Young root don't like watery conditions I've found. I never now soak the media for young plants having killed a few by over watering. Roots go to mush. They prefer dry/wet conditions in quick succession. So enough water for a day in their little pot. Mine weigh 125g when dry, and I water them up to 150g. They're on a heat mat as well which evaporates the moisture from the media more quickly which also helps to not get root rot.

Hi there! For autoflowering strains, you can follow this schedule : and for regular strains such as your WhiteWidow from RQS, you can follow this one : I always water with 20%-30% of my container capacity, this gives me almost no drain or a light drain and this will prevent from overwatering issues. Also, watering with low amount of water forces you to water slowly, which is a good thing for your soil. Finally, watering less but more often, creates great opportunities to check your plants and spend time with them :-) Hope this helps, happy growing!

Personally if you are going into the 7 gal pot I would soak the soil as Experementgreen has advised. But I wouldn’t keep watering with run off until the plant is at least 4 weeks of vegetive growth.
The reason I suggest this is that.. a small plant in a big pot will not be able to use the water/oxygen, the water at the bottom of its pot will go stagnant If it takes a week for your pot to dry that’s too long IMO, you shouldn’t have to water your plant for any longer than 4 days at any stage of its growth (Unless in coco of course)

You want to get them straight into the 7 gal pot. If you size the pot wrong and her roots develop too fast you can induce early flower. I’ve had a auto start flowering after 12 days. Good luck always here for suggestions:v::skin-tone-2:

There's a reason most start in smaller cups, and that's the risk of over watering when you soak all the pot.
As you are going to be up potting, there's no need to feed for quite a while, let the plants feed from the soil. The 1 gallon pot should last you 3 or 4 weeks before needing to up pot. I would say that with a 7 gallon pot, you should have 8 or 10 weeks before needing to feed anything. When you do feed, to so every 7 to 10 days in soil.
Now watering, I keep records of the amount of water my plants consume daily on average; also, you should give enough water for 4 to 5 days. Keep in mind that higher temperature will make this numbers go up and colder temperatures will decrease the need, but all in all it will give you and idea of how much to give them.

Considering day 1 when they open the first set of true leaves...

Day 1 to 10: 50 cc of water a day (usually I give 200 cc or 7 oz every 4 days).
Day 11 to 17: 100 of water a day (2 cups (14 oz) every 4 days).
Day 18 to 24: 150 cc (5 oz) of water a day (1 liter (1 quart) every 6 days).
Day 25 to 35: 200 cc (7 oz) of water a day (1 liter (1 quart) every 5 days).
Day 36 to 40: 300 cc (10 oz) of water a day (1.5 liter (1.5 quart) every 5 days)

Hope this helps.

7 gallon pot isn't bad, you want to water the plant with either just the water or the water +biobizz until you get about 20% run off ensuring you soak the soil. Depending on your ventilation and airflow your soil may dry faster than orhers; typically a young plant will only need watering like every 10 days in that pot, but as she grows she will drink more and then maybe need water every 2-4 days and most likely eventually every day once she's big.
Best of luck...put any pics you've gotten on, even people like seeing germination etc. Every step is fun to see.
Happy growing to you. Your friends buds look amazing.
