this is a white widow autoflower - around 4 weeks old. Starting to flower

Growing in a 5lb “pot for pot”

the leaves are starting to drop and we have yellowing at the bottom

we have a pH checker but question accuracy: pH of soil yesterday was 8, have made no changes, pH today is 5??? 

we've been giving water every other day , around 600-750mL in a five gallon pot 

due for water today. Still feels damp at 1in down but top soil very dry

do we water? PLEASE HELP ASAP

@lowegrow No, dont water mate, you're watering too much and thats what might be causing the issues. In soil you should leave a day between watering to let the soil dry out a bit and let the roots breathe. 

Better to give a good watering and get a little run off, and let the soil dry out instead of watering small amounts every day. 

What are you feeding her and how often?

@macky we water every other day. We had been using 375-400 ML of water each watering and went up to 600 the last week of watering, still on a every other day rate. The plant has started to flower this week. 

we aren’t feeding anything besides water since the soil we use from pot for a pot comes with everything we would need in the soil. 

how much would a good watering be? Is that flushing? Would doing that now hurt the plant since it is going into flower?

@lowegrow Sorry mate, i wasnt aware this was living / super soil. No run off then, you dont wanna disturb the micro biome too much. You want to make sure the soil is well saturated, but not to the point of run off. The let it dry out for a day and water again. Cannabis likes a wet and dry cycle in soil, but dont go too dry as itll kill the microbes, every other day in a pot that size should be plenty Smile

@macky so it’s actually “superb soil” by a pot for pot

@macky so since it is supposed to be watered today on it’s normal schedule should I give it a good watering today since the top soil is completely dry. The closer to the middle of the pot feels damp about 1.5-2 inches down and the outer edges of the pot feel dry 2 inches down.

@lowegrow yer that sounds like it could do with a good watering mate make sure all of the soil is wet, but try not to water so much that you get run off. Just make sure everything is wet Smile Then dont water tomorrow, but water well again the next day. She will prefer that cycle i think

@macky alright is 600 ML enough? I recently changed the bottled water brand I was giving it but I do make sure the PH is around 6 regardless the brand I give it. Should I get the ice mountain brand I was using before or am I looking into it to much? Also, isn’t it true that they need more water in flower compared to veg? Since it’s starting to flower this week wouldn’t it need more water and it’s possibly under watered? The leaves on top feel kind of “fat/full” but as I go down the plant they don’t feel that way and almost feel thin and dry

@macky so I didn’t water last night and they don’t look worse today. Not better but not worse. Still damp near center of the pot near base of the plant about 2 inches down. The sides of the pot are dry further down than 2 inches, should I water today or wait until it uses up the water near the center? I don’t want to keep the soil moist too long to prevent the roots from breathing. Any thoughts?
