I’ve never grown, this will be my first time growing marijuana… I have chosen to grow in it’s “adult” pot so I don’t risk anything by transplanting, anyways my question is Do I start it in a pot half full and fill as the plant grows (Like I do with tomatoes) or should I fill the pot completely?
My seedlings went straight into 5gal fabric pots. All full with soil, so no trouble with transplanting
Are you growing autoflowers or photoperiods? @420savedMYlife
Youll want to fill most the way up and you will have better luck growing in smaller planters first and transplanting if you are growing photos, and autos tbh.
I fill right to the top lift my bag up and thump it on the floor a few times top it off and plant by the time it goes to flower it will compact down another couple of inches
Welcome to the community, fill the pot up it will settle a couple inchs in time.
I grow autos frequently and have to transplant from 2" net pots to 6 or 8" netpots feeding roots to the bottome of the pot and filling them full of leca or smart gravel and have yet to really have a shock issue. Done properly you should have little to worry about when done in soil.
Thank you all I appreciate it, I know I’m going to have a lot of questions (some probably most are stupid)
We want everybody to have a successful grow.
There is no stupid questions. ask anything you need a lot of growers here to help.
I’m new to growing as well and found the search/magnifying glass to be helpful. I was able to find some answers a lot quicker because we have all asked them at some point I’m sure.
I also plant seed into forever 5 or 7 gal fab pot.
I don’t grow autos. This support ticket will help us help you.
Welcome to the happy zone.
I’ll add one more trick. Just in case your seedling stretched some or alot, you can add more of your medium up around the stem giving it more support and strength.
Im new, so I left couple of inches to add more if needed.
Great advice thank you
