Droopy leaves after watering. Why?


So I waited for my plants to dry out pretty well before I watered this time and after I watered them they were droopy. Is that Normal?

Not uncommon. They’ll perk back up as they dry out. How much did you water?

I gave them almost half a gallon each. Hopefully won’t need to water them for 3 or four days now.

They seem to be perking back up pretty quickly.

I give my plants about a cup and a half of water per gallon of medium (a 3 gallon pot gets 4 1/2 cups of water) every 2 or 3 days. I soak the pot completely every week or so.

Yeah not uncommon just give them a little and see if they bounce back

I’m hopping on this too. Just gave these there 3rd official watering to drainage. So far there has been 3 days inbetween each watering and they drooped within hours of this one. All the water is drained I took ph and tds samples of the runoff and its all good. PH is 6.5-6.6 the TDS ppm are a bit high around 1500 but its FFOF soil only on the 3rd draining. Also I used fresh compost tea local at the hydro store. Half gallon each, more heavily around the edge and poured the runoff back into the pot.

Gathering from what I’m reading here they will be fine but this is my first hiccup on the road and I’ll try and avoid it if I can.

Yep happens to mine every time I water it’s normal they perk back up after a few hours usually around 3 to 4 hours.

Phew thats good to hear, I have watered only when it’s super dry and I can feintly see the signs of drooping so I was a bit shocked they showed signs of overwatering . They still seemed a bit weak this morning but quickly on the mend as of after work check. Pic for comparison.
