Overseeding water requirements

When over seeding a bahia lawn in Central Florida, how long and how frequent should it be watered?

Grass seed needs to be damp, not flooded for a couple weeks.

Couple waterings per day but temps will dictate, that is why it usually gets done in the fall when cooler!

Best time for warm season grasses is early spring so you may still be ok (though I really have no idea what kind of temps you have in your area right now). You want the seed to stay moist, but not damp. This is usually two or three light waterings per day until the seeds germinate.
