Yes they will be fine
I’ll just lay low for a while with the recharge. I did not give them that much water. Looking to trans plant Tuesday so there will be more soil to help take up the mistake.
Dont sweet it u should look at mine right now I accidentally had the light to close and over watered a little. Opps urs look good I cant wait to watch this grow
@PurpNGold74 I think I read that when you prep your pots for a transplant you do it a couple days early. At that time you moisten the new pot to let it stabilize. If you are going from a 1-gallon pot to a 5-gallon pot what is your procedure?
Do you have a journal?
Yup a new one with northern lights and blue berry. Killadruids bb, bd, bc, pc, nl and gog scrog grow 5 plants
@PurpNGold74 any help on transplanting and moisture in pot before the deed is done.
Plants grew another inch today. At this rate I see super cropping in their future.
My bad man. Notifs be buzzing.
Say u are going from 1 galls to 5 galls… i like to:
- Set soil in big pot about halfway
- Put little pot in big pot
- Fill in soil around little pot (creates a hole where the little pot is sitting, after u move it.
- This is where i prefer to wet the big pots soil. Not necessary. But it helps. Dont DRENCH IT. Just enough to thoroughly wet it. Then i pause the transplant for 24-36 hours.
- Remove rootball from little pot, place into big pot.
- Cover with more soil and lightly water in. LIGHTLY. The other soil will still be damp. I only water then to pack the dirt in
Awesome! Thanks for the tutorial. I have done it that way but not wetted the new pot prior to planting. I like the though of getting the soil a little wet first.
Definitely not a mandatory step. Probably not the smartest neither. That soil will sot wet for a while (depending on ur environment $
Used @PurpNGold74 method to transplant tonight. Moistened their forever homes with 5-cups of nutes and water yesterday and let it sit overnight. When I pulled the pot I used for the mold the soil had slight moisture all the way around. Gave the girls some nutes with recharge so I knew the soil was moist I. Their 1-gallon pots. Glad I did they were still pretty dry, so far it looks like I have the watering side down this time around…but it’s still early. Fed them a little after the transplant around the transition between their old and new soil in a effort to keep them happy. I’ll see how they look tomorrow.
They’re looking Really Happy & healthy, nice job on the transplant , I dislike transplanting so I only do the one from cup to final home. is that a little heater or humidifier?
Why’s that Purp, for the soil to hydrate itself?
Have a good week guys!
I like to think it drains a bit more. Hate making em sleep in wet shoes… but i rewater the topsoil in after transplant so honestly If it matters.
Yeah, I think it matters, I like to pre-moisten/hydrate soil first too otherwise it seems its hydrophobic which makes it even more of a pita to get it “going”.
Exactly! This is especially true of ‘clones in a cup of water’ the roots grew in pure water so soil MUST stay hydrated first week or two
Thanks @Mote when I looked at them this morning they looked a little stressed with their droopy leaves. Tonight they look a lot better and my train wreck grew another inch in 24-hours. I figure another 3 weeks before the flip so I transplanted a little earlier than planned that will allow me to start my lst earlier. I think I could have given them a little more liquid yesterday I still have @raustin in my head telling me not to water too much so I tend to be on the lite side.
The little black device in the picture is a oscillating fan. It worked well when they were in 1-gallon pots not so well with the 5’s so it has been removed from the tent.
Hi @Bubblehead, glad to hear they’re doing better. I guess if you’re going to err you’d be better of doing so on the side of caution w regard to the watering.
I’m pretty sure I drowned some of the sprouts I had, so hard to tell w them young uns sometimes.
My other girls are now somewhat out of the danger zone so I dont fret as much if they get too dry, and they seemed so yesterday but tough nuggies, they didnt get water till today. Next time they will get more since they are getting bigger & their needs will of course increase.
Been cautious w the Recharge but I will be very interested to see how their roots have developed as I progress w the grow. What else are you using for root health, I know @imSICKkid is using Tribus and it looks like a great product, certainly seems like its worth looking into it. Dont know if you could use both tribus & recharge (dont know if you’d have to?!) but…
@Mote They were getting a little too big for their britches so I had to teach them a little lesson tonight and start their lst. Right now I’m using Recharge, mammoth P and some stuff called Willard’s Water. I looked at the Tribus and was impressed with the results I saw. I’m thinking about doing a side by side next grow Tribus vs Mammoth P.
During their check tonight I noticed that they grew again and had to raise my light. I’m slowly bumping up the watts to help them slow their stretch to the light. Checking the soil I believe they will be ready for a straight watering Thursday. I may sneak some calmag in to help them out on this growth spurt.
Yep, they need some learning from time to time. some of my girls are already too big for their britches… Hacking them today as well lol planning on taking some clones just for fun
I heard about the Mammoth P but not Willard’s, seems like people are drinking the Willard’s water, must be really good
I’m tempted to try out the Tribus, if my NLA gets w the program I’ll definitely pick some up.
The whole root thing I really want to improve upon. What are your thoughts on the Mammoth so far & how much have you been feeding?
My plants are doing really well the stems have some good size to them I’m not sure if it something with the mammoth or the strains. I guess time will tell.
