What to do? Plant soil is Dry top third Normal for a few inches then very bottom is wet but maybe only a couple of inches or so 

Should I wait to water?

@banditi is it barely wet or? personally I would give it another day or so, try to give the bottom a little more time to dry out. So there is not chance of drowning out the roots!

@okiephil thx I became worried the top half was too dry so I cracked and gave some plus nutes were due but I had waited another day and some were measuring less wet right at bottom 

I do have the pots up on grids so they don't sit in the run off

Next time I will wait longer but they looked a little dry not that I can tell the difference real well. I mentioned before the symptoms all look the same to me for so many problem's

@bandit ok, I’m sure it will be good either way. So sounds like your running soil with bottled nutes? And you might want to look into these 3way

meters they make that tell you the ph in the soil, how wet the soil is, and how much light you are getting all in one

@bandit definitely your welcome!! yea they have there days were you ? The meters, haha. I like to stick my finger n the drain holes and actually feel the soil n the bottom and see how damp it is, that’s normally my deciding factor.

@okiephil Great idea i didn't think of that silly me I should slice a hole in  cloth pots. I don't always trust the meter. 

I'm in Australia temperate part. Down to zero mid winter and up to 44 height of summer.
