    When I water, I wait until plants literally start asking. I'll show you what I mean. Pictures below just before water and an hour or so after. I have 5 in this grow, I wait for the first signs of being dry then water. You can see before and after what I mean

      I see what ya mean...I noticed my plants drooping a bit before the last watering...given my recent learning experience, I wanted to make sure they were actually needing some water. So, now it's finger in to the first knuckle, lift the pot to check the weight, the leaves for a slight sag.
      Second harvest drying and curing...

      Next grow Pineapple Haze x 4...maybe

        When I first started indoors I was using 5 gal buckets with drainage holes, and still managed to overwater. Airpots made it almost impossible to over saturate, I still have to keep myself in check. It's all a learning curve,

        I am quite capable of overwatering, even in smart pots and air pot! You can watch me do it on my thread.
