    Default Over/under watering

    Hi need some help. Just started in soil and having drooping leave problems. I use 7.5L air pots and feed around 1.5L every 3/4 days. Been told to wait till pot is light but got feeling im waiting too long. I think its underwatered but need another opinion. Attach few images below.

    You should wait until the pots are light & then water until run off, not by a set amount...

    That's the trouble with those sort of pots & soil

    You need to find a way of watering slower so the liquid has a chance to rehydrate your medium rather than go straight through it

    I'd recommend getting yourself a garden sprayer mate and using that to water with. Takes a little longer but I've found it soaks the pots really well

    Drip or spray system for slow feeds is usually best and when it's dialled in you'll only get the waste you want

    Watering cans work quite well.
