A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks.
“Hello, I am currently growing 5 sour diesel feminized seeds. All 5 have sprouted and are small and healthy. I am growing in soil, in a grow tent, using CFL Lighting, I plan on purchasing a better light, but can’t at the moment, due to cash flow. My question is, I have 2 of the seedlings in one 3 gallon pot, and the other 3 seedlings in another 3 gallon pot. Should I transplant my baby plants into seperate pots, and what size…?? Or can I leave them be. If I do need to transplant my plants, should I do it now or wait until they are bigger, they are about 2 inches tall right now, they sprouted thru the soil on July 10th. Any help would be greatly appreciated”
I start with 5" pots, as it’s easier to regulate the water. The first week or two, you need next to no water, I like to drizzle water around the pot edge, so the roots seek out the water. Also give them a mist.
About week two I’ll give them a good water, then leave them untill dry, then repeat. Usually takes 3 days between waters. Unless it’s really hot cold.
About week 3/4 I’ll move to a 12" pot for about two weeks, doing the same, drown and dry out routine, then move them to thir final home, either a 5 or 3 gallon bag. This is where the I’ll feed for the first time, though it’s probably not needed as the soil is fresh again.
I do the same same drown and dry routine, but will add seaweed extra to each water. Usually 3/4 days heat depending.
I’ll then feed next about 3 weeks later. Which will be close to flower switch time.
That’s my loose routine. Probably not the most efficient, but it’s a good place to start.
