Average is every 3 days. My seedlings I spray with water daily so they don’t dry out but once they are past the seedling stage (about 2weeks) go for every 3 days. I use a moisture detector but I can usually just tell.

There’s no perfect watering schedule... trust me ! Just lift your pots after watering your plants, lift the pot and keep the weight in mind, then you just need to check the weight every 2-3 days , when the pots becomes light again it means it’s time to water . This is why it is really important to choose the right size of pots at the right moment. Small plants in big pots or big plants in small pots will lead you to overwatering problems in both case !

You should water every 5 day at that stage ! Also be careful about the weight of your pot , when the soil is dry the pot is light in weight so this is the right time to water and heavier when you water. Hope it will help you :grin:

I use the lift pot method myself. after a watering lift the pot and note its weight. When the top looks a little light colored and you lift the pot and its light, then water again. You'll get the hang of it pretty quick this way. Good luck!!

Hi Jready. Its not your watering that gives your plant burnt edges. Your way to do it works fantastic, BUUUUT its the Liquid seaweed. Beeing organic or not its an fertiliser, it has N, N, andK... and your foxfarm soil got it too. I would recommend to stop the feeding and wait till its normalised. The effects of nutrient burn appears days later....Water your girls /or easier give them fresh soil and read onto the package of foxfarm soil how many hutrients a re in it. a plant in that age normally dont need any fertilisers. Maybe in the end of 3rd or from 4th week on-
Overfeeding kills , not to feed does not harm, the plant shows it if she is hungry. OK happy growing

Hi @JReady! If you're not using foliar sprays, you can water every 2-3 days, but you'll need to judge by yourself, looking at the plant's leaves and the soil's dryness. Your soil need to be on a wet/dry cycle, however each phase should be pretty quick, you don't want a too dry medium neither than a wet medium for too long. That's why it's important to water with maximum 20% of your container's size. And if you want the roots to spread, you better water on the outside-border of the container, not in the middle. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

I actually poke my finger in the soil to see if it needs water.. too much water and it can drown, you end up with gnats... Soooo I will also pick up the medium/pot, to see how heavy it is.. too heavy, good on feeding..light feeling needs water. Happy Growing!

Hey dude - seedlings look good! Watering frequency is a tricky question but the general rule of thumb is to water your medium through with about 10% runoff out the bottom. That said, cannabis generally prefers “cycles” of dry and wet soil. Let the medium dictate how much you water them. If after a few days (prob. 5-6 at this stage) the soil is dry up to the first knuckle of your finger - it’s provably time to water. If it still feels moist, let em dry out more. This will vary by strain and growing conditions but it’s a pretty good rule of thumb. Hope it helps and good luck!!!:+1::facepunch:

Give them a glass of water (250 cc) every 5 days. When you notice the soil dries in two days, double the amount of water. Rinse and repeat.
