As your plant gets bigger it’s going to need more water. Just keep watering the way you are, but with more water to get some runoff. By the time she’s flowering, she’s going to need even more water. These are very thirsty plants, just make sure you’re drying her out between waterings. :slight_smile:


Please fill out the support ticket and include your watering and feeding regimen and please be as complete as possible. What do you ph to, when do you feed, how much etc.


I agree with info is important so if possible fill support ticket out
But in general when small you will water less often depending on temperatures and humidity levels in the grow room or region your in
hotter and dryer more water humid and cooler less water
Most of us water or feed once we have a adult plant every 2-3 days indoors but checking soil visually is best way to judge imo
Some plants will drink less even if others of the same strain drink more each plant is a little different just like people
Or you can pick up pots once they dry out good and make a mental note water when they are as light
As when you test lifted
@raustin soes make a good point the bigger they get the more they drink ive have grows where i had to water almost daily
