Should I cut her upper fan leaves to help lower growth?

I basically water anytime the top inch
Of soil feels bone dry

See that’s a technique I think gets people in trouble. That first inch or two may be dry, but the middle and bottom of the pot could still be real wet. Especially in plastic pots.

Yes I concur, fingering your medium is definately not accurate. He would do much better to fill a similar sized pot with medium and use that as a guage while at the same time considering the weight if the plant. I can tell when my plant can use water now because I let them go as long as possible between waterings… Im not in coco so I can.

Yeah, I trained using a soil moisture meter so I could get used to the weight of a dry container of soil.
