Boy maybe I wasn’t watering enough the soil wasnt even taking water at first it was so dry. After i transplanted i watered about a litre or leas and it looked terrible.
you should read my work on watering... a lot of people swear by my method.

And um most ...really almost all of my unique ideas came to me before there was a safe place on the internet to learn...so I taught myself and I do things weird.

I drilled 4 half inch holes in the bottom of my pot and am slowly adding water gallon my gallon flushing so I hope this goes well. I have installed a fan above my plants to circulate airflow

Cannabis is drought tolerant and causing minor droughts increases root mass substantially and actually speeds up growth significantly...when done propperly.

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.

its the wet/dry cycle that you are skipping by watering so often with smaller amounts. You are overwatering by watering too often

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

some prune autos, but most dont... autos dont care about the light and will flower no matter what... most run 18/6 all the way through I think... but I am not an auto expert.
