So, i wanted to go ahead and get my seedlings into the 3 gallon smart pots. I have no doubt i did this to early but I could not help myself. I rinsed the 60/40 coco coir in the smart pots. I had placed an empty solo cup in the middle as @spyonyou suggested.
What are some of your alls methods of transplanting without the medium falling apart once it has left the container? My 60/40 coco coir and perlite medium was moist but it was very fragile and crumbly (is that even a word, lol). @Draco1 @SKORPION @anon89489555
It held together good while i had the cup upside down with the seedling between my fingers but on the turn to place it in the premade hole it fell all apart, yikes!! I managed to get them in the hole upright but it was scary, especially when you feel like the seedlings are super fragile. I realized i was holding my breath the hole time.
Anyways, they are in 3 gallon smart pots and have domes in which the leaves cannot touch the sides. That is what started the whole thing. I didnt like the leaves touching the sides of the domes…
The flushed 3 gallon smart pots x4 increased the humidity in the tent to 79% last i peeked in too.
