Default How often should I water?

I planted my California gold in the greenhouse on April 3rd, give it a head start! anyway since the suns out a lot more. the day temps inside are in the Mid 80's + and about 48 at night. Is it okay to leave the plant for a few days dry between waterings?

Our temps have been around the same neighborhood as that lately. I have been giving my potted bananas a little water about every 3rd day. All my bananas have always been in the ground, this is really the first time fooling with bananas in pots. But everywhere you read you see a lot about over watering, so.... I guess its better a little dry than to wet with the cool temps .

When I have some that size I will wait till the soil drys a little on top, then water. Right now I currently am watering all my in ground naners twice daily for 3min putting down about 3 gal per plant.
