It sounds like you know what you are doing and from the photo and description of your practices the plants seem to be doing well so far and are likely to survive.
They need to be kept moderately moist, but you may not need to water every day. You don't want to encourage root rot.
You might also consider a product that helps plants become established that you add to the plant water once a month during the growing season. Just ask at any garden center.
