    She's definitely underwatered. Like you said, more water less often. Water until the pot gets heavy. Once it's fairly light, water again. If your leaves start drooping in between, she's getting thirsty

    After watering it sprung back though, so I’d assume it’s the watering

    Use a lighter soil mix add lots of perilite to it to lighten up soil looks to compact no air this does not allow for good absorption of water.

    After watering said plant has sprung up, so I’m guessing I need to transplant to a bigger pot and water a lot more just less often
    thank you for you help I’ll keep you updated

    As I mentioned, I would go to a 12 L pot, minimum. When you do this, get a feel for the dry weight of the larger pot. Then water to a slight run off and get a feel for that wet weight. When it get to the dry weight it time to water. This helps me not water TOO OFTEN. Good luck Spruc

    I can't say anything for sure honestly cuz Im not familiar with this kind of problem. What worries me is leaves look healthy. And you are not underwatering So I have no Idea what could it be

    It’s drooping like this with the light on, I turned it off and used flash on my camera as it was difficult to see, do you think I should transplant to a bigger pot? The medium I’m using has perlite in it and the pot drains well

    The plant is Critical mass

    You can't over water a well draining medium. If you're pouring 330ml a day in that small pot, you're watering too often, driving oxygen out of the medium. Roots must have oxygen. Let it dry out until pot is very light, then water to a slight run off. Were it mine, I would up pot, minimum 12L, to a light, fluffy well draining medium. 1/3rd perlite.

    I’ve just watered the lil guy (333ml) so we’ll see if it’s underwatering or overwatering soon

    I water it 330ml every morning, I didn’t water this morning but it’s started drooping this morning, it’s a 1.43 L pot with about an inch from the top filled with the medium

    Confused, please help?!

    I have no idea what’s wrong, the soil is dryer than bone down at least half a my index fingers length, but it seems like I’m overwatering, I haven’t watered since yesterday morning, it’s now 21:00, temperatures have been perfect all day, humidity dropped a little low but the humidifier was turned on to correct it, any guidance is a big help, this is my first plant
