Wow I started reading what you posted about watering and really I’m not giving my plants any water at all. So I’m gonna following along and just try watering my second plant before I try a flush since it’s not too bad.
So it’s possible I could only have to water every week or 2 then depending on how fast it drys up? I watered my second plant like you talked about and this would be the first time in the large pot it actually looked watered and some came out the bottom drain holes

if it went a week or two you are doing something way wrong... typically we look at 3-5 days being the max in the container sizes we usually recommend... but yes... the soil is supposed to be a buffer so you don't have to mess with them every day. Your goal in veg is to build up the most massive root ball that you can, and the only way to do that is to let the soil dry out all the way to the bottom and force the plant to send out new roots in search for the very last drop.
I was wondering if I should be pruning my plants to help the tops and will I need to switch the light cycle for autos and how to tell where the buds will flower from I have lots of lower branches that likely won’t do anything
