Many people overcomplicate this. Follow these rules of thumb:

  • Water when soil is dry. Stick a finger in the soil and if its dry an inch down, water.
  • Water until the water starts draining out the bottom and let it drain all the way out, don't let it stand.
  • Overwatering = watering too often. Don't water too often.
  • More sun = more watering. Less sun = less watering.
  • If you have some weird plants, look it up. But this is what I follow for almost everything.

I can't take credit. I found them on Reddit a while ago and have been following it ever since: https://www.reddit.com/r/houseplants/comments/9jd1ec/do_all_my_plants_need_to_be_watered_thoroughly/
