what is RO? and also when i water i water the outside edge of the pot right? not in the middle?
look here’s how to water..
what’s it comes to watering day, more than likely the surface of your medium will be real dry, so when you pour water on doesn’t matter where think you’ll know, the water will run across the surface, make sure to get it all covered before it starts to soak into the surface and let it soak into the medium for a few minutes than do it again and again till done..

@GNick55 is it bad that my plant doesn’t have a long stalk? or really a gal between the pot and bottom of the plant?
another piece of advice instead of learning the hard way is throw that net in the garbage, totally useless and limits you from working with plants..
maybe once you know what your doing you can use it, but get rid of it for now.. for now we just want to get your plant back on track than you can snip some leaves or lower branches off etc..

i gotcha, do trellis nets not work well?

and okay just making sure some videos i watch the other growers have a longer stalk with a gap in between.

You'll likely need something to hold your buds up, since once they start fattening up, the weight can put a lot of stress on the branches. I believe @GNick55 holds them up from above with rope. It also allows you to help the branches grow where you want them to.

I used a trellis on my first grow (actually, I used 2 which was a huge mistake), and when I took them off, the amount of sag the branches took was pretty amazing. Still on the fence with my 4x4 tent with using one. I likely will. I won't be using them on my auto tent (because they're all growing way differently than each other, so when the time comes I'll have to string them up).

The pros is you can create a mostly level canopy without much issue and also provides support to the buds as they fatten up.

The cons is it makes it difficult to do any maintenance, you can't turn/rotate the pots, and makes it difficult to spot any issues that are facing the walls of the tent.

It all depends on what you feel like dealing with.

Just my $0.02

I’m using this but I only have a 3ga pot. I was having watering issues earlier in my grow and realized I wasn’t watering often enough. Once I got that figured out It bounced right back. I have faith you’ll get her back. Good luck. You can check out my post from early December where I was looking for help. Some good info in there that might help.
