Should I repot? Worried!


#1

I’ve noticed various spots on leaves and had a look at the roots. When I’ve taken then out of the pot, I saw the roots growing out the bottom holes, I’m worried they might need more room to grow. What sizes pot should they be in? The plants are about a foot tall, in a grow tent, under LEDs.
Will they survive being repotted?


#2

Yes if you see roots coming out of holes the transplant!!! If not it will get rootbound and not grow


#3

How big a pot r they in??


#4

They’re still in the pots I germinated them in, about 15cm! I didn’t realise how quickly they grow! Needless to say it’s my first grow!! Will they be happier in Coco coir, than soil?


#5

Man I haven’t even started my first grow yet but you need to download Roberts grow bible it will help you soooo much


#6

Seeing as how the are already a seedling I would go ahead with a soil perilite mix for draining so you won’t over water it’s very easy to do early on


#7

@Hammer @Paranorman @ktreez420 can help I’m afraid to give u bad advise


#8

Definitely time to transplant use at least a 3 gallon up to a 5 gallon pot it will probably slow down growing up for a bit as the energy for it is going into the root surge then they will take off again

Sorry but I don’t know anything about Coco frankly I read a lot of people have trouble with it I don’t really think it’s the best for new growers, but that’s jmo, I like Fox Farm ocean Forest because it’s simple


#10

Yes it is simple @Paranorman I am thinking I will just keep using it


#11

If you want to try Coco fox farm coco loco works great but I wouldn’t try straight Coco as a beginner unless you are set up to grow hydroponically


#12

No , don’t try straight Coco yet, that is an alternative to Hydro growing, get a 3-5 gal bucket, put some drainage holes in the sides on the Bottom, fill the bottom with small river rocks for drainage, go to any Walmart, Lowes and find a Good organic soil, yes Fox Farms is better quality but not easily found especially now. Get some perlite and mix 60-40, . Your plant will proly go into a slum for a bit , but it Will come back. watch that water ph. I even mixed in that Cocoa into my organic soil as an added buffer with the perlite.

@Hetty .in a word, Yes . i have cut off 90% of my root balls in my hydro RDWC and they grow back very well .But it will cause some stress .i sujest you use a product that has a B vitamin in it, or super thrive .to off set this .
