I set a fan blowing towards the plant.
I uploaded a video showing the intensity its receiving.

I want to know if that's too much air or is it OK for the plant to shake like that?

A non-oscillating fan blowing on a plant can cause wind burn. I suggest getting an oscillating fan. The plant needs fresh air circulation. A constant fan on the plant wont allow the plant to use up the co2 (non sealed room) around its leaves.

I would say that is a bit too much for a plat at that stage, I would slow it down a bit or maybe change direction maybe against a wall so the plat get indirect wind.
I am doing that way with my fan and work perfectly, the plant is slightly shaking because of the wind bouncing back from walls and circulating in the room

I would slow that fan down brother. Too mich wind can cause the leaves to twist. A genlte breeze its more than enough. Hope this help.

all perfectly ! the girl looks healthy. Direct the fan not on the top but diagonally. so the hot air blows on the plant :point_up_2:

That movement looks a bit strong to me.. I have seen leaves twist and distort with too strong of breeze like Athos mentioned...typically they'd say aim at a wall so it can catch a slighter breeze with small movements, but being in a bucket I'm not sure if you can do that?. Yes the breeze does strengthen the plant, and make it sturdier. If youre planning on doing the "LST" you have listed, you'll want to at least stay on top of that before your stems become to woody and less bendable.
The plant looks great though I was shocked at the growth for 14 days!

It's too much; it looks like they are in a storm. It's supposed to be gentle and though it helps, it's not a must, I've never done it. What you have might give you wind burn; which is when the wind excess dehydrates the leaves and they start to curl.
Also, be careful with how often you feed, once every 7 to 10 days is enough and according to you, you are feeding every 4 days or so. Also, unless you are using light mix soil, you should not be feeding so soon, most complete / heavy / all mix should last you a 2 or 3 weeks into flowering if you are going to up pot to a 11 liter pot. A 500 cc pot lasts me the first 2 weeks and a 2 liter pot lasts me the 3d to 5th weeks of veg before needing to transplant again. I would wait at least 2 weeks before up potting, else the roots might not hold all the soil and you could shock the plant when transplanting it.
Don't rush to flip to 12/12, I would recommend 5 weeks of veg in order to get a nice canopy that will in turn give you lost of flower. Consider doing TOP or FIM a week before switching to keep the canopy even; I would do it in the 4th week and veg until the end of the 5th week, then switch.

I’d say it’s fine, a gentle breeze over them strengthens and makes the stems thicken up. Which sets up your plant to hold a nice yield without needing much support, if any at all. Definitely a must. Hope this helps
