Miscalculated sourdough starter in bread recipes

I had planned on making one loaf of Tartine country loaf, but I accidentally used the full amount of water, but half the starter, so I had to subsequently make the full recipe, with the exception of the starter. Can I add more starter later in the fermentation process?

You don't need to add more starter- it will just take a little longer to rise. Adding more starter to the dough can be done, but it could be a little tricky and upset the balance of moisture/flour in the dough you have already mixed. I'd just be patient and let it have longer to rise.
