Day 51: Watered and fed with 2.25ml/l both BioGrow and BioBloom + 1ml/l Top-Max. I noticed a lot of fungus gnats during the past 5 days. I'll get some yellow traps and hope that the plant can take it at this stage. Other than that she's still stretching a bit, now at almost 55cm. Room humidity is incredibly low right now, mostly between 35 and 37%. I think it might need 3-4 weeks from here, so not sure if that's too low for the moment.
Day 55: The buds are growing a bit slower than I expected. I think this has mainly to do with the small pot size and changing light cycle (I had a few times differences between 30-60 mins in the past 10 days). I'm trying to keep the light schedule steady and hope that the buds are soon exploding as they should. Will also water today with 2.5ml/l BioGrow + BioBloom and 1ml/l TopMax

Grow Questions
TheMightyShark week 1 started grow question 2 months ago
Container to increase air humidity
I'm already having a wet towel in my room 24/7, but I think it would be very beneficial if I could increase the air humidity around my plant to 60%+ (now at around 40%). Would it work to put a glass or plastic container on the plant until it has reached a certain development?

Plant. Too short

Definitely, that's exactly what I do. They are so delicate at this stage and need all the moisture they can get and absorb mostly through their leaves while the roots are still developing.
TheMightyShark week 6 started grow question 3 weeks ago
New leaves have yellow and/or curled tips (-> nutrient burn?), and many leaves have their edges curled up (-> root problem?). The pot that I'm using is fairly small and only has a small hole for drainage. Can this develop into a serious problem?

You will get some lighter green leafs off the newer growth they should be fine as the plants develops. As far as the curling I would suggest back off on the feeding nutes and just feed ph'd water for a couple times and see if it goes away. As far as the pot only having one hole for drainage if all possible make a few more you need to have proper drainage allowing the soil to dry and not get soggy at the bottom between feedings. Happy Growing

hello dear, I think you can decrease the dose of biobizz biogrow and increase the dose of biobloom, but be careful, do not change the nutritional levels too much.. She looks good, c'mon bro :)

@piritino, Btw i've considered your advice to increase the pot size but ultimately came to the conclusion that it would cause too much harm to change pots while an auto enters the flowering stage. I did some research and found out that the max. yield you can get out of a 1 gal pot is around 30g, which is more than I'd smoke in 6 months anyway. Hoping for 20g+ on this grow. That said, I'll definitely get much bigger (fabric) pots for my next grow.

@piritino, Thanks :) I increased a little bit today to 2.25ml/l each, but I'm a little hesitant to go higher because some leave tips are still yellow. Not sure if this is really coming from the nutrients or something else. What was the maximum that you fed?

hi friend,
I think you can go up to 2,5/3ml / L biobloom
I'm glad you chose a fabric pot for the next grow :)
