Newbie transplant

May5 ,Ak47,sprouted seed,Planted in a cell,the root came out of the bottom,transplanted into a biodegradable pot with nursery grade potting soil,again the root came out the bottom. Transplanted into 5 gal buckets filled w nursery potting soil. I was told my plants would die if the tap root saw light,I now have discoloration on a leaf,and some leaf damage. I check my 3 plants daily,they live on a deck 15 feet up,as I said in buckets( which are shaded,bucket not the plant), I do have a sunshade that blocks approx 20-30% of midday sun. ive checked every leaf with a monocular 10x. looking for bugs,had a few removed with my finger. I’m waiting for organic mite control as we speak.i have pics. Not sure how to share them. Is this transplant w/o roots being pot bound to soon,and is the 5 gal buckets enough or should I goahead and plant then in the ground. Pots have drain holes ,and I’m using flower power fertilizer,I chk ph daily,have spritzed leaves w weak fertilizer,I watch my water chlorine. I believe I’m coming down with a case of sensory overload,everytime I revert to the kiss guide to cannibas,I read another article that sends me over the edge,yet again. Thank you for your time.
