    Are my Flowering Conditions Right?

    This is my first grow and I would like some tips on flowering so I don't mess anything up. Here's what I've done so far:

    I just switched my plants to 12/12. Before that I did a nice defoliation on big fan leaves. Now I'm feeding more bloom nutrient and started using the flower stage nutrients.

    Humidity is between 40 and 50%, temp is solid. Lighting is solid too and so is air circulation.
    I had one question on watering though. I only water every other day or so, when the first inch of the soil is dry. I add nutrients and feed the plant usually every watering but I think I'm going to back off and start using nutrients once a week. Is that fair? I've been told to use less nutrients.

    Pics please. Better in moderation. You don't want a nut burn hey ?

      Look pictures is a visual method to identify if your plant is healthy or not. Comments are fine but some of us still like to see what you are describe to us(description of grow, strains,etc.). From what I read from your post you are looking for some opinions, I'm just telling to you to ease up on the nuts and most of my old school growers would agree with me well I think so lol. And yes I would appreciate a photo of your plant cuz I'm a visual person.

      Yes Xena I need to see which one will be our November's centerfold of PlayBud..

    Yes if you can post a picture it's helpful. General rule when watering is also to lift the pot feel how light if it's heavy don't water. Sure soil first inch or 2 could feel dry make you think you should water but don't overwater. What size pots? Tell us more about the products your using. Is someone helping you to grow do they know how to grow?

      How am I able to lower the humidity without purchasing a dehumidifier? Also I'll upload pictures tomorrow. Plants are in dark cycle rn. I'll start watering less too.

    Your conditions are fine, for now, when them flowers start getting bigger you might want to try getting your humidity a little lower.
    Sounds like you got it under control, if they aint showing no bad signs I wouldn't cut the nutrients out either.
    In 3weeks or so you can do another defoliating if needed.
    Good Luck on your first grow ,you will do fine, welcome to GWE.
