When a plant get middle age and all you used was ffhf soil and it begians to fill like a sponge and roots although small making it hard ? Can i fork up the soil around plant to brake up a little or just squeeze the grow bag its in. Dont seem to be hurting things yet just need to figure out…thx
The sponge feeling it the actual root ball filling in i would not be digging around it myself what size and type of pot you using ?
I would just leave it alone bro
Why do you feel it’s necessary to work the soil the plant look healthy from the picture
I did forget my glasses tho today lol
I use the same type of pots bro
Just keep water and feesing as you have been
It’s normal fir itvti take linger when the plants get older its a sign you have a healthy root system in the pot
I guess my concern was watering, not soaking in as fast and i didnt know if it was hurting something.
Your good that’s normal
They may even start running off faster once eoot ball is full everything look good so I would change anything
If you mist your soil real good with a spray bottle or better a pump sprayer before you water , this will get the top soil damp and help the water or feeding solution soak in rather than stay on top of the dry soil spilling over the edges.
Or you could water from the bottom if you’re concerned about having dry pockets in there.
Place the bag in a pan of your solution and let her soak it up. It would require some flushing, using this method, but could ease your mind.
