Water 12Ltr fabric pots

Hello gang 

 

noob question here lol 

 

I have 12Ltr fabric pots almost two weeks into 12/12 under a 400w hps

 

lights off temp today been 21c lights on right now is 26c

 

seem to be watering everyday?? I gave each plant 2Ltr water yesterday and today there all dry literally can poke half a finger in the top soil and it’s dry

 

Surely I shouldn’t be watering everyday? lol I know fabric pots dry out quicker but everyday??


Guess 2Ltr isn’t enough so what do you guys say how many Ltr per plant??

If a 12ltr is completely dry then whether its coco or compost it should need about 4ltr to fully saturate the rootball and attain a run off

I give my flowering plants in 12ltr fabric pots 4-4.5ltr of water every 72 hours.... seems to be about right.

Every time I water the water pisses out the sides of the pots straight into the pots lol but within 2minutes all the water in the pots are soaked straight up

 

il give 4Ltrs next time see how that goes :)

You need to water slowly at first so that doesn't happen, as ideally you don't wanna be feeding from the bottom.
