how much water for 5 gallon pot

How often should you water 5 gallon pots?

Keeping this in view, how often do you water smart pots?

This will allow the soil to slowly absorb water incrementally, until all of the soil is thoroughly wet. Take notes, make calculations, and get your plants on a watering schedule. Setting a cycle where the plant needs to be watered every two to three days is ideal.

Subsequently, question is, can you over water fabric pots? It might be tough to really soak a plant in a grow bag as the water will come right out. In contrast, a traditional pot may need less watering, but it is easy to over water. If you overwater a plant in a traditional pot they could drown or develop mould or fungus.

Also to know is, can you over water smart pots?

So when using Smart Pots indoors, unless you are using a tray, you will require extra large saucers or holders to fully capture runoff water. Because these dry out so easily, you can‘t overwater your plants, but that means you will be watering them more often also.

Do fabric pots need drainage holes?

Start with moisture Water deposited at the surface is drawn by gravity to the base of the pot. Even if they have drain holes, plastic pots tend to let water accumulate near the bottom of the vessel. Pots without drain holes (and those sitting in drip trays) are even worse off.

I grow in 5 gallon buckets and I give my plants about 1 liter each every 2 or 3 days. Seems to keep the soil nice and moist until day 3, then it’s time for another drink.
