Watering and seedlings.

Discussion in 'Coco Coir' started by MandalaSmoker, May 2, 2013.

  1. How many times do I need to water them a day if the cup they are in stays moist?Ive only watered them about five times since they came up.Ive fed the oldest once.

    I watered yesterday and the coco is still very moist.I dont want to underwater/overwater them.
  2. Mate if its damp they ain't thirsty
  3. As long as it's coco and you got a bit of perlite in the mix, you won't over water them. I feed about every one and a half to two days. Any longer and the coco gets too dry and the plants just HATE that.
  4. When i see patches on the top layer fully dry i water. For seedlings, i start them in 1gals so it doesn't dry out very fast. Just pick it up and see if its lighter than when saturated.
  5. Dingus is right. I do notice when I water, there will be patches of Dry coco. When I used to grow soil, I would let the pot dry out a bit to lengthen roots... Don't do that with coco.:eek: Been there. Patches of dry = Good to water. Good advice, Dingus.
  6. Thanks for all the help
