Many people assume they need to water their cannabis plants every single day or the plants will start to dry out and die. But the exact opposite is true.
If you water your cannabis plants too much, you’ll drown them out and damage them.
Check your plants every day. And if the top inch of soil or growing medium is dry, then it’s time to give it a thorough watering. No more than that and no less.
And be sure your plant has good drainage. It shouldn’t be sitting in a puddle of water all day.
If you follow this watering pattern, your plants will stay happily hydrated.
