Too small for 12 days?

Ill also add, your soil looks bone dry at the top there. I know everyone reads the pitfalls of 'noob mistake #1 overwatering' but they do like a moist soil not too dry either, though they wont die the same as over watering they wont flourish either. Id say water with luke warm water and wait until the surface soil begins to feel dry, then lift the pot and judge the weight. Usually you can then water in a day or 2 once the surface begins to dry out. Bone dry suggests to me youre leaving it too long.
I give about 1/3 of a bottle of water every 36 hours or so, air circulates well just under the top soil she normally stays moist but I heard it's better to water less more often than to over water

you are better watering until 10% run off to ensure you are soaking all the soil. do some google research if you want but yeh that is underwatering imo. anyone care to agree?

Depends what soil he's in. When I grew in SS#4 it would take 2 weeks to dry out in a large pot if I did 10% run off with a seedling.
