I need help!!I water my plant every 4-5 and just water 7hrs ago but the leaves still look like it needs water. Could I be over watering it??
What size pot are you using and how much water I doubt your overwatering if it’s every 4-5 days also what’s your pH and medium
Normal lighting will be helpful if you can please.

@Tay0024 please fill out the support ticket when you can, and a picture in natural light. Welcome to the community!
New to this site and I cannot figure out how to post a new thread… so I’m doing it here.
New grower here and I just planted my first seeds 3 days ago (autoflower Moby Dick because it is supposed to be great for novices due to being a resilient strain ) I have my 1000w quantum board LED at 36” and at 40% as per the recommendations. 72°F-78°F at all times with a temp controller, 75% - 80% RH, 2x4ft vivosun tent, 4” in-line and carbon filter with a speed controller, small fan running at all times, FFOF soil, PHing at 6.4. I am doing this in my unfinished basement where it gets absolutely freezing. I have the tent on top of a wooden pallet with some plastic under it so it’s not sitting on the cold cement, as well as insulation on top to limit how much heat escapes.
Ive done a lot of research on this prior to starting so I think I’ve got everything I need for this stage in the game. I decided to simply plant my seeds and let it grow from there, rather than germinating with a paper towel or the glass method. Today is day 4, and everything has been good from what I can tell. I’m only watering enough to moisten to area around the seeds and letting it dry before watering again. Here’s the point of my post - I had asked my wife to please look at my pots to see if watering was necessary, it was (I was working and she was home) so I explained how to do it and she did it perfectly. I also asked her to add water to my humidifier (I have the opposite issue as most and I was struggling to get my RH high enough rather than it needing lowered!! Sooo annoying) which is where something went wrong lol. I came home from work about 3 hours after she had been in the tent and noticed the RH was at like 58 % - she forgot to add the water and it was shut off. So I add the water, tweak the settings and leave it alone. I wake up this morning to 99% RH… I was freaking out. So I opened the tent to get some of it out, and changed a few things and turned my inline fan up.
My question (finally right??) is will this hurt my seeds chances of sprouting? I know above 90% RH is bad bad bad, but this was for a short amount of time and the seedlings have NOT emerged from the soil yet. I have to watch it carefully now to ensure the humidifier is functioning correctly.![image|375x500]
I would recommend to dome them, and it will hold moisture in and humidity up.
