When water in S/H Male
Default When water in S/H

Hi everybody. In a website I read the following words
How Often Will I Need to Water?
Because the LECA holds water, you will only need to water every 2-3 weeks.


Buy in another thread of this forum I've read to water every day or am I wrong?

There are a lot of factors in determining how long between waterings one can go, with the goal being to never let it dry out. However, because it keeps the reservoir chemistry more constant, it is better to water more frequently.

How wide is the pot? How deep is the reservoir? Is the plant thirsty and drinks it reservoir quickly? or is it a slow drinker? Is the pot wide open and allowing evaporation to dry it out quickly? Is the surface covered with a non-porous material that helps to prevent evaporation? All of these factors (and more) can determine how often the reservoir needs replenishment.

The more often you water a plant in S/H during the growing season the faster the plant will grow.
