn’t take long to perk back up especially if running a dehumidifier. Keep note of how much you water this time then try a little less next time! Over watering does cause the leaves to curl
