Ok in one thread I posted I was going to do a video of how fast plants recover from underwatering. In hopes that new growers see how easy it is for a plant to recover from underwatering when compared to over watering.

I have some toss away clones sitting about and wanted to show how fast they recover. I literally watered then hit record. Yes this is real time

there was viagra in that water... lol. but seriously that is too true, I see too many people over water and then complain they are not getting groth and the plant looks sad. newbies forget plants breath air, not water.

I use to have such a hard time with overwatering I started to let wilt before I would water again. Got it under control now - but it was difficult to grasp, something so easy yet so hard to do it correctly
Yeah honestly ppl will spend forever overwatering. When you under water you learn sooo much faster and its not as hard on the plants.

Like nutrients many new growers trying to cram them down the plants throats thinking more nutrients equals more growth... more is not better and less is easier on the plants and easier to fix.

I am hoping the visual of this video helps some new grows see they dont need to keep craming water down the throats of the plants for fear of under watering. They recover sooo much faster from underwatering than over watering. And they will learn much faster how to water properly from underwatering.

I always lift my buckets, then I know by the weight if its dry or not. if its wet and heavy, no drink for that girl.

Yup easiest way to learn... its easy to say it but I think showing it will make new growers understand what we are saying. Under water once or twice then you will know when to water.

Spend a life time over watering before ya figure it out if ya go the other route.

this is so true here in texas it is normal for 4 months of triple digit heat so in middle of the day when plants look like melted wax your first thought is to water and cool them off , nope your hurting them why,well the leaves may look like wax from the extreme heat but the stem and leaf stem will still be erect or straight out when they also droop then you water.
lot of folks have root rot for this very reason watering them may seem like it helps but doesnt between 12 and 4 all the plant struggle believe it or not makes them stronger buy the time your ready to harvest you have to use loopers to cut the stalks hahahah
