New grower Made it to veg!
Hi everyone, I'm hoping I could get some advice on watering. My plants are now in their first week of veg and I feel more comfortable looking at them to see what they need. However I'm still having a bit of trouble when it comes to how much water I should give them. Any thoughts?
thats a good question!
An easy rule of watering is to water at a rate of 5-10% of the pot size daily if temps are ok
you can adjust this to 20% of pot size every 2 days for example
plants like to be watered consistently (or using regular routines) so they can adjust to it and not have to keep changing their metabolism
This is only a guide ... some plants to drink more and some less
Lifting the pot is an easy way to tell if water is required .. if it feels too light water... if it fees heavy for its size it doesn’t
you get used to this if you do it regularly
As Woolie mentioned the medium can also affect watering rates and amounts too 👌
Hope this helps
Time to pop some more beans 😗
