In the beginning of your grow, you will likely be watering your marijuana plants every couple of days. Watering every 2-3 days is optimal for a young plant. If it’s taking too long for your plant to dry out, you may need to give less water at a time until the plant is growing faster. If you feel like you are watering your plants too often, you may need to give more water at a time.
You can also move plants into a bigger pot (which holds water for longer). If plants take longer than 3-4 days to dry, make sure your potting mixture has good drainage and consider giving less water at a time. If plants are drying out in 1 day or less, try giving more water at a time or transplanting to a bigger pot. Speaking of pot size, it is generally best to start young cannabis plants in relatively small containers (like a solo cup with a few holes cut out of the bottom for drainage), and move plants into bigger containers as they get bigger. Starting in smaller containers makes it a lot harder to overwater your plants when they’re young, and makes it easier to flush plants and/or respond to problems if they occur. That being said, you can plant your seeds right into their final container. Just be careful not to overwater your seedlings at first if they’re in a big container as they’re not drinking much water in the beginning.
If you started your plants in a solo cup, I’d recommend moving to a bigger pot once the plant is a week or two old, as soon as the leaves reach the edges of the solo cup. 10-20% Extra Runoff Every Time You Water (if you’re providing nutrients in the water) Every time you water your plants, make sure that you provide enough water to get about 10-20% extra run-off out the bottom of the container, especially if you’re feeding additional nutrients in the water. Sometimes soil and soilless growing mediums like coco coir start to collect natural salts from fertilizers that never get washed out. These built-up salts can eventually cause nutrient problems, pH problems, and nutrient lock-out if they’re not removed on a regular basis. Making sure you keep adding water until you get run-off is also a great way to make sure that your plants are draining properly. Plus, this practice will immediately alert you to any drainage problems, (as mentioned earlier, cannabis likes well-draining soil) because you’ll be able to notice if the water takes a long time to come out the bottom, or doesn’t come out at all. First, make sure you’re using proper cannabis nutrients for your growing medium. They should be formulated for a plant like tomatoes, and they should have a different feeding schedule for the Vegetative (Grow) and Flowering (Bloom) stage. If using nutrients on a regular basis by adding them to your water, it’s generally a good idea to give your cannabis plants nutrients every watering. This ensures the amount of nutrients in the plant root zone is kept relatively stable. If you notice the tips of leaves getting burnt from nutrient burn, it may mean you need to lower your overall strength of nutrients. Most nutrient recommendations on the side of the bottle are too strong for cannabis plants, and should be cut in half unless plants appear pale or lime green (which means they want higher levels of nutrients overall). If Growing in Composted or Amended Soil, Give Just Enough Water That the Soil is Wet All the Way Through. When growing in composted and amended soil, the soil itself is made to slowly provide nutrients to your plant throughout its life. However, if you’re regularly watering until you get a significant amount of runoff, you’ll also be washing away some of your nutrients. This is good when the plant is getting the nutrients directly in the water, to avoid unwanted buildup in the soil, but try to avoid a lot of extra runoff if you want your nutrients in the container to last until harvest. Therefore, when growing in amended soil you should only water until you get just a drop or two of water runoff out the bottom. You want to ensure you gave enough water to reach the bottom of the pot without letting a significant amount of water run out the bottom. Proper watering practices will greatly help reduce the amount of salt buildup and prevent nutrition problems from occurring. If your cannabis plants shows signs of drooping, often the plant is getting too much or too little water, but not always. Too much water at a time, or giving water too often Not enough water at a time, or giving water too infrequently Drooping can also occur in hot conditions, or when it’s very humid or dry because the plant isn’t able to move water properly through the plant. Plants sometimes get droopy if they are given a lot of water after being allowed to dry out for too long, due to the stress of the water pressure quickly changing at the roots. Drooping is almost always associated with something going on at the roots, but plants also tend to put their leaves down a bit right before the lights go off, as if they’re preparing to “sleep” for the night. That can sometimes be mistaken as drooping when its actually part of the plant’s natural rhythm. In order to prevent over or under-watering, make sure you water thoroughly every time (don’t just water a tiny spot in the middle of the pot unless you plant is very small for the container). You should be getting 10-20% extra runoff water every time if you’re adding nutrients in the water. In soil, wait to water again until the top inch of the growing medium feels dry, up to your first knuckle or so.
In coco coir, aim to water the plants every 1-3 days if possible, and don’t let the top completely dry out between waterings. Wilting is the first sign of underwaterd marijuana plants Leaves are limp and lifeless, they may seem dry or even “crispy” Will eventually lead to plant death if not corrected. Drooping / Curling is the first sign of overwaterd marijuana plants Leaves are firm and curled down all the way from the stem to the leaf Will eventually lead to leaf yellowing and other signs of nutrient problems if not corrected. If your plant is experiencing “the claw” and not just normal drooping (like the ends of leaves are just pointing down like talons, then you may actually have a nitrogen toxicity (too much nitrogen).

What is an actor with the crunching gravitas of Laurence Fishburne doing in a flimsy motorcycle movie like ''Biker Boyz''?
Glowering behind a Fu Manchu mustache, he plays Smoke, the ''King of Cali'' and leader of the Black Knights, an underground California motorcycle club made up of white-collar African-Americans who shed their business attire off-hours to put on leather and go racing.
