BeardedTree started grow question 4 years ago
How often should I water?
Also, I have a viparspectra 450w with adjustable dials. Which dials should be on during vegetation? I.e. white, blue or red?

Thanks in advance.

#1 at this stage look at signs from your plant she will tell u when shes thristy for mine i got a shot glass for my nutes the first two weeks i gave 15ml of water so 3 shot glasses twice a day and they are blowing up if i was u i would water light and often then one big watering your plants are looking good you got to have PATIENCE watch your ph and imo never water to run off people are stuck on this theory and they are wrong u are wasting your money watch your ppm check your waters ppm if its not distilled its probly 300 are so it causes so many problems people not taking the ppm readings right distilled has a 0 ppm and ec should be the same AND CHECK YOUR PH #2 On the light in veg u can run all at the right distance your blue will keep your plants nodes tight and close together with the white light u run the full spectrum your plants will stretch more with the red so to get both of both worlds run them all add a red bloom booster in flower for more stretching and bigger buds go 36 inches full power and watch the change after 4 weeks drop down to 24 30 inches so on stop at 20 inches u will roast them at anything lower hope this helps :v::v::+1::+1::beers::beers:

If you have another 18.93l pot, fill it with the same media as your plant and put it on some bathroom scales- that weight is your dry pot weight. You can either keep weighing plants when you think their near their dry pot weight to know when to water, or do it by feel (my feel is rubbish, so I used scales). When you water, say 3l, that's 3kg. Weigh them for a few days after watering to see how much they drink. If that's 0.5l/day and you have given them 3.0l, you know that's ~6 days of water. etc etc.

Regarding the lights, veg lights will be blue & white, red is more for flowering. If you have plants that normally grow short, you can use the red as well to create some extra stretch. HTH and Happy Growing!

Water when soil is dry and the pot is light. In soil this happens to be around every 3-4 days you shouldn’t need any more than a cup to a cup and a half of water at this stage. Also it is important and can help cool down the plants if you are misting it with water every so often. Blue and white light are more important at this stage but you should introduce the red light in about a week or so. With my viparspectra I found that around week 4 or 5 when I would introduce the red light my plants really took off. Good luck on your grow!

You should water every 4 or 5 days and for a plant that size I suggest 500 cc (17 oz) of water. Don't water to saturate the whole pot or you will over water.
As for the dials, use white and blue and put the light closer, it will have the same intensity or even more, but less heat.

Hi there! Water every 2-3 days once the soil is dry, with around ~20-25% of your pot’s capacity. So 1 gal of water for your 5 gals containers should be fine. Now about your light, white and blue in the vegetative stage then add some red color when entering the flowering stage. This model is known to create some light-burn so you need to increase slowly the power with your dimmers depending on how your plants will react. Hope this helps, keep us up to date and happy growing!
