I'm concerned that I'm about to face some rootbound problems. I'm giving her about 1L every 2 days. Leaves sometimes look like they are a bit flat. I don't know if I should move her to a bigger pot or just take the risk and see where it goes.

Hi mate, just looked at her do you mean 5 gallon or 5L? If it’s 5L yes I think you should have transplanted already even though she is an auto. Although I have seen plants grow in tiny pots you will often get deficiency regardless. This is due to the plant being rootbound (check out @stuntedart on instagram).
During the flowering stage especially the “stretch” she will still grow plenty of roots. Providing you transplant ASAP!

You shouldn’t have to transplant more that double the size of the pot now so a 10L will be fine. It may take too long for the plant to start growing roots from the base of the main stem.
So I suggest you DONT bury the current rootball to the bottom of the new pot.

Step 1) Mix up some of your medium (hopfully it’s not hot soil precharged with nutrients) mix with perlite 60/40 should do. Add at least 2L of that soil mix to the bottom of a 10L pot (fabric if you can get one so quickly).

Step 2) Put your root ball into the 10L pot and add the remaining soil around the sides. And water with some well oxygenated water with some 1/2 strength rooting solution.

It will be normal for things to seem like they have slowed down at first but as long as you don”t shock her too much, she shouldn’t even notice the transplant!
Good luck Bro:v::skin-tone-2:

Hey there so if you're only 1 week into flowering I'd say go for it. But definitely get at least a 5 gallon pot and when you transplant her try to make it as easy as possible, soaking the soil in warm water etc. If you can grab a fabric pot youre results would probably be better, you'll at least typically avoid any root bound problems as well as increased oxygen reaching the pot and good drainage.
Best of luck
PS there are a few supplements good for transplanting and shock like foxfarm kelp me kelp you or boomerang.

I've transplanted at this stage with great results. Just a tip, do use a pot 3 to 4 times your current size, either 15 or 20 liters. Your plant will love it and explode with growth.

Hi there! Transplanting now could shock her and may result in a global late in flowering, unless you really now what you're doing and you take serious precautions doing it. From what I see about your nutrients intakes, you're doing great, can't be overfeeding with such little doses. I'd recommend to wait a couple of days how she goes, you probably won't need to do anything if she recovers quickly ;-) I'll be around, keep us up-to-date, and good luck with this beauty!

She looks good to me so far. If you’re going to transplant her do it now before flowering takes off. I wouldn’t do anything during flowering. If you don’t transplant her I would expect her to be fine just a little on the small side. Good luck! :+1:
