I normally grow in 7 gallon pots with coco coir. This time I was low on coir so folded cloth pot down to half size. My question is can I add fresh coir ( it’ll be about 2-3" more coir on top) on the top of existing medium or should I cut the bottom part of cloth pot off, and more coco into another 7 gallon pot with 2-3 gallon worth of new pot in bottom? Thanks
If you were willing to sacrifice the pot by cutting anyway then it would be better to fill another pot and transplant imho.
Good deal. Thanks for your opinion. The reason I asked is the guy at Indoor Gardens said it would be fine to just add more coco on top of current coco. Appreciate your input.
I forgot to mention about how much stem u have above soil /coco. If enough room then just top up current pot.
I’ll have just barely enough room to add it on top. Would you recommend lightly scraping some of the hard outer coating of main stem ( like you do with bottoms of clones?
For the few inches that ur going to cover I prob wouldn’t if they’re already well established.
I did it to one with no issues.
