I’ve started my plants in the red Dixie cups. I’m planning on transplanting to a 1 gal. pot then a 5 gal. pot to finish. What are the prevailing thoughts on the subject?
BTW, the 5 gal. pot will be the cloth type.
If photos then ok if autos id start in final home as to not stress it. Stress slows down an auto alot in producing good stuff.
I grow photos with the progression: solo cup (2 weeks) → 10" plastic pot (additional 2 to 4 weeks)-> 10 gal fabric bag. Many use smaller final homes though and they grow just fine. I prefer a large pot because it’s been my experience that the root system will actually fill a 10 gal pot and more roots = healthier cannabis plants.
We grow outdoor photo full sun. We like to start the seeds directly into one gallon pots inside. Next we go right into the 50 gallon smart pots as there finely resting place. Sometime around mid to late May.
