    Growing a single critical mass plant in a 2x4 tent with 2000w LEDs and a passive exhaust system. I plan to veg until the SCROG is full.
    Is a 7gal wide pot too much soil? Im thinking along the line of feeding. Will too much soil hold moisture and cut down how much nutrients she gets due to the reduced feedings as I wait for the soil to dry out enough before I can water her again.

    Be more careful in watering ss because to much or to little when roots are not capable of taking the large amount of water then it can truly be detrimental to the roots creating root rot or a pest outbreak depending on soil type and humidity levels pest thrive on moist humid conditions

    Water when the pot becomes light when you pick it up a bit. Or, when you stick a finger in the media and it doesn't feel damp.

    I run #7 pots. Its not to much dirt. If you are going to be in a seven for the life of your plant, you have to have a adaptable watering schedule. Step up your watering amount as needed and dont nute heavy early. I try to have clean water go through one out of three waterings with some weeks getting two water only days.
