Most plants elongate at night in search of light. Conversely, root systems dont do a lot in the dark so always water in the morning or when lights come on IMO.It’s my first grow but I work 12 hour shifts (wife check in in the plants when I working but she just looks no touching and reports temps and humidity to me ) when I work day shift I leave at 4am and check the plants just before I leave and come home at 7pm I see leaf movement (trying to return to previous positions from my leaf tucking) and bit of growth when I get home, but when I work midnights I check them at 4pm just before I leave after sleeping all day (lights off at 10) and get home at 7am and refill humidifiers and tie down for the day (LST) I notice much more growth right in the morning. Not sure if it’s a consistent thing with all strains / genetics but I’m growing 3x Strains and for me I see the most growth difference right in the morning when the lights come back on (running 18/6 on autos)
Helps avoid root rot and over watering. Night watering can cause all kinds of issues.
Get a wifi humidity/temp monitor. I have a Govee, works decent. Then you can monitor from work. My humidifier is wifi too and I can make adjustments from my phone.
