Somebody got to thirsty

My poddy mouth plant has been to thriving plant of the bunch. Its definitely gonna have to goto every day watering from here on. What is it i can add for the soil to retain water better?

Nothing at this point really. Welcome to the days of growing in the southeast during spring/summer… My plants will go through a gallon a day in soil during the hotter months…

Just start watering daily until i can get the auto watering drippers in place.

I have two plants around day 45 that are already taking almost a gallon each every day. I usually don’t get that until towards the end of the grow. Just go with it. The more water and nutes they’re taking the more potential you have for a nice harvest. What kind of auto watering system you getting or making?

Try cutting up some cheap sponges into small pieces and add to your soil. Its an old trick for indoor and outdoor alike

It is a timed dripper system. I used it for the last part of my last run.


Placement might be different for last time. But the same system.

Peat moss? Vermiculite?

I like it. I plan on doing something similar with halos when I finally find a new place.

I would transplant her if possible.

I hate to being as i just flipped it to flower. But if it keeps drinking this much i may have to.

I was so happy to see she came back to life for me when the lights came back on today.

I like having to deal with the garden after work. Mornings can get busy, and i overlook things or make mistakes from rushing.

Ha, I am always late to work because of playing with the plants. Always tell myself just do it after work. Nope, easier to say than do.
