When to switch from sprinkling to watering

I have 4 seedlings right now that range from 1/2" to 1" in height.
Right now I am watering them with a spray bottle.
I looked all over and couldn’t find anything that said when I should switch from the spray bottle to actually pouring water into the soil.
Any insight is appreciated!

I think it’s a feel for the plants that’s why you don’t see any information on this. It depends a lot on the size of the pot compared to the size of the plant. If you think the plants can handle more water then give them more.


My plants are about 2 weeks old and just got their first true watering today. Plants are between 3 and 4 inches tall

Okay. It sounds like it will be a little while longer…
