    It's not a recipe. Water until it flows out the bottom of the pot. When the top 2 inches of soil is mostly dry, water again. Watering frequency depends on temperature, humidity, sun exposure, etc. – Tim Nevins Jul 16 at 16:03
  • You can just allow 2 inches of water to stay in the bottom of a 6" pot. – black thumb Jul 16 at 19:34
