during bud formation stage of flowering plant ,should we decrease our watering for buds to quickly bloom or increase more watering at that stage for fast blooming .which is more scientific way.

is it true that for formation of buds first we have to decrease watering intervals and after buds have formed
then only we should frequently water with adding potash for better blooms.

what is the science of watering and how it is related to flowering

Unfortunately, this is very plant specific. Simply put, some plants will require more water when flowering, while others will require less, or even none, while flowering.

Generally, a plant will want the soil to increase in pH slightly, which comes with an increase in phosphorus and potassium, or a decrease in nitrogen content.

Combined, the ratio change of nutrients, along with many environmental factors that are plant specific will dictate flowering in any given plant.
