I wait till they hit the bottom and start to wrap around it. Ideally you want them in final homes before they wrap too much as you want the roots to continue growing downward in the new soil.
I’d give it another week at least probably.
Some say start autos in their final home but I’ve had no issues with the cups myself. But I want mine to grow slow anyway! LOL!
I had such a hard time dialing in my tent in the beginning. I ended up killing so many seedlings. I feel like I have to do it this way because I dont know whats going to survive one week to the next. These are surviving so far. They haven’t shown much top growth in like a week but obviously they are getting their legs. I also learned that these peet cups are horrible for seedlings, they sap the soil of all its moisture. I still have a few seedlings in peet cups but I am keeping them in plastic cups to lock in the moisture.
Yeah - the peat pots suck.
I tried the little black plastic cells my first go and they were a PITA to get them out of and you just had to wait till you saw them at the bottom before you could do anything. They really didn’t give you much root mass to transplant either.
Now I do the clear Solo inside the red ones. want to protect the roots from too much light.
Yeah - it seems like it takes forever till the top starts moving at this point but as long as they’re green you’re good!
Seedlings are looking great man! Very healthy!
Is the symmetry of the leaves in the first photo by accident or arranged? It’s a great pic!!
Yeah - I can’t take credit for the Solo cup system I just found it in my early wanderings on the site last year when we were preparing to go legal - FINALLY!
It works great! I use a bottle cap between the two to make sure any excess water could drain out and a bit of fresh air might make its way down there. I tried to find the smaller ones on like some water bottles. Soda caps are fine but seemed mighty tall in the small space of the cups. The smaller, shorter ones work better. It makes it so easy to check the cup for moisture % and root growth.
Do you dome? I’ve done it both ways and I can’t really see a significant difference. Maybe if I was in a low humidity area but here in the huge swamp of Virginia summertime humidity I’m good!
Seriously - if you could bottle the humidity over Virginia in the summer and pour it over the Hoover Dam Vegas would be set for another 50 years! And they could go back to the best way of disposing of corpses - cinder blocks and chains!
I have slight OCD. Lmao
I dont use domes. I tried but I feel like im smothering them. This time I just kept a closer eye on them. I really think it was a combination of the peet cups and high temps in my tent that was the issue my first attempt. Lesson learned. I did just purchase a humidifier for both myself and the plants. The Air conditioning dries my my place out.
