As far as by touch, and if you have good drainage, it's going to look dry but when you stick your finger in it will be moist right under the surface. Like not dry but not even close to wet, it will feel cool to the touch... Hard to explain. But once it actually starts to feel dry to the touch then water. Don't wait for it to fully dry out. If you have good drainage the water won't be held below so much so you won't have to try to fight the wetness. Basically have a balanced soil and shoot for a balanced moisture content, trying not to hit either extreme dry/wet. MOIST. You'll probably have to water at different intervals than you're used to. Not oily like cake thoYou're kool dude. The leaves are still cupping up, but they aren't sagging and sad as much. The first set is, but the rest isn't. I'm understanding a little better now.

If you are still up to helping me a bit, can we talk watering from this point?
You said letting the top get dry the way I was doing it should be fixed. How do I determine when it's time to add more water? When you say moist, what are we talking? In my mind, it means kind of like chocolate cake.
Would I be better off taking a more scientific route and weigh the pots wet and dry (I can weigh a dry pot with extra soil I have), then water when it hits a certain weight? I read something that I think said maybe 25% or 35% or 50% of wet weight. I'll find it again to be sure.
I don't want to abandon these plants unless I seriously fuck them up, and I've done worse before and smoked decent bud. I will if I should tho. I have plenty of seeds and am willing to break eggs lol.
