I've just checked her and the tips of the roots are poking through the top of the soil I've never noticed this happen before, she's in a 20 litre pot already.

Perfectly normal. The plant is just trying to maximize its root zone. Once the roots hit air they will prune themselves. I usually grow with a layer of perlite on top of my medium so I don't typically see this happening but I can see the pruned roots if I move the perlite. Now that the plant is flowering it really shouldn't be going too crazy with growing more roots and you really shouldn't transplant once you have started flowering anyways.

this is totally normal for a healthy plant, what happens when everything is perfect is that the plant just starts "beasting it and getting after it hardcore" ... could also be from the soil moving when you watered, but i like answer 1 better :joy:. Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Those are your feeder roots first sign of a drowing plant right now your roots at the bottom shut down if i was you i would transplant just to air your root ball out you should see good results a week after transplant :writing_hand::writing_hand::writing_hand::+1::+1::+1::+1:

If you have room feel free to put more soil on top, my grow had root activity above the soil for many many weeks and i didnt see any unhealthy looking roots after breaking the soil. Otherwise you could transplant to a larger container if you're not planning on flipping for a few weeks.
You could also add in some things known to make happy roots like mycorrhizal fungi to help ensure a happy root zone.
The plant looks happy and healthy, good luck with the rest of the journey. :v:

Hello, I see no big Issues on your Lady.Dont worry because of the Roots,it happens. Roots turn back if they come into air.Watch out your watering habits 200 ml should be enough for 3-4 day for your Girl

Given time, the roots will poke both the bottom and top of the soil, nothing to worry about. The slow growth is because you have it in a pot too big for it's size and so has been over watered
