watering, fertilizng after pollinating

There are various opinions on how much to continue watering and fertilizing females during the 3 months between pollination and harvest. Is there a best practice? And is it climate-dependent? (I live in the warmest part of Oakland, CA. I'm guessing the climate is similar to Kim Rupert's in Santa Barbara.)

I, too, do seedlings and just joined you, I think I can share some tips))
Hi, usually I fertilize no more than 2 months, depending on the climate of course, where it is drier and hotter need watering more often, and where it is more humid, then of course water less often.
