Plants need sunlight, nutrients, and water to grow. If you are planning to grow the White Fire cannabis strain, then you must ensure that your plants get the appropriate amount of water. With some of the growing methods you cannot see the roots of the cannabis plant, so you cannot really be sure what is happening below the soil. Fortunately, there are many ways and tools that can help you keep your marijuana plants properly hydrated and healthy.
Synopsis of White Fire White Fire is a cannabis crossbreed between The White and Fire OG. Fire OG is popular for its potency and flavor, whereas The White is known for its thick resin production.

The average yield when grown outdoors is around 21 oz. per square meter.
How to Grow White Fire Indoors? The materials needed to grow White Fire indoors include perlite, pots, a drip line, and timer.
Perlite is a mineral obtained from obsidian, which is a type of amorphous glass. Normal perlite is heavy and dense, but for the purpose of gardening, it is heated at high temperatures so that its minerals get softened up. Perlite offers benefits which include:
- Natural filtration system, which retains little moisture and necessary nutrients
- Airflow enhances greatly, allowing roots to breathe
- Prevents the soil from clumping
Smart pots are made from canvas. They help:
- Roots to get good oxygen
- Allowing the heat to escape
- Water drainage
All these characteristics enhance root quality and water control.
Drip Line Plants need to get a consistent supply of water, which gets distributed evenly all around the pot. It’s important not to flood the pots on the surface while watering. Flooded pots can cause the perlite to float on the surface, which then becomes useless. During hot climatic conditions, drip lines will help in the prevention of evaporation.
Timer It is very important to keep track of the amount of water given to cannabis plants. You can use a timer to let you know when it’s time to move the flow to the next pot. It ensures that each of the pots gets the same volume of water.
How Often do You Need to Water White Fire Plants? The watering frequency will depend on various factors like the temperature, size, growth stage, and plant health. Poorly watered cannabis plants will look weak and droopy, while over-watered marijuana plants look the same, but the tips of the leaves will start curling. Either of those conditions is not good, but it will also help you understand the watering schedules that your plants need. Less watering is preferred to over-watering, as the roots need air to be survive and flourish.
Observe the cannabis plant closely to identify when they are thirsty. Signals to check for are:
- Do leaves appear vibrant or not?
- Are they firm and strong?
- Check the soil if it is too dry
Stick your finger in the soil. If it feels dry, and if the plant looks a little weak, then it is time to water again. Pot weight [if small] can also indicate the hydration status. Monitor and figure out the right watering schedule before the plants start looking unhealthy. A healthy wet to dry cycle is needed for roots to develop and reach deeper inside the pot.
Remember that cannabis plants can naturally tackle under-watering or over-watering to some extent. Therefore, take some time to find an ideal watering schedule. Once you identify the right watering plan, your White Fire cannabis plants are bound to flourish happily.
