How to transition plant from hydroponics to soil

I’m being gifted a month old photo that has been grown in hydroponics. It’s in a 3 gallon grow bag and has been in a tent. Since I don’t have a hydroponic setup, can I transplant it into a 5 gallon bag with Fox Farms soil until I can move it outside in a couple of months? I don’t want to kill it, it’s such a beautiful, healthy plant.
Also, will it be happy with a 3 lever/arm (?) grow light, not in a tent? It’s still in veg and I want to keep it that way until I can transplant it outside.
Thanks for any suggestions that would be helpful for keeping her alive for a couple of months until transplant.


I don’t see why not. I’d have to see the plant and pot.

You can keep a plant in veg for a bit.

I’m not a cloner but I’ve seen some of these guys keep mother plants for a long time. I see them using smaller pots and weak lighting just enough to keep them healthy without growing alot. Then when they’re done with the mom they’ll transplant it into new soil and a bigger pot then putting her to flower. If you look at the top right of this page there’s a search :mag: thing I’ll bet you could find something on keeping a mother plant healthy… good luck :+1:

Thank you!
Since it’s a photo I’m concerned about it getting too big for me to handle/conceal indoors. If I clone and prune maybe I could control the growth for a while. And yes, I’ll do the search!

Thank you!

Im curious why you would want to change to soilive done some comparison grows now usi g clones from same mother some in soil and some in coco all other parameters the same and the coco out performed by 150%

Good question. Simply because I don’t have a hydro set up or a tent. If I can keep her alive by using Grow Big I will but it seems more complicated to me than just that. She came out of a highly regulated tent environment so I’m not sure I can come close to matching that. What do you think?

I would leave her in the coco and feed her to runoff with ph’d nute water every day and she will reward you. Share some pics if ya can. We love pic’s
Coco will require feeding everyday but worthit. Get a good light before the tent if its one or the other

you don’t need a hydro set up. i second keeping her in coco

Thanks for the advice! Any suggestion on a budget LED light from Amazon?

That seems to be the consensus and easier for me if I don’t need an elaborate setup! Thank you!

This light will make some awsome bud. It has been the go to until the ledmarket took over. I run 2 of these in a 4x8 room and they are great. They do make some heat and draw a little more power but worth it.
