Even with poorly draining soil, you would be better off if you stop over watering. You are likely watering too often, too frequently.[quote=“MacGyverStoner, post:19, topic:4527”]
don’t water again until the container feels very very light, as if all the soil is dry
Yes, over watering can cause nutrient deficiencies as the roots are suffocating and not healthy, they cannot properly uptake nutrients if the conditions in the soil stay too wet all the time at the center root mass. Watch the plants, but don’t water until this center mass of soil dries out. Then, and only then should you water again, and water to saturation, then repeat the process:[quote=“MacGyverStoner, post:19, topic:4527”]
don’t water again until the container feels very very light, as if all the soil is dry, all the way to the bottom (or center), but before the plants show any signs of wilting from lack of water.
Cool thanks! I’ll wait till it’s completely dry. I was waiting till an inch or 2 down was bone dry but bc of my shit drainage I will have to wait much longer! FML but thanks for the help! This is my first grow in many years and it’s more of a practice run
