It’s tricky, and I get it, but it’s not that complex either. Simply lift the pots to check if the soil is dry or wet.

You can adjust the amount later once you gain experience.
Autoflowers are very quick. So quick that you won’t have time to plan things at the last minute. Do you want to grow in soil or containers? Are the plants going to be in a balcony or terrace?

Soil generally provides all micro and macronutrients required for the plant to grow. However, you need to grow like a pro, remember? Thus, mixing in some kelp meal, blood meal, bone meal, seaweed extracts, and humic acid will definitely help.
