This particular Bruce Banner is showing signs of overwatering (just transplanted 4 days ago). My Cherry Bombs are doing great, any suggestions as to how to water the next cycle?

You need to post more info mate, your set-up, lights, details like that. Nobody can help you with watering if they don't know what you've been doing up until now.

The substrate is Fox Farm Ocean Forest, water is a PH of around 6.7 and we have Next light cores about 20in above the plants. We just transplanted them from a greenhouse to indoors Wednesday, so it’s only been 5 days.

PH is high and plant is dying of thirst. It will be dead in 24 hours without water

Don’t you want the PH around 6.5-6.8? Or is that for a different medium like cocoa.

Oh man that is a sad, sad plant. Also, the ones in the background look a bit droopy too, might be the angle...
"Around" 6.7 is pushing it. How often do you water and how much? Do you check the pH runoff from your soil? Might be building up something nasty in there.

Overwatering and underwatering can look alike. The soil needs to dry out between watering. Those look like fabric pots. You can feel the bottoms of those to see if they are still wet before watering. If you have underwatered the leaves will feel dry.

This is an easy fix. Hang in there. You are on the right track.

A week ago to yesterday after watering without nutrients. Will water again with tomorrow, but so far looking good! Going to invest in an RO system though, we have 170 ppm in our well water. We moved the ph down to 6.5 so runoff is 6.7 now.
