This is my first grow. I've been reading/watching stuff for a couple of years. Even though this was going to be a "practice grow", I was pretty confident that it was gonna be a breeze to grow and smoke my own stuff.

So i had these bagseeds, 3 of them to be exact. And macgyver'd the shit out of a grow room with custom build active cooled dimmable COBs (240w total w/ full spectrum) and such for them. Only one of them germinated since they're like 4-5 years old. I planted it in a Biobizz Light-Mix and gave it tap water when it needed. It was all going great.

Now it's ~20 days old and I think I screwed up bad. I watered too frequently and too much (I gave it around half a liter every 2 days in the span of a week). After not giving water to it for 4 days and soil still being damp, leaves drooping... Situation was dire. I picked it up, mixed the soil then replanted it (was kinda smelly but no sign of root rot yet). I poked holes to aerate and gonna wait some more.

And it's slightly canoeing up too. Since this is a learning experience, I'm open to suggestions and thoughts. Here how it looks and a poll for everyone to contribute.

It's 24-20 degrees Celcius(70-75 F) with a humidity of 45-55% in the room if anyone wants to know.

It should be fine, just let it dry out a little more before you water. It's all trial and error, if you just learn from your mistakes you will be a much better grower in the end.

It will be just fine.. I was just reading about bottom watering..
Bottom Watering vs Top Watering: The Facts – Flourishing Plants
Thanks for the quick replies, I hope for the best! It's my goal to make mistakes and learn from them for future grows to be honest. Not going for the yield or anything. I'll look into that technique, too.

Whatever you have under your pot is not let it drain to dry out.
