Also any plant has it's specific needs and this is because of variety of strain, pot, soil, climate, etc. As a newbie I was thinking to water every 2 to 3 days but I realized that the only thing I did was overwatering.You see, many soils-just as mine- are designed to hold the moisture longer so maybe you have to consider this fact too.Dont be afraid to leave it as much as it's necessary to dry.As I said, i was watering too often but when I realized that was wrong, I changed to every 7 to 8 days and everything was fine . Now my plant is bigger and stronger so I water about every 5 days, depends on weather cause I grow outdoors. As Beach_Bum said, you have to learn your plant and see when is thirsty. It is not something extreme difficult. I am new grower too and I tell you that I learned quick how to do it right.If I can, you can as well!
